Roc-A-Fella CEO and self proclaimed "cakeaholic"
Dame Dash hopes to beat 1 in 135 million odds and win the Mega Millions Lottery
drawing. The jackpot is estimated at a cool $180 million dollars.
"Why not, I’ll take that money. It’s only
a buck," Dash told AllHipHop.com. "If I won that mothaf*ckers would
be sick. It could happen, I just play one or two maybe. But if I won, people
wouldn’t know what to do."
Tuesday night’s drawing for the game, which is
played in Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey,
New York, Ohio, Virginia and Washington, produced more than one million winning
tickets. Prizes ranged from $2 to $175,000.
Drawings take place twice a week, once on Tuesday
and once on Friday. The jackpot has been building since April 25, the last time
a person struck it rich.
Mega Millions was originally the Big Game. The
lottery made history in 2000 with a $363 million dollar payout, the largest
jackpot in North American history.
Meanwhile, Dash hopes to hit the jackpot with
his latest venture, Roc Music, which will focus on Roc-A-Fella’s R&B and
Pop acts, separate from the Roc-A-Fella brand name.
"I’m a dynamical dude and I like all kinds
of music. Good music is good music and that translates into record sales. I
got a couple of songs out on Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham). I’m trying to make
a pop star into a rock star and it’s pretty challenging. That’s my opening to
an international situation. There’s more money collectively in all the countries
than just in America."
Dash said that his introduction to one of the
most photographed woman in Europe came via his mutual friend, Naomi Campbell.
"I just listen to her regardless off the
strength that she has never led me wrong. She arranged for us to meet and when
we met we hit it off pretty well. I saw that she was a workaholic like me. She
wants to win and then I thought that this would be a challenging situation that
if worked out it could be really big. She did our [Roc-A-Wear] campaign and
I did her music."
Dash said that project was almost finished, but
was being slightly delayed by Beckham’s record label.
"I got to teach her record company how to
be a record company. They be trying to treat me like a producer. I’m like y’all
n*ggas is bugging."
