Damon Dash disses Jay-Z
Damon Dash finally addresses his feud with former business partner Jay-Z in the latest issue of King magazine, branding the retired hip-hop star underhanded and manipulative. The pair, who were Roc-A-Fella Records partners before the company was sold to Def Jam in 2004, had a public fallout over the business deal. But Dash insists media reports detailing his vindictive behavior are totally untrue, labeling Jay -- who is now president of Def Jam Recordings -- the catalyst for the feud. "My best friend did some s--- to me that I never thought in a million years he would do," Dash told King. "It was straight war in there. Either you on Jay's side or Dame's side. The perception is that Def Jam bought Roc-A-Fella. Jay's the president of Def Jam... Remember they put in the paper that I lost my deal? That wasn't true. They tried to freeze my projects. We'd go to the office and they'd have my picture, saying not to let us in the building. I was painted as a violent guy." But despite all that, Dash said Jay is a good man "for the most part" and said what they accomplished together could never be taken away. "I don't respect what he did, but I'm not gonna let that wash away all the other stuff we did do." Latest news...
