It might be a long time before JAY-Z and Dame Dash hang out again. Young Hov’s former bestie has come forward to keep it 100 on the music icon’s publicized NFL deal.
In a new interview, Dame said JAY’s true motivation for linking up with the NFL centers on financial gain.
“I mean, everybody knows JAY ain’t sh*t. If you ask anyone in the industry, it’s a common knowledge that JAY ain’t sh*t. … He’s about the bag. We all know that. He’s self-preserving. Period. It’s just that the people he does it to don’t have Beyoncé next to ’em. They don’t have that kind of power, but this dude here, everyone’s looking.” (No Jumper)
On Thursday, Hot 97 radio veteran Funk Flex called out Jermaine Dupri for saying JAY didn’t tell him to fall back on a previous NFL partnership and suggested Roc Nation pressured him.
In a new interview, JD said while he did speak to JAY about previously working with the NFL during Super Bowl festivities, he didn’t have Young Hov corner him.
“On the Big Tigger show, I’m speaking and letting people know, he and I never had a conversation where he told me ‘Don’t do what you’re doing.’ What our conversation was, was that ‘You know what side I’m on. Understand what you’re doing.’ That’s what the conversation was. Because everybody should, like I said, even when I was doing my press, I kept having to reiterate the fact that, ‘Guy, I’m not doing Super Bowl, I’m doing shows in Centennial Olympic Park.’ And people just kept, ‘No, you’re involved in the NFL ’cause it’s an NFL sanctioned thing.’ Okay, that’s cool but we also have an NFL committee that’s an Atlanta committee, right? That people that live in Atlanta, people that move around this city everyday, shout-out to all of the people that work there…” (V-103)
A few days ago, Flexripped JAY for allegedly pressuring JD not to work with the NFL.
