Damon Dash To Bring Back Roc-A-Fella!
Dame is apparently going to resurrect the label withouth Jay-Z's help...
Damon Dash has claimed that he will resurrect the currently defunct Jay-Z and a guy by the name of Biggs put together a few years ago. According to Dame, the first project under the label with be rap newcomer Curren$y's debut.
"[Curren$y] inspired me to dust off the chains. We brought 'em out for kicks, just 'cause we could. Then we was like, 'F--- it, let's put it out through Roc-A-Fella.' It was really more something he wanted to do. Basically, 'cause we havin' such a good time, and the opportunity's there, we was like, 'Why not?' 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.”
He added: “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."
