Former Roc-A-Fella Records co-owner Damon “Dame” Dash recently gave his two cents on ex-pal Jay Z getting snuffed by sister-in-law Solange Knowles and explained why he shouldn’t sweat the small stuff. #DameShame
Instead of taking the incident serious, Dame laughed off Solange’s elevator punches.
“I was laughing. That sh*t was funny,” Dash said with no hesitancy. “Jay has to worry about perception because corporate people pay him,” the Harlem native said. “I thought what was ironic about it was people got to see how he plays sh*t off, and how something crazy can happen and then four seconds later when it’s cameras on, they act like nothing’s going on. That was interesting to see that and how good he was at it. But then it just kind of exposes it. It’s like how do you trust anything moving forward?” (HHW)
A few weeks ago, Jay and Solange posed together in New Orleans
Photos posted on Beyonce’s website Monday show the smiling siblings hanging out in New Orleans with their family. The pictures seem to illustrate that the “Crazy in Love” singer wants everyone to know that she and her younger sister have put the past behind them, after footage of a clash between Beyonce’s husband Jay Z and Solange at a Met Gala after-party was leaked earlier this month.

In a statement released to the media, the Carter-Knowles emphasized they were still a tight-knit family despite the fight drama.
“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.” (Statement)
They also denied speculation of Solange being under the influence of alchohol.
“The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.” (Statement)
