Dame is real as fukk, that shyt about telling Hov and others that Kelz rapped Aaliyah and they still fukked with kelz is
It’s Crystal clear why rockafella broke up. Dame Dash would be impossible to maintain a business relationship with. I have no idea how they lasted so long.
He is very very dangerously clever but there are flaws with that. I can imagine it’s impossible to reason with him.
This would make the word partnership impossible.
Dame's flaw is that he keeps it too real while everyone else around him is willing to scheme and sell out. This nikka told Hov that Kelz raped Aaliyah and he still does songs/albums with the guy?
nikkas was always trying to make 100% corporate decisions while Dame was trying to do business while still maintaining independence and at least some integrity. He always gets made to look bad in situations where he's just keeping it real. Took heat for running up on Lee Daniels, but what about the fact he loaned the guy money in the first place? Dame always got to look bad when he's just reacting to the hoe shyt people he's working with are doing.
Rocafella broke up cuz Hov sold out and evidently ignored what Dame said about Kelz, not because of Dame's "flaws"
Dame also called out Harvey before anybody else did. He's on the right side of shyt but no one wanna listen cuz they too busy selling out
the whole silent protest sounds like bullshyt and something he thought of after the fact.
Facts, he stayed talking over him. He's annoying like that, smh!
Best way to describe Dame and one of the reasons I love him (pause )
You gotta be able to see through the bullshyt but it's a lot of gems he drops in between too. Very intelligent dude and a real boss
But her bday is later in the year, like Sept or Oct so she would've been 14 during most of '94, and 16 when Ain't No N!gga dropped summer of '96.
It's easy to say that, but you gotta consider the fact that he pretty much let Jay do what he wanted, including do an album and tour with a nikka Jay knew he hated so why would he be difficult to maintain a business relationship with?
He pretty much admitted in the Cannon interview that that was Jay's call all the way and he had no choice but to ride with it because that was his man and his partner.
He didn't go on a rant all over the place clowning Jay or Kellz and he didn't try to block the project from happening.
From the outside looking in, it seems to me that Dame knew he had a great product (Jay and the rest of Roc-A-Fella records roster), a solid team, so why kiss the ass of people that he knew wasn't down for the cause?
The problems only started when his partner decided to jump ship.
Before then, them nikkas was teflon.
It's like you and your homey decided to play "good cop, bad cop" not knowing the whole time that your homey was going to parlay his "good cop" role into completely removing you from the equation after y'all agreed on them roles together.
Pure D fukk nikka shyt.
Remember, he also said he had no idea Jay green lighted that infamous Def Jam marketing meeting and he went in there riding for the squad not knowing that his partner was already going behind his back.
Jay let that man play himself like a fool (all them people in that office knew Jay ok'd the meeting and didn't say shyt) when all he was doing was riding for the brotherhood that he thought they had together.
Dame should've known never to trust a Brooklyn nikka.
KRS put all of us up on game in '87...
"Brooklyn keeps on takin' it."
Dame is also a liar, so who knows what's real. He's also stubborn and chose to die on his own horse....
There's a part in this interview where Nick straight up asks him "There was no time during the split that things were offered. I'll take this and you take that"
Dame says no and explains how he just got surprised and fukked.. but just a few years ago he said this:
Jay decided to sever business ties with his fellow founders; their stake in the company was sold back to Island Def Jam for a reported $10 million, while controlling interests in the remaining clothing, film, and alcohol ventures were sliced up. Jay signed a three-year contract to become president and CEO of Def Jam–a position he would leave in 2008 for Live Nation. He offered the rights to the name “Roc-a-Fella” to Dash and Biggs in exchange for the recording masters to Reasonable Doubt, but the pair wouldn’t make the deal. “We all earned those masters,” Dash says.This turn of events remains bewildering. “The people that I was helping, once they realized their dreams, they did what a criminal would do,” Dash continues. “They stabbed you in the back. Think about the frustration of building a brand for years that should be taking care of your family, and then the person that was the closest to you saying, ‘Nah, you can’t have no parts of it,’ and flushing it.” (Village Voice)
So he admits he was offered an exchange. And he would have been the sole owner (or shared with Biggs) of Roc-a-Fella. But they chose to keep RD instead. A stupid, dumbass move, made out of being stubborn
