Dame Dash says that a movie about Roc-A-Fella Records is in the works.
Dame knows that the Roc-A-Fella story is golden. The label birthed the careers of Jay Z and Kanye West, put Philadelphia street rap on the map with Beanie Sigel and State Property and it also introduced us to Dipset. But Dame says that the movie that he wants to make is not the one everyone may want to see.
“The movie I make is not going to be the movie that everyone is expecting,” he says. “It’s alot that people didn’t see and that would be the part that I’d be showing. Why would I make a recreation of what everyone saw?”
It sounds like Dame would rather offer a new perspective to the story rather than have actors play out what we already know about the label’s beginning, rise, reign, and fall. Which is great, but, he has to know that people would rather see a film about Jay Z, Kanye and company instead of Christion and Rell, right?
Hear Dame explain his vision below.
