Beanie Sigel Says Kanye West Doesn't Owe Him For 'Yeezy' Nickname

Rapper Beanie Sigel says Kanye West doesn't owe him for coming up with the name "Yeezy."

"As far as his business mind and where he took it -- you know, Kanye work hard for his. Kanye don't owe me nothing," he said in a recent interview.

"You give somebody a fish today, he gon' eat for the day. If you teach somebody how to fish, he gon' eat forever. He gon' teach his family how to fish," he said. "I'm not even thinking about a number but I would love to do some business where I can earn some money. 'Cause I'm a earner. I never was the type to take this for a handout."

Earlier this month, Beans claimed that Ye has promised him $50 million and 5% shares in Yeezy.

Now he says he's focused on his own projects.

"I got a lot of business ventures that I think if me and Kanye was to sit down and have that opportunity to present it to him, you know, it's some money on the table that I can earn."
