Damon Dash Talks Jay Z + Solange Fight, Disses Steve Stoute
Former rap mogul Damon Dash clearly isn’t the quiet type, and doesn’t have a problem speaking his mind. During his interview with Hip-Hop Motivation, the Harlem native talked about everything from his past accomplishments, to Steve Stoute, to the infamous Jay Z and Solange elevator fight.
“I was laughing. The s— was funny,” he said. “I wouldn’t of handled it like that, but I just thought it was funny, cause, you know, Jay is the kind of guy that you don’t see him move like that. And when he does move, if ain’t that cool looking, then it’s going to be kicks.”
Dash also said he’s angry by the lack of unity among certain black business people. The Roc-a-Fella Records co-founder revealed that he tried many times to work with other music moguls to make a unified pact but to no avail.
In addition, he threw some verbal darts at former record executive Steve Stoute by calling him a “culture robber.”
“Black people never help each other. We never stick together,” Dash theorized. “We are the most retarded culture in the world for that. For some reason when black people get something, they think they can’t share with other black people, because that other black person is going to take it from them.”
“[Steve Stoute], he always break us up so he can bring us to get robbed,” he continued. “A guy like Steve Stoute will always take the people that are protecting the creative, and eliminate them so he can rob the creative. Just so he can get his money.”
Dash also said Stoute watered down the public images of Jay Z and Mary J. Blige, and made lots of money doing it.
It’s evident that Dash has a lot on his mind these days, and one could even say there’s a tone of resentment in some of his views. To watch his entire interview session watch the clips below:
