Dame Dame Dash speaks on JAY-Z’s new NFL partnership.
JAY-Z’s recent alignment with the NFL
remains a hot topic. While the rap mogul still has believers
in his corner who wants us to trust the process, a large section of the hip hop and black community still maintain he’s a snake for choosing to partner with a league that has minimal respect for its black athletes.
According to Hov’s former business partner and co-founder of the now defunct Roc-A-fella Records, Dame Dash – Hip Hop’s first billionaire is not new to stabbing people in the back.
“I mean, everybody knows Jay ain’t shit,” Everyone knows that…Listen, if you ask anyone in the industry, it’s a common knowledge that Jay ain’t shit.” he told Adam22 on the No Jumper podcast. “He’s about the bag. We all know that. He’s self-preserving. Period. It’s just that the people he does it to don’t have Beyoncé next to ’em. They don’t have that kind of power.”
“He used to do that shit…it’s not even like a secret,” Dame continued with a blunt in hand. “He’d do that shit to me with girls. I’ll be talking to a chick and I’ll be like, ‘Yo, she asked me to do this, that and the third.’ And he’d be like, ‘I wouldn’t do it.’ And then the next day he’s done wifed her. And I’d be like, ‘Oh, that some funny shit.’ You know what you dealing with when you’re dealing with Jay. “

He concluded by saying: “I just think if you look under the hood, all the answers will reveal themselves.”

Earlier this week Bryan-Michael Cox, a close friend of Jermaine Dupri accused Jay of shady behavior. Cox claims Hov personally phoned Dupri less than a year ago to advise him to turn down a similar offer from the NFL.
“We’re also talking about a guy who single-handedly picked up the phone and called Jermaine to tell him not to do it,” Cox said of Jay’s new partnership. “When we all had that meeting with the NFL, all that shit was part of the same shit.”

“I’m not gonna condemn it and be like, ‘That shit’s wack,'” Cox added. “For me, I want to look at it intelligently because I know a lot of what was happening before and how we were engaged last year as a community […] At the end of the day, [Dupri] took a beating for doing the same shit. And I guarantee you they didn’t pay him as much as they’re about to pay [JAY].”
Jermaine Dupri has since come out deny claims that Jay discouraged him from partnering with the NFL. During a recent interview with Big Tigger on Atlanta’s V-103, the southern veteran said: “He and I never had a conversation where he told me, ‘don’t do what you’re doing.’ What our conversation was… ‘you know what side I’m on, I understand what you’re doing.’ That’s what the conversation was.”
JD’s new narrative contradicts what Flex initially revealed.
