Dame Dash, Jay-Z’s former business partner, spoke about his tarnished relationship with the rapper before, however, in the last interview with him, Mr. Dash was more outspoken than usual. In a conversation with Big Boy TV earlier this week, Dash said that Jay-Z made it “dirty”.
According to Mogul entertainment, Jay made the label that they founded really “dirty”. Dash says Jay-Z approached L.A. Reid, the music director who ran Def Jam, and told him that he wanted to take on the role of general manager.
At that time, Reid was the boss of the label that owned Roc-A-Fella Records, Def Jam. According to Dame, Jay-Z told him he wanted to look like “a boss”, but he couldn’t do that by being around him. For Dash, it was “dirty”.
In addition, Dame claimed that Hov was “dirty”, for having separated his identity from the fashion brand he had helped create, Rocawear clothing, before pursuing another commercial partnership without the involvement of Dash.
Dame went on to say that when it comes to business, he doesn’t feel salty for most things, but with Jay-Z, he’s a little bitter about how it all went. “It’s just him!” Said Dame, “before adding that Roc-A-Fella no longer exists.
Earlier this year, Dame Dash made headlines again after being apprehended by authorities for unpaid child support. During a conversation with Page Six, Dash says he had no financial problems and paid the money he owed that day.
After his release, he organized a party and seemed to be having a good time. In another interview, Dash said he thought he looked like a “boss” when he went to the field in handcuffs and his elegant outfit.
People on social media, however, were less forgiving, calling him “dead daddy,” among other derogatory terms. As noted above, Jay-Z, Dame Dash and Kareem Biggs founded the record company in 1995 and were then owned by Def Jam. Def Jam is now owned by Universal Music Group.
