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.
