Peep the live interview

Damon Dash has announced he will re-start legendary Hip-Hop imprint, Roc-A-Fella Records, which was originally founded by Jay-Z, Damon Dash and Kareem “Biggs” Burke. The first release under the Dash-controlled label is Curren$y’s Pilot Talk, which is due in stores on June 15th. “Def Jam or Universal bought the brand. I think the ‘beef’ [with us and Jay-Z] was that Jay made it clear he didn’t want me or Biggs to be a part of it,” Damon Dash told MTV News. “That’s really where it was at. Now that he doesn’t work for Def Jam anymore, he doesn’t have the right to use the name. So there’s no reason for us not to use it. It’s there, and it’s a brand that’s not being used. So I was like, ‘I’ll take it.’ It always meant something to me.” Dash’s deal was confirmed with Def Jam, the parent label which will distribute Roc-A-Fella.
