Dash Slams Jay-Z's Business Tactics

Hip-hop mogul DAMON DASH has reignited his feud with former business partner JAY-Z by branding the retired rap star underhand and manipulative. The pair, who were Roc-A-Fella Records partners before the company was sold to Def Jam in 2004, had a public fall-out over the business deal. But Dash insists media reports detailing his vindictive behaviour are totally untrue, labelling Jay-Z - who is now president of Def Jam Recordings - the catalyst for the feud. He tells King magazine, "My best friend did some s**t to me that I never thought in a million years he would do. It was straight war in there. Either you on Jay's side or Dame's side. "The perception is that Def Jam bought Roc-A-Fella. Jay's the president of Def Jam. I'm (OSAMA) BIN LADEN. You could either be with Bin Laden or be with (Jay-Z). You know what I'm saying? "Remember they put in the paper that I lost my deal? That wasn't true. They tried to freeze my projects. We'd go to (the office) and they'd have my picture, saying not to let us in the building. I was painted as a violent guy." However, despite his questionable business approach, Dash insists he still likes his former partner: "I don't respect what he did, but I'm not gonna let that wash away all the other stuff we did do. For the most part, he's a good n**ger."
