Dame Dash has once again aimed at JAY-Z, revealing insights into their early business dealings and throwing shade at Fat Joe in the process.

Responding to recent remarks by Fat Joe, where the rapper labeled Dash as "delusional" and challenged him to "make another one [JAY-Z]," Dash accused his former Roc-A-Fella Records partner of double-dipping.

In a recent episode of his America Nu Network podcast, Dash stated:

"“Number one. Make another HOV? Why the f*ck would I make another HOV? He was double dipping. We were paying him highly as an artist, and he was double-dipping from the company, and it didn’t make me a lot of money. He did not generate $100 million a year for me — I don’t want to make another HOV.""


Dash emphasized his contributions to other artists like Kanye West and Cam'ron, asserting that he didn't need to replicate Jay-Z's success. He pointed out that the following year, he started another company, Rachel Roy, which generated over $100 million annually.

However, Dash acknowledged the challenge of conveying his success in a different industry to those primarily focused on music.

"“But, because you don’t speak that language — most people don’t — and a lot of what you know is music, if I’m doing something in another language you don’t understand, it doesn’t resonate with you.”"


Last year, Dash faced legal issues over an alleged NFT auction of Jay-Z's 1996 debut, Reasonable Doubt. Although they settled, Dash expressed frustration over the situation, stating:

"“They took me to court saying I tried to sell all their interests, knowing I didn’t. I was only trying to sell mine, but they did that to f*ck my sale up… We don’t go to court. You call me, and then you wanna lie on me? That was last year. I’m bothered about it.”"


Dash, who previously expressed willingness for a sit-down with Jay-Z, outlined conditions for reconciliation, highlighting their complicated history.
