Music mogul Damon “Dame” Dash is on a war against lifestyle publication Complex and, specifically, founder Marc Ecko and has let the entire world know about his plans this week.
Dame resorted to his social media pages to fire off shots at the renowned publication and other notable sites.
Check out what Dame said about his now-infamous “Breakfast Club” comments on the next page…
This week, Dame spoke out on his now-infamous “Breakfast Club” radio interview with New York radio station Power 105.1 last week.
“Usually I talk a lot and there’s never anyone to actually talk back – I think we were able to see another person’s perspective and how they justify it, live in front of a lot of people. I think that was an interesting perspective,” Dash said before explaining his boss-employee comments. “I was saying if you have a job, you have to pay the bills, but that pays the bills momentarily. So if you have a job, in that moment, you should also be investing in something that you can pass on to your children.” (Hip Hop Motivation)
Instead of giving Dame props for his chat with them, “Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God noted a few big issues with Dame’s on-air arguments last week.
“When I watch back the interview, I see so many flaws in his argument and you realize how dangerous the rhetoric was. First of all, if you’re a businessman, a boss like you say, it’s very dangerous to not show any respect for your customers. And when you say things like having a job, there’s no pride in having a job, you’re sh*tting on your employees and you’re sh*tting on the everyday consumer that’s driving in their car going, ‘I’m never going to your son’s restaurant. I’m never going to buy his son’s cookies. I’m never buying Damon Dash’s f*cking movie. He don’t give a f*ck about me.'” (“The Brilliant Idiots”)
Charlamagne also went as far as to label Dame a culture vulture.
“And, in a lot of ways, that makes you a culture vulture – a white guy that’s not of hip-hop who is the head of these companies and in some of these people’s minds, doesn’t care about the culture and just profiting off of it. So if you don’t give a f*ck about the consumer, if you don’t give a f*ck about the regular person with a nine to five job, you look down on them – then you’re just making money off of them. You’re a f*cking culture vulture.” (“Teh Brilliant Idiots”)
Appearing on “The Breakfast Club,” Dame shunned questions thrown at him about ex-business partner Jay Z.
“No more Jay Z questions. I don’t want to talk about other men. It bugs me out. Why are men so curious about other men? I’m never worried about another man that much,” Dame explained. “I don’t want to talk about those days. It was 15 years ago… I haven’t seen Jay but two times in 15 years.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
