Dame Dash and Jay-Z famously parted acrimoniously after having formed Roc-A-Fella Records together in the mid-1990s. The two haven't been friends since they split as business partners several years ago, but in a recent interview with Global Grind, Dash revealed that he bears no ill will towards Jay-Z or Kanye West, who Dash signed before Jay saw the up-and-coming producer's potential as an artist.
"Look at Jay-Z…look at Kanye - every success they've had I'm proud of," he said. "Every time I see them on television, I know what I did. In life, there's tragedies - everyone has them, so even through the tragedies, I was able to deal with [them] in a way that other people usually can't…I have nothing but positive things to say about [Jay-Z]."
Dash also admitted that he's grown and changed a lot since Roc-A-Fella's heyday.
"Back then, I was insecure. I was out [there] because I was worried about people knowing about what I was doing," he said. "I wanted everybody to know what I was doing because no one knew what I was doing. A true business person is not meant to be in front of a camera, but Roc-A-Fella was us, and I was 20-something years old. But I evolved out of that, and again, it was a different business model…Hell no [I don't miss those days]…but I know for the age I was, I was in my 20s, I know I was having a lot of fun."
