Former Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder and hip hop mogul Damon Dash alongside Jay-Z and Kareem Burke, is open to the idea of a Roc-A-Fella biopic.
Dame Dash reveals a potential Roc-A-Fella biopic
In a recent interview with theJasmineBRAND, Dame Dash revealed that the biopic about the label would have to be done on his terms.
Dame Dash is opening up about his thoughts on a Roc-A-Fella biopic under one condition: he must have full control.
After watching the release of Ye ‘Jeen-Yuhs docu-series,’ the three-act Netflix documentary—a product of 20 years of footage of the artist formerly known as Kanye West—features some on-camera input from Dame himself during his Roc-A-Fella days in the early ’00s. But as he reflects now, he never expected Ye to become as big as he is today
While speaking to The Jasmine Brand, the Harlem native said he’d be open to chronicling the label’s history as long as it’s done on his own terms.
“There’s a time and a place for everything, so if the time and the place is a place I don’t own and a time that I don’t enjoy, then I’m not doing it,” he said. “But on my terms, I’m gonna do everything, but it got to be on my terms, or it doesn’t get done.”
“I’ve controlled everything else, how can I not control my life story If I’m alive?” Dash continued. “That would be a contradiction of the whole story.”
