Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- Beanie Sigel, the Philadelphia MC who’s been called “riveting” by the New York Times and others, is set to make his much-anticipated return with The Solution (State Property/Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam). Hitting stores December 11, the “Broad Street Bully” unleashes his highly anticipated fourth album to unveil 17 tracks of pure fire. The Solution’s first single, "All of the Above," is fast becoming the monster radio smash that has eluded Beans for most of his career. It's a melodically grizzly epic, featuring the timeless King of R&B, R. Kelly. Produced by The Runners, “All of the Above” will be officially impacting radio October 29, the video directed by Jessy Terrero (50 Cent’s Candy Shop, Soul Plane) will hit video channels later this month.

“I realize that the game has changed… Everything sounds the same…very repetitive,” says Beanie Sigel, who also adds “The Solution is the answer to all of that. For those that want to here a little rock, jazz or soul, I got all of that!”

The Solution is the follow up to Beanie’s 2005 critically acclaimed, certified gold release The B. Coming, which earned Sigel his highest chart debut to date. “The crucial street credibility that can make or break a hip-hop star didn’t stop curbside for Sigel,” commented USA Today. “His emcee skills and potent rhymes are undeniable.” Beans, who can also be heard on the track “Ignorant Shit,” on Jay-Z’s upcoming epic American Gangster, has brought his most diverse musical offering to the table yet. The Solution features R.Kelly, Scarface, Styles P, Raheem DeVaughn as well as production from The Runners, Eric Hudson (Trey Songz), newcomers Harry & Alex and Philly’s own Dre & Vidal (Usher, Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown).

Very different from his previous projects, Sigel experiments on songs like “I’m In” which shows his smooth “Lady’s Man” persona with the sample of Luther Vandross’ “Make Me a Believer.” “Children” is a soulful Marvin Gaye rendition focusing on the problems in the community among children and their missing fathers while “The Day” produced by Dre & Vidal collaborated with Harry & Alex taps into Beanie’s rock side.

"I consider myself relevant in the rap game at all times," explains Sig. "After you party and do all that, now the real world kicks in. The pain, the stress, agony. The lessons you learn. Your come ups, your downfalls. The real world--which I deal with in my music--is always relevant. All the shit might go through in the course of a day is on my album. I'm talking about religion, spiritually, getting a piece of mind. All that counts and all that's in my music."

Beanie Sigel first hit the scene back in 2000 with the release of his debut LP The Truth on Roc-A- Fella Records, which was certified gold. He then went on to release the The Reason, which introduced the world to his own rap group State Property, a collective of Philly rappers signed to Roc-A- Fella Records. In 2002, Beanie Sigel made his acting debut in Roc- A-Fella’s first film production State Property.
