Question Of The Day: Can Damon Dash Make a Comeback?

We all know that Damon Dash has been going “through it” for the past few years. After losing damn near everything, the real question is will he be able to make it through all of this turmoil and get back on top?

Former rap mogul and emperor of bling Damon Dash may soon have a new moniker: turnaround king. The question on the minds of hip hop cognoscenti, the glitterati and reporters alike is whether Dash, who co-founded the twin cash cows of rap music and fashion, Roc-A-Fella Records and Rocawear, will earn the dubious distinction of actually living a “hard knock life” after having earned a fortune for producing a smash record of the same name.

The mogul, once one of the ten richest and most powerful men in hip-hop, is now reportedly broke. He lost his home, and a Manhattan judge even ordered the city to seize his SUV because he couldn’t afford his monthly car note.

However, some observers vouch for his ability to stage a comeback. “At the end of the day, he’s an entrepreneur,” says Lola Ogunnaike, a journalist who wrote for Vibe and Rolling Stone magazines and who was the top culture reporter for The New York Times. “He’s not necessarily a music man; he’s a businessman, and wherever there’s a check to be made, he’s going to look into it.”

    Good for him & wonder what his comeback move will be?

  • NUVO

    I DONT THINK NO ONE IS THINKING OF DAME.. WHO KNEW HE WAS RE-LATED TO STACEY DASH… TALK ABOUT SMALL WORLD

  • Yuh dun Know.....

    Doing what??

    He’s too old to do much of anything else. He should just concentrate on being a good father and maybe finding another venue for making money.

    He needs to NOT do anything pertaining to music.

  • DreTruth

    I think of you dame – shawn didn’t make it by himself – you and biggs help the camel to maintain in the desert – so I say do you and get that geeky swag together.

  • PraDaMaMa

    EXACTLY…..DOn WHAT???

  • Nique (Bossip...Bullsh!!t without Shame)

    With his attitude-I dont think so.

    Karma is a m*utha-I guess it caught up

  • NATI GIRL

  • juliemango

    “…wherever there is a check to he’s gonna look into it”. People wanna make $$$$ ahd they wanna work>demands there!!!

  • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983. 29 Days. DAXN, Y'ALL SOME FICKLE AZZ PEOPLE!!

    @ Nique that is what it is.

    He needs to change that attitude if he is going to make it anywhere.

    UUUGGGGHHH I cannot stand him! He didn’t do anything personally to me but it so feels like he did!

    what goes around comes around. Dame is a D-I-C-K! he picked on a lots of people. you do dirt you get dirt. point blank. even if he comes back his ego is so huge it will crash him right back down. there is a difference b/n ego and confidence. This guy has sickining ego. He needs to go to University of humbleness!!

  • Mystic Jewelz

    I doubt it. Now he needs to focus on his children.

    “…wherever there’s a check to be made, he’s going to look into it.”

    Uh, yeah. Just like I or any other logical person would do. Good luck brah.

  • Miami chick

    If he doesn’t get black-balled by Jay Z and his Jewish colleagues, he has a chance.

    I’m digging Dame’s new artist Currensy, his rhymes have a 90’s feel-good vibe, and I think a lot of people miss that about hip-hop. Let’s not forget no one would even know who Jay Z is, if it wasn’t for Dame.

  • Nique (Bossip...Bullsh!!t without Shame)

    @IJM

    I hear u. What did it for me was the show on BET-forgot the name

  • foxxy cleopatra foster

    Dame is doin his own thing now. He’ll be fine.

  • RazeKane

    Damon gotta understand one of the reasons jay stayed on top and continues to rake is more moguls wanted to work with jay. Its WHO WANTS YOU, not who do you want. So, I don’t see damon achieving success again because he burnt to many bridges behind him.

  • CAT EYES

    thats funny–him and his cousin Stacey trying to make comebacks at the same time….

    However,I think Damon could make it—I remember listening to his story at the Learning Annex and he actually used his welfare check payments to make himself millions the first time,so at least i know he has the head for business,just lose a little of that ego and he’ll be fine.

  • HBG WordDiva

    Anyone can make a comeback…I’m all for it! He just needs the right ppl in his corner and lose the ‘tude!

  • SoSmoove

    The comeback has started with Curren$y and the other artist that are on deck reading to explode…go to youtube and checkout Curren$y he is the truth

  • deedee

    I am sorry but if anyone knows hip hop they know dame was everything behind rocafella he signed almost all the artists on the label and took a chance on a lot of people gay z did him dirty and he ran into hard times I will listen to his new artists nipsey hussle and currensy dame is a smart enterpeneur and will continue to do well shake these dumb a@@ haters dame bring that good music we want to hear

  • chocalatetunda01

    he just got a attitude problem like a bytch. fix it and then you may be on to something. In the words of puffy “Bytchazzness is a epidemic”

  • that damn sh#$ disturber
