Dame Dash Gets Currensy On Roc-A-Fella

    It looks like Damon Dash isn't done with the Roc-A-Fella name or brand. Dash recently hooked up with rapper Currensy to try and sign him reportedly to a pressing and distribution deal with Def Jam through the Roc-A-Fella imprint, which Def Jam owns, "The name is mine, I’ll take the blame for that, " Dash says. “Def Jam or Universal bought the brand. I think the ‘beef’ [with us and Jay-Z] was that Jay made it clear he didn’t want me or Biggs to be a part of it. That’s really where it was at. Now that he doesn’t work for Def Jam anymore, he doesn’t have the right to use the name. So there’s no reason for us not to use it. It’s there, and it’s a brand that’s not being used. So I was like, ‘I’ll take it.’ It always meant something to me."
