Dame Dash Settles Bootlegging Charges

Posted By on September 16, 2011

     Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon Dash recently cleaned up his 'bootlegging' charges. Dash had his DD172 establishment hit with a restraining order for selling and distributing alcohol without a permit but a Lower Manhattan juge agreed to settle the order today.

Dash’s lawyer Joshua Seidman told us that the city had never served his client any papers and that “selling liquor was never a part of the business model of that location.” (Two police documents from April and May obtained by the Voice list Dash by name on reports of an illegal bottle club/alcohol warehousing.) Seidman added that “the company hasn’t operated out of that premises since the beginning of summer.”
