According to Dame Dash, statements made in a interview he had with Wiretapped Live.
Dash was quoted saying “It bothers me because I put a lot in a brand and for whatever reason I couldn’t monetize it anymore,” he told host Sharon Carpenter. “Jay made a point that I shouldn’t have it,” he said of Roc-A-Fella. “I was thinking at the time it must’ve been ‘cause he wanted it but it couldn’t have been because there’s no Roc-A-Fella no more. So what was the purpose?” “Our friendship was built on our business obviously,” said Dash. “I become friendly with people I work with. I really thought we were friends, but I guess I got gaffled.”
