You know Dame Dash likes to keep that same energy when it comes to being accosted of something. In his Roc-A-Fella days, he was liable to cuss out anybody from record execs to DJs and more. Well, a video surfaced yesterday of Dame inhabiting his Roc-A-Fella era spirit when he ran up on director Lee Daniels asking about the whereabouts of $2 million that Daniels received from Dash as a loan.
Dame called into Philly’s 100.3 to break down why he ran up on Lee like he did.
Dame Dash on the money Lee Daniels owes him:
I gave him $2 million dollars for one project which was the Woodsman, and when I made my money back he asked me to put that money into [the movie] Shadow Boxer and I was very apprehensive about it because that was my working capital to remain independent…he guaranteed me I would get my money back in like, 3 months. This was 3 years BEFORE the movie Precious. He made me an agreement to put me in every movie he made until I got my money back. My name was not on the movie Precious, I don’t get invited to no screenings. And even before that I put him at the table with a different circle of people. I tried to present him properly, I invested in his movies, we would go to Sundance and Cannes. I put him at the table with people like Andre Leon Talley. He would always sell me on the black thing, “oh we black, I go to Oprah Winfrey she won’t give me no money, I go to Denzel [Washington] he won’t put up no money” So I said “ok, I’ll try to help you but when you get there, look out.
