(AllHipHop News) Dame Dash sat down for interview to discuss his recent social media riff with Jim Jones. During the Q&A, Dame expressed whatever it was that sparked Jim to call him a culture vulture, s###, and punk is “family business.”
He also shares his belief that other people will “put a battery” in someone’s back for their own personal agenda.
“He’s my brother, and I don’t know why on any level why someone would disrespect me,” said Dame. “What it’s really about is in business, when it comes to Black people when they do business together, it doesn’t matter how much good stuff you do, if one thing is percieved as bad, it might even be misuderstood – Black people get very reactive instead of just talking it through.”
Dash adds that he has no problems with his longtime friend Jones, and he wishes that any person that has issues with him, including Curren$y and Beanie Sigel, would just come and talk to him about it.
The Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder says artists need to work together against the agenda of lawyers and other people he feels are trying to take advantage of creative individuals.
“I would be alright having a conversation with anyone that says that I owe them money. Just as long as it’s a civil conversation,” states Dame. “My intent is to never do bad business. My books are always open. I make people rich. That’s what I do.”
Dash goes on to suggest that representatives of Hip Hop need to stop disrespecting each other if they expect people outside the culture not to disrespect its artists. He calls on rappers to use OGs and mediators to help settle beefs so the culture will, as he puts it, stop looking crazy.
The Harlem mogul ends the interview promoting intelligence and peace over unnecessary violence.
