Roc-A-Fella vet Beanie Sigel isn't in the spotlight the way he once was, but he's been popping up in interesting ways lately. He was on Meek Mill's remix of Young M.A.'s "OOOUUU" (before his relationship with Meek Mill went downhill), he was remixed by Dej Loaf, and he's one of the guests on Dave East's Kairi Chanel. Beanie Sigel and Dave East recently released a video for their song, "The Real Is Back," and you can watch that below. Here's what Dave told Noisey about the collaboration:

That was like a dream come true for me because Sigel is one of my top three favorite rappers of all time. I grew up on Beans. Just to be able to be in the same room. He gave me a lot of game that night. We both Muslim so that was another level of respect. It was beautiful man. That whole thing let me know I'm still on pace to be where I need to be.

Beanie Sigel has a few upcoming shows this month with Stalley and then other shows in May. The May run includes a Brooklyn date on Knitting Factory on 5/5 with Manhattan Mal, Young Ros and Tim Wicked (tickets). All dates are listed below.

Back in 2015, Beanie Sigel reunited with Jay Z at Jay's intimate b-sides show in NYC.
