It’s been awhile since the former hip hop mogul was in the spotlight. But on Friday, in a highly anticipated interview with The Breakfast Club, Damon Dash turnt up on DJ Envy after the host asked about his relationship with Jay Z. In one of the longest Breakfast Club interviews, the Grinch sat down with the popular morning trio for well over an hour to discuss his thoughts about business, manhood, and miscellaneous mumbojumbo.
1. Still stuck.
His attitude shows he’s still stuck in the Golden Years, when his notorious for yelling at executives, talking down to inferiors, and being an overall asshole. But in 2015, this behavior ain’t gonna fly. With no clout, money, or access, people will be quick to sever what little ties he has left.
Watch this vid from a Dej Jam meeting, and tell me he don’t sound the same.
2. Still feel a way about Jay Z
This man is mostly known for his long association with Jay Z. Of course he’s gonna get asked about it. The way he reacted was too much. And, if anything…he should’ve spoke about it. There’s a whole generation of youngins who don’t know him, but know Jay Z. This was a missed opportunity to educate the millennial market about who he is, where he came from, and why he’s still relevant.
3. Still arrogant.
He may not have his money anymore, but he still has that arrogance. With the yes-men, the puppy, and the talking down to people…ugh.
4. Still business.
There’s no denying he’s a business genius. His mentality is still sharp; inspiring folks to be their own bosses to have exclusive ownership over their products and services. Ok, I get that. And although the delivery was borderline repugnant, I get the point he was making.
5. Still Black.
I feel him ALL THE WAY on his analysis about how a select number of white people make monster profit off of manufactured Black culture. And in this era of New Blackery, where Black pop stars are conspicuously silent about the industry racial power structure, I found his honesty refreshing.
