Dame Dash is a profile subject in the upcoming February issue of Details Magazine. The feature is part primer on the development of Jay Z and the Roc-A-Fella and Rocawear brands and part glimpse into Dash 2.0, a man interested in working in a hyper-creative environment with like-minded, anti-corporate artists and product-developers.
“‘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 an**ogy. ‘Like, I don’t feel enti*led to that Pu$$y. You understand what I’m saying? I don’t feel enti*led to nothing he’s got.”’
“Dash says he was never cut out for that world—he wants to be a Richard Branson-type entrepreneur-cu*-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.’”
Lets keep it 100. Jay-Z seen that having a all black company was going to make him so much money. He sold out Dame and went to work with the white guys. Dame still feels some type of way.
