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.

RELATED: Watch: Dame Dash Rolled Up On Lee Daniels And Demanded The Money He Owes Him

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.
