Dame Dash Helped Pioneer An Era Of Hip-Hop, But His Five Kids Are The Most Important Part Of His Legacy

History states that hip-hop started in New York in the 1970s. With early acts like DJ Cool, Grandmaster Flash, and Afrika Bambaataa, the genre took off and developed despite early critics and skeptics. The persistent will of the people paid off as more rap and hip-hop artists, executives, and producers came onto the scene, providing space for people like the Notorious B.I.G., Lil Kim, The Lox, Diddy, Wu-Tang Clan — and Damon Dash. Dash is a New York native most known for creating Roc-A-Fella Records alongside partners Jay-Z and Kareem Burke. Officially founded in 1995, according to TIDAL, the label saw some early success by releasing Jay-Z’s debut album, “Reasonable Doubt.” With significant success throughout the ’90s and 2000s, Variety reports that Roc-A-Fella Records became a division of Def Jam, selling 50% of its ownership stake for $1.5 million. Dash would lead the company in signing artists like Cam’ron, Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, Dipset, and a young Kanye West. via GIPHY...

Dame Dash And Jay-Z Reportedly Reach Settlement In 'Reasonable Doubt' Lawsuit

The “Reasonable Doubt” fiasco between Jay-Z and Dame Dash has finally come to an end … for now. Just one year after Roc-A-Fella filed a lawsuit against Dash for his attempt to auction Jay-Z’s critically acclaimed, “Reasonable Doubt” album as a non-fungible token (NFT), the Hip-Hop mogul has reached a settlement with the label. According to TMZ, Dash is now completely banned from selling the 1996 debut album as an NFT because Roc-A-Fella owns all of the rights to the project. “Unless duly authorized by RAF, Inc., no shareholder or member of RAF, Inc. may alter in any way, sell, assign, pledge, encumber, contract with regard to, or in any way dispose of any property interest in ‘Reasonable Doubt,’ including its copyright and including through any means such as auctioning a non-fungible token reflecting, referring, or directing to such interest,” said legal documents from the case.
