Harlem’s Dame Dash On Steve Stoute, Record Business, Culture…

May 30, 2014

Mario ChalmersHiphopwired.com reports that Roc-a-fella Records founder, Damon Dash’s career trajectory, but in this particular case it has led to some direct comments regarding music and marketing executive Steve Stoute

When speaking in a recent interview with Hip Hop Motivation about the dysfunction Black businesses not sticking together like they need to, Dash mentioned Stoute being a saboteur.

“You know how many Black people I tried to put together to make movies?,” explained Dash. “There always be that one group – or because of Steve Stoute, or somebody that’s a ‘culture robber,’ or doesn’t care about his culture – [that] would break that up.”

But that’s only the start of what the Harlem native had to say about Stoute, who he has previously called a “threat to Hip-Hop culture.” After mentioning he wasn’t feeling the Translation execs moves with Jay Z, including the Reebok deal and his connections with Budweiser, Dash unleashed some verbal vitriol.

“I don’t like that dude because he doesn’t care about his culture. And he’s a liar,” added Dash. “I watched him tell me all of LL Cool J’s business and all of Nas’ business when they weren’t doing well, so I never trusted him. And I also watched Biggie Smalls’ crew put lipstick on him and a wig on him when he fell asleep.  That’s how I first seen him. So I couldn’t respect him ever since that day.”
