They say you can’t escape your past. Try as you might, the things you do in some way or another stick with you for a lifetime.
Fortunately, Dame Dash did some great things in his past, and, despite the now infamous breakup of the Roc-A-Fella brand, he can rest assured that his name will be forever etched in the halls of hip hop history.
With that said, he’s still getting asked questions about Jay-Z. In 2012. In a recent interview with Global Grind, he (again) explains that he’s in a comfortable space and gives a nod to Hov and Yeezy for the big things they are doing in the game.
“[Did I make any mistakes?] Not at all, look at Jay-Z, look at everything, look at Kanye, every success they’ve had I’m proud of. Every time I see them on television, I know what I did. You know in life, there’s tragedies, everyone has them, so even through the tragedies, I was able to deal with my tragedies in a way that other people usually can’t. You understand what I’m saying? I’m doing what I want right now. I still feel crispy. Somebody told you [me and Jay are still cool?] I’m going to leave that one a mystery. I have nothing but positive things to say about him. He’s doing well. I think he’s doing good, what he wants to be, he is and that’s what counts.”
