Damon Dash speaking to AHH:
I’ll tell you what I mean by tension. I wasn’t anticipating not having Roc-A-Fella Records. Jay was presented with a choice of going and doing what he wanted to do by himself, which was cool with me. But he came back with “I want to do my own thing, but I also want the brand and Idon’t want Jay, Damon and Biggs now.” That one threw me off because I wasn’t expecting that.
AllHipHop.com: Was that just a straight show of disloyalty?
Dame Dash: Well you can call it how you see it.
Jay’s a Black man, an African-American, and I wish any African-American good luck. It’s not diplomacy, it’s about the fact that as a culture, we don’t stick together, and that’s the problem. So even if somebody’s scumbagging me, I’m not gonna scumbag them back. I want that dude to be successful so that he can be another ambassador of our community, so that people can say “Oh, a Black kid did his thing.”
