Dame Dash admits he’s ‘salty’ over Jay-Z repeatedly doing him ‘dirty’

“Personally, the way he did me was dirty,” Dame told Big Boy TV this week. “The way he did [third business partner] Biggs was dirty. The way he did Roc-A-Fella was dirty.”
Dash, 48, went on to address Jay-Z, 50, allegedly telling music executive L.A. Reid that he wanted to run Roc-A-Fella — the legendary hip hop label founded by all three of them — without Dame and Biggs. At the time, Reid was head of parent label Def Jam.
“We was like ‘damn!’ [it was] out of left [field]. And when I had the conversation, he was like, ‘Yo, I want to look like a boss. I can’t look like a boss around you.’ I thought that was dirty.”
Dame also called Hov “dirty” for publicly distancing himself from Rocawear clothing — devaluing the fashion label — before signing a huge deal without Dash’s involvement.
“It was dirty business, and that’s how I feel. Anytime you ask me. I’m not salty for life, but with him, yeah, I’m salty. It was wack, and look, there’s no more Roc-A-Fella. It’s just him! Where is Roc-A-Fella? It’s him, it’s Kanye and who else? Everyone works for them.”
