Video: Dame Dash On Diplomats Reunion

I’m more happy than anything that they’re friends — that they were able to salvage their friendship, if that’s the case. I think they’re better than me for that: being smart enough and humble enough to apologize to each other and move forward. I really do hope that where I failed to be the right example, that they can be that. You always want the people ahead of you to do better than you anyway. For that, I gotta give them props for being men above anything.

He also says he would be open to the Dips returning to Roc-A-Fella.

Um, under the right circumstances. As long as everyone is happy, as long as the quality of living is never compromised, as long as everyone is on the same sheet of paper — of course. It’d be great. Anything is great under the right circumstances but a dream could become a nightmare when everyone doesn’t have the same agendas. That’s just a general statement.

Yesterday, Dame told MTV about his relaunch of Roc-A-Fella on Def Jam, with Curren$y’s Pilot Talk (June 15) and Ski Beatz’ 24 Hour Karate School mixtape as the first releases.

    ^Irrelevant to the issue at hand. The problem wasn’t how many checks was coming in and how fast or whatever. it was once they came in, Dame wasn’t cutting the pie the way it should have been cut. That aint got shit to do with whitey, thats all on Dame’s fuck upsq

  22. Eric Mangini Says:

    When Dame was in charge shit got done..When Jay was in charge Jay got done. Whiteys catered to Jay after the break up cause they knew how Dame was, and IN FACT if Dame was a white man they would have called him “shrewd”..but his blackness made him an ass.

    They just separated and conquered the Roc with a weak minded Jay playing the Brutus to Dame’s Caesar

    The problem with all of this nonsense you’re spewing is that if whitey’s plan was to hand Jay the keys to the kingdom:

    1. Why were 90% of the successful DJ acts found/discovered by other people?
    2. Why’d he step down?

    Why would Jay break the Roc without certain guarantees from whitey? Niggas don’t think..they run with the jay was mad Dame made Cam VP while he was on vacay shit..

I look at it like me living in New York but only being able to watch the Hawks, Braves, Falcons, and Thrashers, ya know? I don’t know those dudes, I can’t hop on the train (no homo) and see them play, they don’t embody what my region embodies.

    @ VCSOM– I never bothered to familiarize myself with the music of the Dips outside of a few singles here and there, but I liked that they were a crew that made a buncha music, some good, some awesomely bad, but there run’s been over. Cam’s still the same Cam ie his music and image are consistent, but Jimmy & Juelz apparent egos do not match their skill level or commercial prospects.

    In all fairness to Hov, Dame’s a grown man. All of that “You should’ve took me by the hand” shit is the same shit that Beans was on not too long ago. Nigga’s don’t want to get their act together, then they can keep it moving. Self preservation.
