What the hell has Dame Dash been up to? You’ll find out in the upcoming February issue of Details magazine. The mogul sat down with the mag to speak on his new ventures and, of course, Jay Z. Because that’s the bait needed to reel the majority into caring about Dame Dash.
Check out an excerpt where Dame speaks on his friend’s (*crosses fingers*) current success:
“‘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 p*ssy. You understand what I’m saying? I don’t feel entitled to nothing he’s got.’”
And it’s safe to say he and Lyor Cohen, who Dame suggested in 2009 “influenced” Roc-A-Fella’s 2005 break up, still haven’t made up. The Harlemite throws shots towards the record exec and other people that he feels are making money off Jay.
“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.’”
Well, that’s going to make the next meeting super awkward.
