Although Dame Dash didn’t call out anyone by name weeks ago when he expressed his disappointment at those who have not supported fellow Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke during his incarceration, the rap entrepreneur did recently reveal that Kanye West is one artist who has not shown support for Biggs.
Dame called out Kanye during a newly-published interview on Shade 45’s VIP Saturdays. He revealed that he’s “a little tight with Kanye” since he hasn’t reached out to Biggs or checked in on Biggs’ family.
Additionally, Dame dismissed Kanye’s various complaints about brands and other topics as being “irrelevant.”
“Kanye didn’t have the survival skills that he has to have,” he said. “Kanye’s built completely different than everyone in Roc-A-Fella. Also, I’m a little tight with Kanye cause he hasn’t reached out to Biggs. I don’t like that shit. So, Kanye holler at me. I don’t like that. It’s terrible…Biggs was the one that really was like ‘Yo Dame, pay attention to what Kanye’s doing. Make sure you send him that music.’ You know what I mean? So, it’s just not—No one’s reaching back. And I just—Certain niggas have. And that’s why I’m not calling everybody up, but Kanye hasn’t. And he hasn’t checked on his kid. He hasn’t checked on his family. No trial, none of that. And the shit I’m hearing him complain about is irrelevant. Based on the fact that he doesn’t look back to the people that helped him…I gotta have a conversation with him.”
In May of this year, Dame spoke on the currently incarcerated Biggs during an appearance on MTV’s “RapFix Live” and revealed that he’s “not too satisfied with the support of other people that he’s [Biggs] looked out for over the years.”
During his interview on VIP Saturdays, Dame later spoke on the various projects he’s working on, which includes movies with Cam’ron and Pusha T as well as his Poppington clothing line.
“I’m about to direct a movie with Cam for Percentage. I’m about to do a movie with Pusha T with Snitch…I’m about to really get my creative on right now. That’s what I’m about. And then the Poppington clothes. That’s my cut-and-sew,” Dame said.
