Although Damon Dash refused to talk about his relationship with Jay Z earlier in the year, he opened up about his former business partner recently.
In an interview with Wiretapped, Dame questioned if he and Jay were ever friends at all, because when it came to Roc-A-Fella Records, Jay Z wouldn’t let him continue the brand.
“Roc-A-Fella was always available for me. But Jay made a point that I shouldn’t have it,” he explained. “And I was thinking at the time, it must have been because he wanted it. But, it couldn’t have been c;ause there’s no Roc-A-Fella no more. So, what was the purpose of it? So, I never really understood if Jay was ever really my friend. Like why he would do that to his man, pause. And he said it was business, but I didn’t see the business in it. Cause there’s no business in Roc-A-Fella anymore… I really thought we was friends. But I guess I got gaffled.”
Dame also discussed his relationship with Kanye West, saying the pair are on good terms and have plans to collaborate on a horror movie.
“We’re gonna do a horror flick,” he said. “He doesn’t like to do this announcing and all this stuff. But when he’s inspired, he can work with me anytime and in any way he wants as it relates to the movies. Fashion is a 24/7 thing. And he’s all in it. So, I feel like he’s more focused on that right now. And I’m more focused on what I’m doing. So, we’ll meet and have a common ground at some point. And we’ll come back and do something together.”
