Dame Dash Reacts To ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ Calls Jay-Z’s Success “Bittersweet”

“ If I can make Victoria Beckham cool then hip-hop can make anyone cool.” —Dame Dash, King Magazine (2004)

Jay-Z’s new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, hit the Samsung server on July 4 and leaked on the Internet shortly afterward, meaning the album has already been listened to by most everyone who was anticipating its release. And maybe a few people who weren’t. Hov’s former business partner, Dame Dash, got a chance to peep the album while waiting to get his haircut, yesterday, at Well Connected Barbershop in Manhattan. The Roc-A-Fella co-founder took to Instagram to voice his opinion on the new LP. “In the barber shop listening to jays new album….I can’t front… I still like hearing him pop shit cause I know he’s telling the truth…proud to be be a part of that..#bittersweet [sic],” he typed.

You think Jay and Dame will ever work together again? The two haven’t been cool, publicly, since the business decision to sell Roc-A-Fella records in 2004, which is reportedly what caused the riff between the two former friends. In an interview, last November, Dame said he didn’t have any disdain towards Jigga or his success, but noted “Dr. Phil” would be needed for a personal reconciliation.
