Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame is letting the world know he is pro-Roc-A-Fella Records and, specifically, behind one-time estranged friends Damon "Dame" Dash and Jay Z reuniting this week.
Waka Flocka joined the Twitter chatter this week following photos of Jay and Dame linked back up bubbling online.

The music moguls met face-to-face and posed for photos together Wednesday night (August 7) in New York.
The Roc was back in the building last night. After nearly a decade apart, Roc-A-Fella Records co-founders Jay Z and Damon Dash reunited at the birthday of their mutual friend and associate Chaka Pilgrim in New York City. The old pals were all smiles as they posed for photos together. "I don't think there was anyone in that room last night that didn't shed a tear or at least get emotional," said Oluwaseye Olusa, who snapped photos of their reunion. After launching the careers of artists including Kanye West, Cam'ron, and Beanie Sigel, the music moguls parted ways in 2004. (Rap-Up)
Last month, Jay acknowledged seeing Dash react to his new Magna Carta Holy Grail LP.
"Yeah, yeah, yeah," Jay said when asked about Dash co-signing his new LP. "The thing, what we built, you can't take that away so no matter what, no time or space -- the love is still there. Because what we've done will forever be stamped in history. We created something that's gonna go down forever. So I can only have love for Dame. I just don't know where we are in our life, we're not the same two men at that time when we gelled in that way. We were two different people. I haven't seen him in a while. ... [His publicized woes?] I can't control everything. I can't control the things in life. Of course if you see somebody going through problems, I have ultimate confidence in him that he'll find his way 'cause he's an amazing and smart guy -- he's a hustler and he's highly intelligent, so I always root for him and always believe that he'll find his way out of it. But I can't control what happens in life." ("The Angie Martinez Show")
A few days prior, Dame boasted about Jigga's latest solo effort.
"In the barber shop listening to jays new album....I can't front... I still like hearing him pop shit cause I know he's telling the truth...proud to be be a part of that..#bittersweet," Dash wrote on Instagram July 5. (Dame Dash's Instagram)
