DASH STILL SHOCKED BY JAY-Z ROC-A-FELLA TAKEOVER

Source:SOHH

 


Rap mogul DAMON DASH is still trying to come to terms with his apparent split from longtime business partner JAY-Z.

The retired rap star recently surprised Dash by taking back their ROC-A-FELLA name after pal ANTONIO 'LA' REID bought Damon's interest in the company and handed it over to Jay-Z when the rap icon took over as president of DEF JAM earlier this year (05).

The move effectively gives Jay-Z full control over the company he once ran with Dash and fellow partner KAREEM BURKE. And that sits awkwardly with Dash.

He says, "I was shocked at the Roc-A-Fella s**t. Shocked. I'm sure in his heart it sits well, but it didn't make sense to me.

"I was like, 'It's aight (corr) to go do your own thing, but I don't agree with the fact that they offered you the name to keep.' And he was like, 'They bought it, they could do what they want with it.'

"I don't understand what's going on with Jay... I never understood it. Me and this n**ga never had an argument, ever! Not one. We never had no animosity, nothing. I just never got it.

"I mean, we still got business together. Like, I went to his birthday party. He came to my daughter's birthday."
