Dame Dash Speaks On Jay Z’s Success And The People That Surround Him

Posted By on January 8, 2014

One time business partners with Jay Z and their Roc-a-fella brand, Dame Dash, recently spoke on his former partner’s huge success. According to reports, Dame Dash talks about Jay Z in an upcoming Details Magazine issue. Complex Magazine took a snippet from the interview.

In the snippet, Dash talks about his feelings towards Jay Z’s success and whether or not he feels like he has anything to do with it.

“‘I’m not counting that man’s money,’ he says. ‘No one’s taken anything from me. It’s like saying, “I used to mess with a girl, and before I used to mess with her, she was mediocre. But because she started messing with me, I taught her things. I dressed her, and then I taught her how to have a career.” Does that mean after we break up I’m still supposed to be able to get some ass?’ He laughs at his crass analogy. ‘Like, I don’t feel entitled to that pussy. You understand what I’m saying? I don’t feel entitled to nothing he’s got.'”

Dame Dash also spoke on the people in Jay Z’s inner circle and how he would never roll with some of the people that are associated with him.

“Dash says he was never cut out for that world—he wants to be a Richard Branson-type entrepreneur-cum-magnate, creating companies and then getting other people to run them. He also heaps scorn on the Def Jam team that would later become Jay Z’s inner circle. ‘Those people are corny. You think I’m rolling to a club with Lyor Cohen or John Meneilly?’ he says, referring to the former head of Island Def Jam and Jay’s manager. ‘No disrespect to Jay—but every single person I see hanging around him is making money off him. They all conform so they can eat off him.'”


About a month ago Jay and Dash were spotted with each other back stage at one of Jay’s shows. Dash took to his Instagram to post a photo of him and his daughter posted up with Hov. Check out the photo below.
