Jay-Z’s Roc Nation deal with the NFL has been extremely controversial and now one of the Jay’z old business partners is blasting him for conducting business with the league.
Last week, the NFL announced that it had reached an entertainment and social partnership deal with Jay’z Roc Nation imprint.
Several NFL players called out Jay-Z for making deal without consulting with Colin Kaepernick.
Jay’s former business partner, Dame Dash, who co-founded Roc-A-Fella records and Rocawear, went on Adam 22’s ‘No Jumper’ podcast to blast Jay-Z for signing a deal with the NFL.
“I mean, everybody knows Jay ain’t sh*t,””Everyone knows that…Listen, if you ask anyone in the industry, it’s a common knowledge that Jay ain’t shIt.” When asked to define what “ain’t sh*t” means, Dame replied, “He’s about the bag. We all know that. He’s self-preserving. Period. It’s just that the people he does it to don’t have Beyoncé next to ’em. They don’t have that kind of power, but this dude here, everyone’s looking.”
Dame even went on to compare Jay to President Trump.
“There’s always been a pattern with that dude, so it is what it is. Y’all know what it is,” Dame said. “It’s just everyone always forgives him. You know, he’s like Trump in that way. He can do anything, say anything and look at it—everyone goes with I guess, they just go with the popular sometimes. But again, it always reveals itself in some way.”
It is worth noting that Dame has been at odds with Jay-Z after they fell out following the sale of Roc-A-Fella records.
