Dame Dash Talks Making Street Money As A Kid [Video]

Dame Dash opened up to VladTV about being an entrepreneur as a kid. The music mogul said that while he’s not proud of dealing crack as a youngster, he said the big money set him up with the mentality to strive for more. Moving on, Dame said that after seeing a kid get senselessly killed in the street, which was depicted in the Roc-A-Fella film “Paid in Full,” he wanted out of the life and his eyes were opened after going to an industry party with his cousin. He added that he was motivated to really put his hustling skills to use after thinking that none of the people in the room with him were true hustlers. The Roc-A-Fella co-founder ended the conversation by speaking about his crew, “The Best Out,” back in the day. Dame said they were all about having fun and making money, which gave him a “mental independence and freedom” at a really young age.

Dame Dash: “I’m Not Mad At Funk Flex, Beef Is Off” [Video]

Business mogul Dame Dash sat down with VladTV to share his view of labels pushing artists to pursue 360 deals, saying that there is something inherently wrong with telling artists to “give up their entire behind.” “I’ve watched them [labels] trick people into thinking that after they’ve built their foundation and they have their show, and all the exposure is done that they need them to go the next level and have them sell their whole entire behind away. 360 degrees of your ass, pause, just ‘cuz of a trick.” He also said that he’s no longer mad at Funkmaster Flex and that the “beef” between the two of them is over as far as he’s concerned. He then questions why Hot 97’s Ebro doesn’t want to sit down and have a conversation with him. Lastly, he congratulates Angie Martinez on switching from Hot 97 to Power 105.
