Some of Roc-A-Fella's soiled laundry has been aired out within the wake of the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries, with Dame Dash claiming his disapproval of Jay-Z working with accused pedophile R. Kelly on the 2002 album The Best of Both Worlds is one in all essential components that led to the label's demise. Now former Roc artist Memphis Bleek is stepping ahead to name Dame's declare into query.
On Friday (Jan. 11), Bleek was a visitor on the Dusse Friday Podcast, the place he shared his ideas on the topic, having first-hand information. "Everyone is aware of I fuck with Dame Dash, that is my man, Roc-A-Fella historical past. But any person gotta inform him, he's buggin.' You buggin," Bleek stated in the course of the sit-down."
Bleek went on to name Dame's claims a flat out fabrication. "And you then gonna actually say, you wasn't there with niggas? You was against it? You fucking mendacity," he added.
Last week, Dame sat down for an interview with Kenyatta Griggs of Hip Hop Motivation the place he talked about Hov working with Kelly after figuring out about what occurred with the singer and Aaliyah, whom Dame dated earlier than her dying in 2001. He stated it severely soured their relationship.
"To be sincere, in the event you keep in mind The Best of Both Worlds, you don't see my identify on that," Dame confirmed. "I by no means wished no components of that."
He added, "The factor I didn't perceive is, I used to be like, I do know I'm not fuckin' with that. And due to the ethical problem and him selecting a technique, I knew, morally, we weren't the identical. So, to me, Roc-a-Fella was defunct. It was over. I couldn't fuck with it. It was one thing that, to me—I don't wanna say 'unforgivable,' however I couldn't perceive it."
