Video: Rare Kanye West Interview From 2002

Monday, November 4th, 2013

Incredible hour-long interview with MTV’s “You Heard It First” that has never seen the light of day until now, subjects ranging from everything from meeting No I.D. in Chicago, early Roc-A-Fella days and predictions for the future that were pretty much all accurate. I’m guessing this never aired because this is almost exactly the same thing as “Last Call” from College Dropout, but more detailed.

I also realized I had never heard the full story about how he met Mos Def and Kweli. The story about Jay-Z coming up with “H to the Izzo” and him running into the bathroom to call his mom is CLASSIC.

Video: Damon Dash on Current Projects, Roc-A-Fella Years & Being Proud of Jay-Z

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Damon Dash speaks with Russell Simmons’ Global Grind (remember Damon Dash Music Group?) reporter Sharon Carpenter about a variety of topics ranging from his age (41) changing his pursuits, the “old” business model, and of course Jay-Z. In this interview he comes off (or at least tries to) a little less bitter than he’s been painted in recent years, but you can be the judge of that.

Damon Dash x Curren$y x Roc-A-Fella x Def Jam

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

So last week, when we posted the trailer to Curren$y’s new video, somebody over at Def Jam asked me to include a buy link for the single on iTunes. Although it was slightly more subtle than the defj.am link they had up on their site, I had to ask what was up. Apparently Dame/DD172 was trying to sign Curren$y to a P&D deal (pressing and distribution) with Def Jam through the Roc-A-Fella imprint… which belongs to Def Jam.

“The name is mine, I’ll take the blame for that”

“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. 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.”
