Dame Dash Says Listening To Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" Is "Bittersweet"

Dame Dash listens to Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" years after their fallout.

A long time has passed since the days of Roc-A-Fella Records and Rocawear and a lot has changed.

Jay-Z recently released his newest album Magna Carta Holy Grail to critical acclaim and is one of the richest men in the music industry. Former business partner Dame Dash was recently hit with a $2.8 million tax lien and has been in debt by the millions for years. 

Aside from their fallout from years back Dame Dash has fallen on hard times, mostly financial so when it came time to listen to Jay's most recent release, it had to be difficult.

Dame recently posted a Vine of him listening to the album in the Lower East Side barbershop “Well Connected” and nodding his head. The caption of the post reads: "In the barber shop listening to jays new album….I can’t front… I still like hearing him pop shit cause I know he’s telling the truth…proud to be be a part of that..#bittersweet."

Dash and Jay-Z had a fallout over Roc-A-Fella records in 2004 after Jay became president of Def Jam Records. Dame has been in hot water with his finances since.

Recently, Dame Dash was hit with a tax lien totaling $2,802,262.30. The bill is in regards to years 2005 and 2011. He currently owes millions in back taxes to the State of NY and NJ and says he's lost multiple properties to foreclosure.

    Not sure if Dash has humbled up any from his life experiences but seeing that kind of debt makes me feel more at ease about my own life. my stuff is small potatoes compared to that.

    Jay Z was trying to get a deal for years before Reasonable Doubt and was even getting dropped from failed singles deals on minor labels. Dame was one of the few people in the world that believed in Jay Z before '96. He was broke back then to but pretty much made Jay Z's career through his efforts. Say what you will about Dash, then and now, but his role in creating jay z is well-documented.

      He was part of the blueprint, but not the talent. That's insane to assume he made Jay Z. When Jay started getting those sales, it was clear he was much bigger than Dash, and would go on to do bigger and better things.

    Dear Hov, Please bail me out of this rut. I can't even afford a happy meal at Mcdonalds. Things got so bad, the other day I tried robbing 7/Eleven, but the Hindu guy behind the counter said my gun didn't look real. It wasn't... I'm so bad at this. Talk to Beyonce for me and send some checks ASAP. I promise I'll pay you back in 10 years.

    I generally try to avoid albums by musicians I just can't stand, and Jay-Z ranks pretty high on that list. But when these people release an album that doubles as a "cultural event" then I'm compelled to throw in my two cents. Jay is a rapper who I've really grown to hate in the intervening years after Blueprint 3. It was just clear to me that he didn't care about the people who remember him from the Reasonable Doubt/Vol. 1 period (you could throw me into that category) and now caters to Coldplay fans. When he spoke out against Occupy Wall Street, I knew he was too far gone. This is a guy who conducts business deals on yachts during the week and then skis with Gwyneth Paltrow on the weekends. Yet he has the audacity to say he's in touch with the common man by invoking the 'duffle bag boy' imagery with absolutely no compunction. This album is yet another egregious entry into his parade of wealth. True to Jay's businessman style, he secured a deal with Samsung to move 1M units upon release. A major undercurrent throughout the proceedings is dispelling the Illuminati accusations that have dogged him these last few years, but it goes nowhere as the never ending litany of possessions occupy the bulk of the subject matter. Large swaths of the album contain his laziest rapping to date. Now, you could say that this is a result of him being a father but the ironic truth is that selling albums is probably his least lucrative business venture - and people were going to buy this regardless - so why try? If there's one positive I can say here, the production is not that bad. Timbaland really pulls out an impressive set here, probably his best in years. Adrian Younge shows up as co-producer for one spot, it's pretty obvious what his contribution to the track was. Pharrell continues his outstanding run this year with "Oceans" (man, I wish this was an instrumental). There is still a heaping helping of pop stuff, this is a 2013 rap album after all, but there were a surprising number of detours for those that pay more attention to the beats.

      Nobody believes you, dentalbitch. Rick Ross sucks. You're outta your mind and you're not an accountant for anyone.

    • dentaldamboy

      Rick Ross beats Gay Z on every level. Im not out of my mind. Im an accountant at ymcmb.

    • killa

      Now we all know ur out of ur mind

    • dentaldamboy

      Ross murders Gay Z. Gay Z is wack and is gay. Wayne is not gay. He only kisses Birdman because its a father son moment.

    • killa

      Now you know you're tripping when you say "except for rick ross" LMAO rick ross shouldnt even made it on the album, such a sick beat and the man didnt even flow.. he just rambles some useless trash

    • Maturesun

      That man is worth roughly 400 million plus some, what else do you expect him to talk about. You don't want him to invoke the "duffle bag boy" image but you don't want him to speak on his wealthy endeavors either. He came from being a "duffle bag boy" to making those deals on the yacht so to say that he can't bring that up when it was a part of his life is ridiculous. How much hustling do you really think Lil Wayne has done? He's been rich since he was a teenager. Rick Ross was a CO for Christ sake but he still talks the hustle game. Tyga claims a whole lot of things that also turned out to be not true. If a man has a legit hustle story then he can talk about it all day even after becoming successful and then he can talk about his success after that. One could easily judge your ability to even understand the subject matter that you loved on Reasonable Doubt by your grammar and vocabulary. If you don't like the subject matter that is one thing but to try and blast him for being successful and attack him for using pieces of his actual life and upbringing is another. He should be praised for being an incredible businessman and for still being relevant in an industry and especially the genre that tends to discard MC's after a certain age

    • dentaldamboy

      Im surprised that fake came up with good things to say. Except for rick ross, the album is wack ass pop with elementary school lyrics and reptetive subjects.

    • Funk-it

      Of course he cares about the people who followed him from beginning of his career. That album made him who he is today. If you really were a fan, would you having wanted him to remain stagnant and just made music for the underground heads or would you have wanted to see him succeed? He has to grow man. Thats like watching someone do a dead end job and saying that he should remain at that dead and job. I love the sound he had but that sound doesn't appeal to a broader audience. Never had and never will. He still keeps some of himself from the era in him but he has to cater to an audience that will buy into his brand. The reasonable doubt fans don't buy records, the coldplay fans do.Shit if took that album 7 years to go platinum. This is a business man. He worked hard from this moment. People have to progress in life man. If his success bothers you that much, maybe you need to work on yourself and get your life together and be happy with yourself. Obviously you aren't happy with the way your life is going and you feel the need to bring this man down to make you feel better.

    Problem with Dame is not being "broke".. its not being able to realize that your expenses exceed your income..kind of like most Americans, or the American Government... He had to see it and say hey, I no longer make that money...sell the 3rd house, sell the 5th car..sell the 6th condo...Just stupid.

      Every rapper ain't broke or living out of their means. And you're acting like it's easy to flip a house, condo, or car. You ain't speaking to them unemployed real estate agents and car salespeople. "The number of people with assets over $1 million filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization has jumped 73% over the past year, according to the private National Bankruptcy Research Center, Bloomberg reports here. So many million-dollar houses are on the market, and so few are buying them, that it would take nearly two years to sell them all, even if no new ones go up for sale, according to data from Zillow.com and the National Association of Realtors." ^ now what you talking about, besides what you saw in a movie or video?
