Jay-Z Credits Dame Dash For Rocawear Success

Posted By on November 30, 2009

    Jay-Z recently talked about the success of his Rocawear clothing line, even crediting his former Roc associate Damon "Dame" Dash for building such a great foundation for the company. Dash, who first set up the groundwork for the clothing company in 1999, gets credit from Jigga for taking the brand to a new level. "Dame did a great job when he was here," Hov said in a new interview. "I just feel that I have a different way of running things, which I think is working out well. I let people make mistakes, and push them to be creative. I let a design team design. When they feel good about something they have created, it makes them want to do more. It makes them want to do their best. People are happy here."

    HOV then continued by explaining his situation at the company and what the goals are for it. "I'm not a controlling manager and I have a great team that makes me confident that things can run well when I'm on the road, and I'm proud of that…Our goal is to make Rocawear a $1 billion company," he said. "It may take us more time than we would like since the economy is in the shape that it's in, but I'm confident that we will get there." [Rocawear – 10 Anniversary Commercial – Watch Here]
