This is the one you’ve been waiting for. Damon Dash talks Aaliyah, life without Jay Z, how he’s completely done with the music game, why he was an asshole to anyone who got in his way and why the kind of “broke” he is might be the best thing in the world. We also get some very tense moments as Just Blaze finally airs out why he didn’t eff with Dame. Ya’ll truly ain’t ready for this dynasty thing.

We get up close with E-V-E on the front cover of her fourth studio album, Lip Lock. Although it’s her first project in 11 years, here’s what she says with Billboard:
“I don’t want people to take [Lip Lock] too seriously. I’m not trying to relive any moments of my life. I’m in a new place in my life. I’m almost a new artist. It’s a fun record. I just hope that some of my fans, especially the ones that grew up with me, will just take ['Lip Lock'] how it is and have an open mind, head and heart. Hopefully [fans] will say, ‘Let me listen to where she is now.’ You will recognize me from Ruff Ryders [and] lyrically I’m still that girl.”
