Damon Dash – the Hip Hop mogul who co-founded the defunct Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z – has made no secret of his disdain for the ‘Big Pimpin’ performer since their joint business ventures failed.
But, just in case you forgot, Dash reiterated said distaste recently when he was quizzed on this thoughts about Jay’s recently unveiled dealings with the NFL. The controversy around the deal not only stems from the league’s heavily reported mistreatment of players of colors (and disregard for issues important to them), but Jay’s longstanding public slamming of the organization. His change of tune certainly hit a sour note with Dash who, during a recent interview, said the Roc Nation leader was a backstabber and ultimately wasn’t ‘sh*t’ for making the move.
Harsh words. Hear what else he said inside:

“If you ask anyone in the industry, it’s common knowledge that JAY ain’t shit,” he said. “He’s about the bag. We all know that. He’s self-preserving, period. It’s just that the people he does it to don’t have Beyoncé next to him, they don’t have that kind of power.”
Weighing on reports Jay-Z told Jermaine Dupri to decline a deal with the NFL that he would later accept, Dash said:
“It’s not even a secret. He do that shit to me with girls,” said Dame. “I’ll be talking to a chick and I’ll be like, ‘Yo, she asked me to do this that and the third.’ And he’ll be like, ‘I wouldn’t do it.’ And then the next day he’s wifed her.”
Wrapping up, Dash said:
“There’s always been a pattern with that dude. Everyone always forgives him,” he added. “He’s like Trump in that way. He could do anything, say anything, and everyone goes with the populist sometimes.”
