Dame Dash Evaluates Some Of The Hottest New Female Rappers Out Now (Video)

I will admit. This is not entirely what I would have expected from Dame on this topic, but there’s nothing out of line with what the boss says. You don’t have to entirely agree. I don’t. But I do entirely respect this piece. And all the Eye Candy… I mean… It is noon (c’mon son)!

Dame Dash made a name for himself as a co-founder of the iconic Hip-Hop label, Roc-A-Fella, so he knows a thing or two about emerging artists. For this episode of ‘The Cosign,’ we recruited the self-proclaimed “boss” to review videos from up and coming women in rap.

From Megan Thee Stallion’s “Big Ole Freak” to Bhad Bhabie’s “Babyface Savage” to Melii’s “See Me,” Dash shared his thoughts on some of Hip-Hop’s newest acts.

Damon Dash Speaks On His Cousin Stacey Dash ‘Cooning’ For Cash On Fox News (Video)

That’s her job right now: To evoke emotion on that platform… Either way, she’s my cousin.

What Dame is on: Yes, associate the name Dash with cash, but NOT with ‘coonery’… and NOT with Republicans! Well, say what you want about Damon Dash; but he is going to say what he is going to say and mean it. Family or not.

Above he goes straight ahead on the hot topic of the minute – the craziness his cousin Stacey is spitting on Fox News (especially against BET) for the entertainment of White people. But the balance and majority of the interview is about his business and movie moves on deck. Good watch!

Dame Dash Gets To ‘B-Real’ In The ‘Smokebox’ (Video)

It’s not hard. Setup the GoPro cam, get in the car, and fire up some bionic bubonic chronic. Then launch the conversation. Of course, the convo will go better if you have someone with something to say.

Enter Dame Dash.

How is dude making sense in the midst of all that haze?? Watch Dame speak with appreciation for the accolades B-Real showered him with, then speak on plans to move into making direct-to-consumer movies and out of the music business. Also, servicing the weed smoker culture; buying “bricks”… in the sense of ultimately investing in building venues and spaces in which stoners can smoke good and live the high life while getting high!

Way more covered in this ep. Watch.

(Got him at the end though. Crack a window or something. Hahahaaaaaa!)

Damon Dash Shares How He fights Custody Battle Without Lawyer (Video)

In interviews Damon Dash has been making the headlines for the topics he discusses.  Some agree some don’t but most of the Blogs and Gossip sites love to use his words to stir traffic not really investigating his true talking points.  Well Dr. Boyce Watkins has reached out to Dame Dash allowing him to discuss issues on his platform.  This is not a pair of people you would expect to partner up but I am happy to see it.  In this video Damon Dash explains how he is fighting for custody of his daughters without a lawyer.  He gives some detailed facts on what fathers can and must do to see their children in custody battles.  He is upfront with the fact that the courts will frustrate you but you must have patience and remember that your child is the ultimate prize.  I am not saying that Damon Dash is who you should pattern your legal battles after but if you took the time to watch interviews with him yelling at someone how about watching a video where he is imploring men to fight to see their children legally!

Dame Dash Speaks on Black Businesses Not Sticking Together & The Jay-Z vs. Solange Incident (Video)

Dame Dash speaks to Hip-Hop Motivation. Still tongue in cheek comical while sharing street-level wisdom. Check out his commentary above about how to handle the Jigga-Solange elevator incident and fallout. Back in the day, Dash and The Roc fam would have laughed the whole incident off (or laughed at Jay if he couldn’t find humor in how silly the whole thing was).

“If he was still hung out with us, we would’ve been roasting him.”
Dame Dash

Kind of brings the phrase, “Small things to a giant,” to mind, doesn’t it? More after the jump, as Dame speaks on ‘the trouble with Black folk.’

Cam’ron x A-Trak – “Dipsh*ts” (Video)

If you’re like me then you’ve been kinda miss that Dipset sound & movement as of late, but this new video & single from Killa Cam & A-Trak’s upcoming collabo project, The Federal Reserve EP,  makes it feel like the Dips’ triumphant return. Even Dame Dash reintroduces himself as ‘Champagne Dame’ on the track & video letting everyone know the squad is back. This clip directed by Ricky Saiz has all the elements that define what a dope Dipset song & video should be all about. All the of the principal Dipset members appear united, the Harlem people in the neighborhoods, the Just Blaze co-production, the fashion-conscious yet gritty connection to the streets, & even the big booty chicks like Cam’s girl JuJu who makes a cameo. It’s not too Complex, but it’s a start. Hopefully we’ll get another Dipset Anthem for 2014. Check out the trailer for Cam’ron & A-Trak’s upcoming film ‘2 The Hard Way (Pause)’ after the jump….
