Jay-Z and Damon Dash to be revealed in a documentaryDecember 31st, 2008 - 4:57 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Dec 31 (ANI): The fight that caused the break-up between Jay-Z and Damon Dash from Roc-A-Fella Records is finally being revealed by former BET producer and Roc employee Choke No Joke.
Joke is releasing a documentary next year, titled I Am Choke, No Joke, in which he will give the details about the crumbling of the hip-hop empire founded by former fast friends Jay and Dash.
Dame was a camera freak. He loved people to tape him, ”cause he started thinking he was a star . . . Ever since the ”Big Pimpin” video, he started gettin” a little light and it started to get to his head, the New York Post quoted Joke as telling SOHH.com.
According to Joke, it was Dash’’s signing of Ol” Dirty Bastard and his proposal of Cam”ron as a vice president of the label, which Jay-Z rejected, that caused the disagreement between them.
Jay wasn”t feeling none of that [bleep], Joke said.
Dash was furious with Jay-Z for dumping him and starting off on his own, and revealed on a video on hiphopofficial.com, when he asked about producing tracks for rappers who slam Jay, that he was put in a position where he has no say.
What he did to me publicly could be seen as so heinous and foul that how could I ever tell somebody, ”Don”t do nothin”? . . . Before, I might have taken a bullet or a punch for Jay, now I just don”t get involved. That’’s the way he chose it to be. You won”t be hearing me say nothing about him, but I won”t be jumping in a fight for him, Dash said.
Jay-Z, on the other hand, has revealed that there is nothing wrong between him and Dash.
Dame and I are all good. We”re friends, he said. (ANI)
