Combat Jack’s relationship with Dame Dash goes way back. So far this week’s episode of The Combat Jack Show, the Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder laid it all out on the table. Below is a synopsis of their conversation.
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.

Dame Dash has kept a low profile these days, but a few weeks back, Sharon Carpenter caught up with him for Global Grind.
After discussing his businesses ventures, he says that he’s proud of Jay-Z (and Kanye West). When asked about he and Hov’s current personal relationship though, he’s reluctant to divulge. Only Dr. Phil can squash this!

Dame Dash has finally responded to the lawsuit filed by Curren$y, in which the rapper claims the mogul has released his music without his consent. Dame’s lawyer, Joshua E. Seidman spoke on his behalf:
“My client’s initial reaction to the lawsuit was that of surprise, particularly in light of Curren$y’s numerous statements that the ‘Muscle Car Chronicles’ would be released by BluRoc. On March 15, 2012, the plaintiffs appeared in Federal Court to argue for a preliminary injunction seeking to enjoin my client from the continued distribution of the ‘Muscle Car Chronicles’.
The plaintiffs’ application was denied in open Court by Federal Judge Andrew Carter and the album was permitted to remain available through iTunes and other retailers.While the situation remains ongoing, we are hopeful that an amicable resolution can be reached.
My client wishes Curren$y the best in all of his future career endeavors. However, he has expressed a deep concern with respect to the manner in which the artist’s attorney and manager have conducted themselves. He sincerely hopes that Curren$y is not being misled or pressured into making unwise decisions, such as the filing of what appears to be a potentially frivolous litigation.”

Damn, Dame. According to the gumshoes at TMZ, Curren$y is suing Dame Dash for $1.5 million in damages for allegedly releasing his music without his consent. Earlier last year, Spitta moved over to Warner Bros. after parting ways with the mogul’s DD172 label.

Looks like Dame can now pop them bottles again. Yesterday, a Lower Manhattan judge agreed to settle the restraining order, which the city placed on his DD172 establishment last week for selling and distributing alcohol without a permit. Let’s have a drink and celebrate.
Dash’s lawyer Joshua Seidman told us that the city had never served his client any papers and that “selling liquor was never a part of the business model of that location.” (Two police documents from April and May obtained by the Voice list Dash by name on reports of an illegal bottle club/alcohol warehousing.) Seidman added that “the company hasn’t operated out of that premises since the beginning of summer.”

So much for license to spill. The Village Voice reports the Hip-Hop mogul was issued a restraining order and charged with six counts of allegedly selling and storing liquor without a license at his DD172 gallery in NY. He’s scheduled to appear in court on September 14. Pay ya taxes, that’s hustlin backwards.

“Nah, nah, I’m fucked up.”
Last Friday, Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Dame Dash visited Sway In the Morning On Shade 45. During his interview, he admitted to his financial setbacks and owing the IRS $2 million in back taxes. He insists that he isn’t broke. Instead, his money gets recycled into his other businesses.
“They’re auditing me. When you’re a business man, you have a lot of businesses, a lot of times they think you’re laundering money or you’re pretending you’re writing things off that you don’t,” he continued. “I’m a true businessman. As you know, I believe in my independence, I have no partners, so every dollar I make goes right back into every business I have.”

Good Day New York aired a profile on Dame Dash this morning from inside his DD172 art gallery. He discussed his new endevaors, money, and fall-out with Jay-Z. Good to see Dame bounce back like roundball.
