There are many things about Dame Dash that will earn him a spot in Hip-Hop’s collective memory. Namely, his work in building the Roc-A-Fella Records brand and the fall of that business relationship, and that the big part of Dame’s story that won’t be ignored: the beefs.
Even without taking his battles beyond words, they’re still pretty memorable — especially since the ex-label leader abides by a strict “no filter” policy.
After he and Jay Z went their separate ways in the mid-2000s it seems that Dash became the villain by default, and maybe that plays into why he’s so outspoken. The split of Roc La Familia, freed Dame in a way because he doesn’t have anything to lose anymore. He’s still running his own businesses (hear him elaborate on this interview with The Combat Jack Show), which means that he can pencil in as much time as he wants to go at people he disagrees with (i.e, Funkmaster Flex).
