Despite past differences, Jay-Z and Damon Dash both set to appear 

It’s clear that hip hop mogul Damon Dash, and hip hop mogul Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter no longer “kick it.” But in a couple weeks, both men are promised to show up for the one-day, sixth annual “Wrap To Rap” charity event. 

The event will focus on providing gifts for kids in foster homes in the New York City area. The maestro will be DJ D-Nice, there will be a performance by Sean Kingston, and Damon Dash’s wife, designer Rachel Roy, will host it. Kevin Liles will also be present. 

In the September issue of VIBE, Jay-Z spoke candidly about the break-up of Roc-A-Fella Records and his strained relationship with his former business partner and sidekick, Damon Dash. 

“That was the biggest tragedy for me,” he told writer Elliott Wilson. “In concept, [Roc-A-Fella] was the perfect thing. But sometimes life gets in the way…I’ve never said this before, but any second-guessing [about severing ties with Dash] went away when Dame was participating in the whole beef [with Cam’Ron]…I’m not going to do certain things or say certain things about Dame… I’m not going to go too far.” 

“Wrap To Rap” will be Wednesday, November 19 at the Empire Hotel Rooftop in New York.
