Former Roc-A-Fella Records producer Just Blaze has shared his reaction to Jay Z and Damon "Dame" Dash recently raising eyebrows by reuniting at a New York City event.
Just said finding out about his two former Roc bosses coming together was a great look and admitted he could not see them ignoring one another.
"That was dope, that was cool. That was very cool," Just said in an interview referring to Jay and Dame reuniting. "I think it's a thing where it would have been -- I wasn't at the party -- but knowing how Jay moves, it would have been crazy for them to act like they were not speaking. You see what I'm saying?"

The hitmaker also updated fans on his relationship with other former Roc stars and also detailed how close Kanye West came to moving into his home in the early 2000's.
"No, I haven't [stayed in contact with Beanie Sigel]. Me and Freeway speak, that's the homie. Me and [Young] Chris talk every once and awhile. Obviously me and Hov still talk, me and [Memphis] Bleek. When I see him, we still chop it up. We touch base every once and awhile. To be honest, I haven't seen Kanye in a few years now. [In the beginning?] Back then, he was d*mn near getting ready to move into my crib because he just was in transition from Chicago. So him and me, we used to talk all the time. He was literally two seconds away from moving into my crib. I remember he called me one night like, 'Yo.' He was just so frustrated being in Chicago but didn't have the resources to move. So he got that together but he was literally two seconds from crashing at my crib. He's still the homie. If I see him, we'll still chop it up." (Whoolywood Shuffle)
The music moguls met face-to-face and posed for photos together in early August.
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)
Earlier this summer, 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)
