Months after YDB, son of the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard, stated that he was looking for Dame Dash and wanted the Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder to return his father’s masters, Dame has spoken out on the matter.
According to the rap entrepreneur, he does not have ODB’s masters and has been in court with the late rapper’s lawyer, Scott [Kessler] over the matter. He also accused Kessler of robbing ODB’s family. Dame mentioned Kessler while discussing the numerous lawsuits he has filed against others, lawsuits he says the media never reports on.
“How many times is it ever in the newspaper that I’m fighting? It’s never in the newspaper that I have a lawsuit against somebody…The world doesn’t know about my lawsuits against Barry Klarberg for three years,” Dame said during an interview with Hip Hop Motivations. “They don’t know about that. And they don’t know about how we’re fighting Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s lawyer because he doesn’t know what he’s doing. And he got that kid thinking that I got his masters. Like it’s retarded what Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s lawyer’s doing…They wouldn’t even let me in cause I was flipping on him so hard. Cause I was like ‘Yo, why are you robbing that family? You know you robbing that family’…Scott [Kessler] is robbing Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s family.”
Dame also took aim at former Hip Hop music attorney and radio host, Combat Jack. He says his issue with Combat Jack stems from the former lawyer allegedly filling out contracts incorrectly.
“But, you know, I remember why I stopped f*cking with him as a lawyer in the first place,” he said. “It was cause he made the contracts where I was robbing Ski and everybody for they publishing. You know what I mean? I was like ‘Yo, I said I’m not taking they publishing.’ And I gave it back. And I did that. And that was what Combat Jack—That was my issue with Reggie Ossé. I was like ‘Yo, you got me robbing kids.'”
In regards to his recent request to speak with music industry executive Lyor Cohen, who Dame says is molesting the culture, he says he has yet to hear from Cohen.
“Also, nobody’s hollering at me still,” Dame said. “Like I still don’t hear no explanations. Lyor’s not saying nothing. And I’mma keep on until you talk to me, Lyor. You have to explain yourself. It is what it is, man. I have questions. I wanna know and I don’t want it to be emotional. I want it to be honest. I want people to witness it. I want to understand the things he’s done and his perspective…I just don’t agree with it. It’s almost like if somebody molested some children regardless to what—they human. So, now that’s the human race. You now disrespect the children. I’m not gon’ just let it happen on my watch. And the way I look at it is Lyor has molested our culture.”
During an interview with Vlad TV, which was published weeks ago, Dame spoke on the origins of his beef with Cohen and revealed that the record exec “ruined Roc-A-Fella.”
“My beef was with Lyor cause I think he’s a fake CEO,” he said. “And I think he’s fronting on my culture, but he can’t front on anybody else. And I’m calling him out publicly. And I want him to stop trying to rape my culture… He’s the one that ruined Roc-A-Fella. Lyor Cohen.”
I don’t know why Dame thought that Roc-A-Fella would become a multi-billion dollar label without the white devil trying to sabotage it. The f*cked up thing about this is that Dame is 100% right about the situation,but no one will defend him because of his asshole ways.He burned too many bridges already.
@Anon 0:658, ita
Dame is quite a man, isn’t he. My respect for him keeps incteasing because unlike some of these puppets he seems unafraid to call it as he sees it.
Never heard of this Kessler guy.I dont know why we as black people expect better from our own. Black executives and lawyers can be just as cut throat as their white counterparts.
Sometimes even worse!
DONT FALL FOR NONE OF THAT BULLSHIT HE SAYING HE GOT IT AND I BELIEVE ODB WAS HIS SACRIFICE,… WU GAVE UP ODB …HE WAS THE ODB AS YOU CAN SEE FBI DONT YOU BE WATCHING ME ,.HEY DIRTY DAME ,.. DAME YOU GOT HIS MONEY KID DONT WORRY !!
Dame “sacrificed” Aaliyah AND Dirty, yet his whole life lies in tatters?
Maybe the whole “sacrifice your way to success” concept needs to be reconsidered.
HE LIVED THE GOOD LIFE FOR A LIL BIT ,…THEY NEED SOMEONE CLOSER LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER ,..THOSE WHERE GETTING BY SACRIFICES NOTHING MAJOR !
Murder two people just to get by? He’s been bankrupt like 5 times.
YEAH FROM WHAT THEY TOLD YA OR WHAT MEDIA TELLS YOU ,..THAT NIGGA SET !
People just dont stand for much in these days and times n i kno alot of yal gon get on here n say now he broke he wanna do sumn. That’s not the case where Dame is at now is where he tried to go years ago til Jay told that Dame J Prince Irv Gotti n some1 else was tryna get the first all black record company with all black distributions cutting whitety out on all business n monies. Jay Z went from field nigga to house nigga to massa right hand nigga by selling Dame n others out. What happn next they all crumble while Jay prevails. He gets the media to spin everything bout Dame like he wasnt a team player. Steal his artist with the promise of them blowin up, but in all actuality Jay usin anything n everything anyone n everyone to praise him as the best MTV BET all the radio stations are now on payroll. He’s made out to be the best n we forget all bout the other rappers State Property Dipset Dmx Red n Meth Nas Twista etc etc all those rappers were put on shelves or made to look bad with media spin IF they had a loyal fan base like Nas or X then they ran u down n the media. I think Dame had to plan plot strategize. Meaning waitin for Jay to fall from grace like he has nobody is blinded by his cutthroat ways like b4. Mature like finding a serene place in life that will get ur mind right as well as ur heart to live n let live, which had to b hard really cuz Dame fought hard for Rocafella. Exposing the real enemy (cuz Jay isnt nothing more than a puppet on the string) which is the Lyor Cohens. I think Dame had to do alot of soul searching n when ur down only thing u can do is get up. Im not one whose gonna knock him cuz ive been exactly where he is, nowhere near millions, but put a nigga on partied lived the life together same person set me up to b robbed by niggaz who didn look at for him when he wasnt eatin, and got with ex girl while I was locked down. Tables turn tho he’s usin im still eatin legally.
I feel u my brother. Ive been there too, and Im happy just to be alive
What pofith a man to gain the whole world but loseth his soul
meant * profit*
Motown and a couple of lessor known labels have already done that, fact checking is key here. Secondly, you Negros get on my damn nerves,had this been 1995-2002,he would be called a sell-out and everything but a child of GOD! Now that’s he burned all his bridges and is basically running around talking out the ass,because his ego won’t let him fade out of the limelight, it’s now woe is he,I feel so bad for him.
Blacks are literally the only race to sit and hate on each other when they come up financially. They make up stories about each other being gay,devil worshipers, and everything under the sun.
Blogs like this is the reason we will always be divided.
How is he hating on the lawyer? Mishandling someone’s financials is not a coe up , its a crime. And why would Dame ever be considered a sell out? And you are dead wrong of you think only black people hate other black people for making it. Google the Winklevoss twinss and see how they feel about Mark Zukescome up
That was sure night,j prince and irv
Preach! There’s a vast amount of people with FUNCTIONAL cerebral cortex that know that Jay-Z&his succubus are:demonic, backstabbing,payola – prevailing phonies& media – meddling crooks who won’t stop til’ they’re canonized as Father God& Mother Mary (more like Lucifer & Lilith)themselves! Wicked tag – team alongside the coven(The Obamas, KKKanye/Kimupster& the assorted – like)are at it people better wake-up! Dame Dash roamed with these snakes& for his own good he’ll sow seeds that enlighten.
Not surprised..so called Jews are thieving Germans in disguise..expose the shit dame
Not true. Many are Russian, Polish, Dutch and Belgian as well. Expose the Jews? Expose what? Is there any living soul outside of the Brazilian rainforests who doesn’t know that the Jhews have been gettin’ it done forever?
9:04 is correct. The majority of jooss today, no matter where they live, look like or are from, are descendents of renaissance era Ashkenazi people.You can tell by the spelling if the word they are German. Doesn’t the suffix “Nazi.” give it away. This means that they are not the originals Israelites , they are originally a Germanic cult that simply adopted the religion for political reasons. Science confirms this. Don’t take my word for it. Do you own research and you will see that most jooss today descend from 4 German women. Because in their religion supposedly the bloodline/faith passes down from the mother, according to their own beliefs they are imposters. They themselves save your mother has to be joo ish, in order for the kids to be. Isn’t that ironic? Real talk. Look it up. You’ll see…
I forgot where I saw it on YT but James Brown and somebody else was going to do the exact thing what Dame and Jay was going to do. The problem was Dame was messing with Aaliyah, but its Jay fault he should have stepped up to Aaliyah and confessed how he felt for her. See how the tables turned? Jay don’t give a f*ck and Same is still trying to figure out and make things right. Its hard to do that when you cut throat somebody and U end up getting slashed yourself.
It was Dame, Irv Gotti,J Prince, and Suge Knight that were going to do the distribution deal and of course Jay Z ran over like the snitch that he is and told whitey.
No 9:34 It was James Brown and Otis Redding. That’s who it was! This was started before Irv,J. Prince and the rest of the gang.
f*ck dash he just running off @ mouth like da rest of those mofo if his azz was up on his game he would b just like da rest of da sell out dat azz is broke now want talk shidd
Contracts are binding.
Agreed, the art of business and ironic for the founder of Wu to enter such a deal. For some reason I cannot shake my head of the video from my youth of odb riding to the social services office in a limo with champagne to receive residual welfare benefits. Also bragged about catching stds. Then I learned that Rusty came from a nuclear middle class military family with a dad, teacher mom and brother in the navy, pretending like he was from projects. With all that said my empathy goes out to children of pakistan, sudan, and the mexican border whose parents give more fks about their childrens’ future than party and bs. Dame is aging like spoiled milk and resembles a great uncle. Years of Armadale vodka coupled with glucophage are catching up him.
I swear to gawd when I peeped that pic up top I thought, “Dame looks like every old man at the family reunion sitting in his lawn chair spouting his own special brand of BS about what’s wrong with kids today”…so I’m glad I’m not the only one who sees that he’s not aging well.
yep white calf socks black sandals/shower shoes straw hat and all.
The first thing I thought of was ODB in that limo going to social services as well- will never forget that, lol!
Didn’t the gf/wf/cm go to jail behind that??
I dont know I should hope so since they were defrauding the government. Just remember his ex and his mom suing over his estate some years back.
Pakistan = palestine
Dame in that pic I thought that was too short lmao oh damn
@ glance I thought that was too short
First, wasn’t dude just on combat jack show talking SHYT about everyone else but him? He was kissing his ass, but clownin lyor, jay, and Steve stout. So why now does he wanna say combat did stuff with contracts? Even beans called him out in a interview, and said dame was spending his advance from state property, and lying about it to him. Blaming the distribution compaNY about the check and he found out they been gave him money and he spent it on trips, and all types of shyt and writing it off as expenses. So this nigga is a real culture vulture, stealing from his own people! Ya’ll must be old ass hell on this blog because y’all don’t know shyt until Jacky exaggerates the truth.
Ok that what goes back to what I just said in my earlier post. Jay sold out because of Aaliyah and Dame knew it and in the end Dame got cutthroat. Dame knew Jay loved Aaliyah but he had to have her. So instead of Jay get Same right then and there, he waited for the right time to do it. And damb if he didn’t do it. He got Dame ass good.
If you are right, and you very well may be, that puts EVERYTHING in perspective at last. It also proves that Jay Z is smarter than we give him credit for. Most dudes would have settled for seeing the man who stole his girl get shot dead.
Jay wanted him to truly suffer a fate worse than death which is to live w/o major bank after you have become accustomed to having no limits to your spending.
Now back in the day, Dame would have gotten shot cause of this. Plus, he wanna moved up in the circle. Hell Dame might as well give up and kill himself. But,he might have a slim chance if he play his cards right without renigging.
dame, puffy and lyor all repped the same devil.
lyor doesn’t care about dame hes just another white man who got rich off hip hop.
dame, jay, and the roc made millions and lyor made billions off def jam including dame.
if dame gonna blast lyor he might as well blast the other white controlled ceos and record labels.
lyor made his money he ‘s not thinking about dame.
Dame has done a lot dirt but I do believe he is trying to right his wrongs. The fall is hard
HE NOT RIGHTING SHIT HE WORK FOR THEM SAME DEVILS THATZ SHITTING ON HIM HE BEING BLK BALLED AND NOW HE WORKING PRO …NOT CON ANYMORE …SEE THEY HAVE BOTH SIDES COVERED,… HE NOT BROKE AND HE HAS AN STELLAR AWARDS WAITING IN THE WINGS! ..CUZ HE WOULDA OUTTED JAY LONG TIME AGO THEY ALL THIS ALL THEATRICS PLAYING ON YOU,…..AND YOU POOR GOYIM MINDS AND EMOTIONS!!!
I MEANT THIS IS NO MORE THAN THEATRICS & PROPAGANDA, DONT PAY THIS FAGGOT NO MIND CUZ HE DID WRONG IN MASSA EYES & JAY SNITCHED …SO WHY DO YOU LOVE A BIG LIPPED SNITCHING CAMEL GOD IS BEYOND ME !
DAME ALWAYS BEEN OUTSPOKEN AGAINST BULLSHIT THAT DEFJAM AND ANYBODY ELSE WHO WAS TRYING TO SHORTCUT OR TRY ANY TRICKERY AGAINST THE ROC.
EVERYBODY DOES NOT WORK WITH DOES WHITE FOLKS LIKE THAT…SOME JUST PLAY THERE BULLSHIT GAME TO GET WHAT THEY NEED..IF DAME WAS ONE WITH THEM OR A PUPPET HE WOULD NOT IN NO WAY BRINGING THIS OUT LIKE THAT.U SEE WHAT JAY IS DOING EXACTLY NOTHING.
I TYPE IN CAPS!
phukk dame now he wanna get mad at lyor he wasn’t saying chit when he was balling.
they named they’re label after a racist who would have slit his throat if he woke up with dame or jays bank accounts.
dame OR JAY WILL NEVER HAVE THAT REAL ROCKERFELLER MONEY.
Dame shitted on ODB and exploited him too
When he got out of prison, instead of gettin
Him help he rushed to the studio and put him
On a reality show.
You can’t help people who don’t want to be helped. ODB wasn’t going to be shit but what he was. Damon Dash isn’t responsible for Russell’s death, Russell is. You can’t abuse your body for years on end and expect to be healthy and live a long life.
Wu-Tang have some slave contracts. RZA has every last one of them contractually hemmed up. Damon has skills to be able to have gotten ODB to record as a solo artist. Trust.
odb already MADE SOLO RECORDS.
You’re right. I’m referring to the songs released when ODB was working with Dame. Dame fought for ODB. The RZA is about padding his pockets. He can care less about the rest of the Wu-Tang members. I’m glad Dame is still fighting for ODB, 10 or 11 years after his death.
He looking like too short but older. Short gotta have 10 years at least.
TOO SHORTS ABOUT 48.
HELL ICE T’S 56.
FIRST OFF PEOPLE DO CHANGE AND REALIZE THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS. PEOPLE TRYING TO CONDEMN DAME AND I REALLY DONT UNDERSTAND. THE TIDE HAD TO CHANGE SOMETIME. DAME WAS NEVER BROKE. ALL YOU HATERS NEED TO TAKE OFF THOSE HOODS. AND IM NOT TALKING ABOUT THE TRAYVON HOODS. HOW COULD ANY OF YOU THINK DAME WAS BROKE THAT FAST? IF I KNOW I GOT DOE AND PEOPLE THINK IM BROKE IM NOT TRYING TO CONVINCE YOU OF WHAT I HAVE. ON THE COMBAT JACK COMMENTS DAME SAID HE DIDNT MESS WITH COMBAT JACK BECAUSE OF THE PUBLISHING CLAUSES IN THE CONTRACTS HE USED TO WRITE. DAME SAID HE WAS NOT TRYING TO ROB ANYONE OF THEIR PUBLISHING AND COMBAT JACK WAS PUTTING THE CLAUSE IN THERE ANYWAY. THIS IS WHY DIDDY LOVES COMBAT JACK. DAME IS A STAND UP DUDE FOR REAL. SOMEONE MENTIONED DAME BEING ON THE COMBAT JACK SHOW LIKE PEOPLE DONT HAVE FALL OUTS AND THEN GET COOL AGAIN. DAME ONLY THE REAL IS GOING TO RECOGNIZE THE REAL AND SEE THE UNDERLYING WORKINGS OF WHAT YOU ARE DOING. YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW THE HATERS DO SO LET THEM DO THEM. THEY CLAIM TO BE SO SMART AND BELIEVE ANY AND EVERYTHING THEY READ AND SEE ON THE TELEVISION.
Love Dame. The truth will come out!
