Financial Turmoil

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Bossip recently interviewed Damon Dash were he discussed his paper situation. Although Dash said his finances are fine, the New York Post says something different:

The records show that hip-hop mogul Damon Dash – whose estimated $50 million fortune bought him a chauffeur-driven $400,000 Maybach sedan, diamond-encrusted watches and more than 1,000 pairs of sneakers – owes the state more than $2 million.

Dash, 36, is one of almost 225,000 city debtors who together have shortchanged the city and state more than $1 billion in income taxes, penalties and interest, the records show.

Dame better pay up, SMH. Cicely Tyson and Ben Vereen are on the list as well.

    Go ahead Dame and stick it to the middle class by not paying your damn taxes. The working middle class pays more taxes than anybody and every time these millionaires don’t pay their taxes they stick it to us even more trying to make up the difference.

    We would all be in jail right now not paying our taxes.

    These so-called business men/women in Hip Hop were never really business people. Basically, they just jumped on the Hip Hop jugernaut where business deals were flying everywhere. At one point just about any have way hot rapper could put out a clothing line and call him/herself a designer. Just about any rapper could put out a sneeker and call themself an entrepenure.

    Hip Hop was just hot and people were making money who werern’t really business trained. These guys never even graduated from high school.

    Now that Hip Hop is not as hot, “the chickens have come home to roost.” Now these guys really have to be business savy in order to hold on to their fortunes.

    A lot of these guys are going to go broke as the goose (Hip Hop) that laid the golden egg (people stacking cheese everywhere) is dead (records sales are in the toilet).

  • jazzyphile

    Corporation may get away without paying taxes. Believe me, the IRS will eventually catch up with these entertainer types and breakem’ down like salt on a snail. Can I say: Red Toxx, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peabo Bryson, Ronald Isley, etc.

    Does anyone live in New York here? Think New York will make Jeter pay 10 million dollars in taxes? A lot of people i talk to said New York tax office is being unfair to Jeter and he should not have to pay because he plays for the Yankees and he’s perfect. I guess only the poor need to pay taxes and not Derek Jeter. I live in Atlanta just wondering if anyone else know about this.
