Dame Dash, the co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, has reignited his feud with JAY-Z and Fat Joe.

In a recent episode of his America Nu Network podcast, the record executive responded to Fat Joe’s remarks that he was “delusional” and challenged him to “make another one [JAY-Z]”.

Dash accused JAY-Z of being a “double dipper” who took money from both the label and his own artist contract.

He said he had no interest in making another JAY-Z, as he did not make him a lot of money. He also claimed that JAY-Z did not generate $100 million a year for him, contrary to popular belief.

Dash’s comments come after he announced that he was taking back control of Roc-A-Fella Records, the label he co-founded with JAY-Z and Kareem “Biggs” Burke in 1996.

The label was home to some of the biggest names in Hip Hop, such as Kanye West, Cam’ron, and Beanie Sigel.

However, the label fell apart in 2004, when JAY-Z became the president of Def Jam and bought out Dash and Burke’s stake in Roc-A-Fella.

Dash revealed that he was able to regain control of the label after a legal battle with Burke, who had sued him for trying to sell his share of JAY-Z’s debut album, Reasonable Doubt, as an NFT.

Dash’s podcast episode has sparked a lot of reactions from Hip Hop fans and media outlets, who are divided over his claims and his relationship with JAY-Z and Fat Joe.

Some have praised Dash for speaking his truth and standing up for himself, while others have criticized him for being bitter and jealous of JAY-Z’s success and influence.
