Dame Dash Credits Jay Z For Helping Him Look Cool In Front Of His Daughter

Dame Dash says he'll only work with game changers who are capable of making history.

As a result of the fallout between Dame Dash and Jay Z, the relationship between the two Roc-A-Fella Records co-founders appeared null up until last year when the pair was pictured together at a birthday party held for a mutual friend.

In addition to the birthday party, Dame, along with his daughter Ava Dash, was also one of a number of celebrities present at Jay Z’s Magna Carta World Tour stop in Los Angeles last December. During the show, Jay shouted out Dame’s daughter, and according to Dame, it was a moment that solidified the reason why he chose to partner with the Brooklyn rapper.

“When Jay gave my daughter a shout out, that was all that I ever was in business with Jay for,” Dame Dash said while speaking with Revolt TV. “You know what I’m saying? Like that was it…That was the thing. That my daughter got to get the shout out from the biggest rap star on the planet and go to school with that. You know what I’m saying? And that she was able to be treated with that much respect. And watch her father have so much fun around people that affect pop culture every day. That her friends in school know that I had a part of that. So, that’s all I really wanna do is look cool in front of my children, to be honest. That’s it. I don’t care about what anybody thinks, but them.”

Prior to speaking on Jay Z’s shout out to his daughter, Dame spoke on his work ethic and his desire to only work with artists who are capable of being game changers.

“That goes without saying if I’m getting with you is that you gonna be a game changer,” he said. “Like I don't really just get with you if I don’t think that you’re not gonna change history. What’s the purpose of doing it? That’s not the game I’m playing. It’s not my business model. Like I’m not trying to get a record deal and I’m not trying to sell records. I’m trying to make history. And as much of it as I can in a world where usually the management or the [administrators] are usually robbing the artist and the artist ends up broke. And the management ends up rich. It seems to be the other way around. So, that must mean I must be really honest or something…So, I take pride in not only what I’ve done, but the way I’ve done it. And also the results.”

While Dame has occasionally touched on his relationship with Jay Z following their fallout, Jay offered a rare peek into his thoughts on Dame during an interview with Hot 97 last July. The Roc Nation founder revealed that he still has love for Dame regardless of what happened in the past.

"What we built, you can't take that away," Jay said. "No matter what, no time or space. No matter how many years I ain't seen him, the love is still there because what we've done will forever be stamped in history. We created something that's going to go down forever. I can only have love for Damon."

    All these socalled Jay z fans jumping on websites with their keyboards dissin Dame Dash calling him too broke to give business advice, or any kind of advice? you must crazy. I couldn't think of many a individual qualified enough to tell about the ups and downs of the industry or the do's and don'ts, after all the man has truly lived it to the fullest and help put Jay in a position of success where he's been able to solidify himself as a pop icon. So if rap hasn't helped you to be able to relate some what to the struggle then why listen.

  • Nights like this I wish rain drops lol

      Is Jay supposed to tie Dame's shoes, and wipe his nose for him? It's his responsibility to get his life together.
