Dame Dash has never been one to bite his tongue and now he has taken aim at Kanye West. Recently, Dame spoke out against former Roc-A-Fella Records artists that have not attempted to reach out or support former co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke during his incarceration. In his original statement, Dame didn’t mention any names but in a newer chat with Shade 45’s VIP Saturdays, he said he’s “a little tight with Kanye.” Later on the mogul said, “And the shit I’m hearing him complain about is irrelevant. Based on the face that he doesn’t look back to the people that helped him…I gotta have a conversation with him.” Watch what else he had to say below.
Kanye didn’t have the survival skills that he has to have,” he said. “Kanye’s built completely different than everyone in Roc-A-Fella. Also, I’m a little tight with Kanye cause he hasn’t reached out to Biggs. I don’t like that shit. So, Kanye holler at me. I don’t like that. It’s terrible…Biggs was the one that really was like ‘Yo Dame, pay attention to what Kanye’s doing. Make sure you send him that music.’ You know what I mean? So, it’s just not—No one’s reaching back. And I just—Certain niggas have. And that’s why I’m not calling everybody up, but Kanye hasn’t. And he hasn’t checked on his kid. He hasn’t checked on his family. No trial, none of that. And the shit I’m hearing him complain about is irrelevant. Based on the fact that he doesn’t look back to the people that helped him…I gotta have a conversation with him.
