Dame Dash Calls Steve Stoute "Dangerous" & "Wack"

(AllHipHop News) It has become quite clear over the last few months that Steve Stoute and 50 Cent are not too fond of each other. After Stoute stated that he did not consider 50 an influential force in Hip Hop, the Queens rapper confronted the advertising executive at a New York Knicks game.

Roc-A-Fella co-founder Dame Dash has now jumped into the fray between Stoute and 50, and Dame is on Team 50. Dash posted the pic of 50 and Stoute face-to-face at Madison Square Garden to his Instagram account. The photo ran with a caption that called Stoute “dangerous” and “wack”.

Dash wrote:

Ha!…Steve Stout stays getting punked….but I have to agree with 50 on this one…he is one of the most dangerous people in our culture…he makes artist from our culture make themselves corny by working for corperate so he can personally gain…he’s wack and he makes everyone around him look wack…beware

    i dont know mane!! dame is my dude but stoute has done some good deals out here … he pretty much stays incognito cause he doesnt want to spoil his campaigns … but im pretty sure the reebok deals the pepsi deals the sprite deals the hp deals the hennesy deals etc… that we see these artist enjoying from jaye to nas to drake to weezy can be contributed to stoute shoot i wouldnt be surprised if stoute had an hand in that jayz/samsung deal … not all cause im not 100% sure but im sure some if not most have stoute name on it … i feel dame but you cant knock corporate sponsorship totally off the map … it works very well WHEN it makes sense … and imo thats the stoute factor .. hes there to hopefully make sure it makes sense …. and not just doing deals for the check …..

    There’s some ghetto secrets I can’t rhyme in this song
    There’s some missing pieces I had to leave out
    I had lost trust for Steve Stoute
    At some point till I got to know him
    We old friends, but what’s loyal?
    Puff soaked Interscope offices
    With champagne bottles on Steve, and Steve thought the drama is on me
    Cause previously it would have been, against whoever
    Friends forever
    However, I learn, with some niggas it’s all business
    But I’m a street dude with morals
    To this niggas with Jigga too much, he used to say Jay wanted my spot
    I laughed, stayed home, never hung a lot- nas last real ngga alive

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • dehova

    The only artist I known Stoute to be around is Nas. Is he saying Nas is corny?
    Also, how you calling yourself “Dusko Poppington” and calling another man corny? “C’mon bruh”

    • 5% Hov

      NAs JAy 50 cent… lol

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      i rarely here nas and stoutes name these days … stoute is on that type time where hes more concerned about relevant platinum or better selling artist if jayz wasnt still moving plat hed prob wouldnt even be around him … but stoute out here chasing drake wayne jayz etc… these days trying to get that easy sell to the corps … nas running with them silcon valley dudes out on the west coast … however i have a feeling nas’s hennesy deal was brokered by stoute …..

  • Tfc

    Dame sneak dissing Jay. Dame blames Stoute and Kevin Liles for the reason Jay is on the way to billions still throwing up the diamond while he is trolling Twitter. Stoute helped school jay on corporate moves with the GM deal, anyone remember the jayz blue line of GM trucks….probably not but jay and his bank does. Jay and stoute are also partners brokering such deals as Budweiser, Samsung, Roc Nation, Carols Daughter and Stoutes Translation Media company. Dame has Poppington. So the motivation for the tweet ain’t hard to tell.

    • digitallife

      Sneak dissing Jay? Them mofo’s were just drinking $2000 champagne together in March…mofo’s sure hold on to grudges longer than the people they name in their rants..

      • Tfc

        Yup. Specially when your having money problems. Dame has a lot of time on his hands. He’s also got an ex wife to pay and children so I’m sure the way he deals with the success of men who were once his peers changes depending on the day. At one point he was richer than Stoute and seemingly on top of the hip hop world. Now, he isn’t relevant unless someone clips a tweet or happens past him at an event. Tough pill to swallow for any man, particular hard for one with an ego like Dame. YouTube dame with Roc to see how he used to shit on “lesser” people when he was at the top. He was an asshole. All those interns and pencil neck execs are now bosses and he’s broke. Karmas a bitch

      • digitallife

        Dame is broke? LMAO….as long as Jay’s old albums keep selling dash will never be broke son. Please wake up out of this slumber you are in..do you even realize how many full albums this dude is listed as credited for? As well as executive producer. I’ll put it to you this way, what this n* was paying in rent for his west village art gallery a month is more than the average person makes a year…a year. I’d love to be that version of broke. He may not be as well off as he was but this man is farrrrrrrrrrr from broke. Oh and before you get into the tax stuff, rich people negotiate their tax debt..Floyd Mayweather did it, Pacquaio is doing it, Nas did it, and so have countless others. This dude, suge knight, and many others will never go broke as long as old catalogues keep selling and they are on the credits for it. You got dudes from the 80s still seeing hip-hop checks every six months who ain’t been in the industry for over 15 years..

      • Tfc

        I’m not going to argue about another mans pocket but you are incorrect about Dame profiting off jays albums. If you were as big a fan of the Roc as I am you’d know that part of Jays takeover at Def Jam was his chess move buying his own publishing and masters. You can reference his latest drake diss about missing royalty statements or countless other statement he’s made to that effect. He’s quite proud of it…as he should. I’ll assume that you know what that means.lol. For those who don’t…dame ain’t getting shit from the roc, roc nation or roc a wear. He don’t even get money off of cam, beans or kanye who were all his artists. Sad right? Nah, business. Of the sort Stoute and Jay understand. Dame has had several homes and cars repoed and foreclosed in the past few years. He’s in litigation as we speak for failure to pay child support, alimony and taxes. In short, that nigga broke B. Sure, someone who was once rich can negotiate debts and access credit but I’ve seen Dame personally in Miami and he ain’t look good bruh. Nigga broke.lol.

      • digitallife

        I’m just going to ask you out of curiosity, have you ever taken a business class? A copyright law class? Have you ever published a song? Do you really understand how publishing works? Do you understand residuals? Do you understand executive production credits? Because as you stated you are a fan, a fan with a clear bias and that’s fine but you are talking out of your @ss because you have no idea how any of that ishhh works son. I’m telling you that you are wrong. Jay may have bought “HIS” publishing and “HIS” masters but that only means he’s still gotta pay out to the others listed on the publishing. He still has to pay the Jus Blaze, the DJ Premier’, the co-writers, and down the line. Only difference is he manages that now instead of an intermediate company. Jay bought Rocafella the brand, not all of it’s assets and by the way everytime Paid in full airs..Cam, Jay, Dame all get a check from it. Don’t believe it feel free to hit up the man on twitter and ask him yourself. Don’t take my word for it..do the leg work and prove yourself right or wrong.

      • digitallife

        It’s alright you’ll reply with some dumb shhh without bothering to research anything of what i’ve smacked you with..I won’t bother reading the reply nor waiting for it…Dumb mofo’s remain dumb because they are too lazy to find the truth…

      • Tfc

        We agree about something.lmfao

      • digitallife

        That you are a complete dumb mofo…yes we agree on that..100% in agreement.

      • Tfc

        Actually as a published artist I can give you several lessons on royalties and the reason Jay has to still pay “Artists” royalties from his recording. They have mechanical rights to them considering they as artists partially created such works. Dame was an executive producer…meaning his royalties are executive executions. Null and void with the end of his partnerships

      • 5% Hov

        Correct

      • digitallife

        Now you are a published artist…I thought you was online teaching people to leverage SEO lying @ss mofo..gtfoh…

      • Tfc

        Ok. Can you please let go of my dick bro. I’m not into little boys bruh. I’m asking nicely. Please. That’s twice I asked nicely. Get a lollipop or a Popsicle…I don’t need u sucking on me all night. Then ya mama gonna get bored n I gotta hear her shit my guy. Knock it off.

      • Tfc

        Just a tip for those producers or artists who actually do want to get paid for selling loop libraries or original beats you don’t want to be as dumb as this dick riding moron stalking me. You will want to understand SEO. In fact, if you are in business period, your smart enough to know that. This message is for the special people.lmao

      • digitallife

        You call yourself a musician publishing loop libraries..gtfoh..i’d pay your broke @ss to go away…fk outta here..this n’ said loop libraries..I can’t with these fraudulent know nothing pretending @ss mofo’s on the internet..seriously he went from seo expert, to published artist, to loop king. Loop my foot up your @ss…I bet you are one them anyone listen to my track twitter mofo’s who used to hound myspace for clicks…

      • digitallife

        Still liking your own comments huh fruit…only a fruit would sit there talking about another man suking anything on him…ole undercover luther vandross mofo..got caught up lying turn to the insults…

      • TheOnlyCoop

        Jay owns all of the masters from everything but R&D, so Dame gets nothing from them. He didn’t even have any publishing rights. Also Suge gets nothing from the Row because he lost everything due to the bankruptcy because he lost that lawsuit to Harry-O and his ex-wife.

        Also the gallery is owned by someone else Dame is just the face.

      • Tfc

        Exactly. Silly us for knowing tho. I just recently started commenting on message boards to teach a few morons how to flip SEO then I said why not try to drop some facts while I’m at it but it honestly seems like most of the people who visit hip hop sites like being uninformed.

      • digitallife

        Flip Seo…n**ga ur a fanboy…stfu..since when does leveraging keywords equate knowledge of the music industry? Oh that’s right sucka two separate worlds.

      • digitallife

        So because Jay owns the masters that means he don’t have to pay the producers? The musicians, the co-artists, co-writers? In what galaxy bruh?

      • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

        Those people have been paid already!!!! The only way you keep receiving royalties on songs or albums is if you own some of the publishing on the songs.

      • digitallife

        Lmao…you might want to pick up a book on copyright…unless you pay an artists/producer/etc a flat fee via written contract exempting them from future earning..you still gotta pay em. Don’t take my word for it bruh…do your research…if you really really think i’m bullshhh take two minutes and do your homework.

      • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

        Our arguments are the same basically. None of us has seen any of the contracts that were signed, I do know that Damon has said if he could do 1 thing over it would be to setup the Kanye deal differently BKA get a much better percentage of his deal. Either Damon’s spending habits are way too high still or the money he “supposedly” earns off the old albums isn’t that much at all. He may have more $ than most of us but it isn’t much, which is why he’s constantly talking about putting $ back into his business’, he’s praying one of them takes off.

      • digitallife

        He’s going alright bro..I don’t believe the hype. Dame has way too many skills to bring to the table to be broke. Guys like Dash, Irv, and Dupri have too much experience to not be in demand for their services. Dash has a reason to hide his money tho..his ex wife is no joke.

    • TheOnlyCoop

      Most people don’t even understand that Jay is a partner in Translation. And that partnership puts money in his pocket from artist that claim to not even like him and have had nothing to do with him musically.

      • Tfc

        Exactly. Dame just upset that what he perceives as “wack” allows men like Stoute and Jay to provide more opportunities for more brothers to achieve the same “wack” success that they have. Dame is a smart man from a smart family but his ego strangles his vision. It makes sense when you look at the company he keeps. It’s fine to keep the same friends (Cam & Jimmy). I get it, day 1 yada yada….cool. Keep your friends, but if you can’t grow into larger spaces with people that push you to become better you’ll return to the small tacky box you started from. Jay has Obama, Oprah, and CEOs and commissioners from every major sports on speed dial….Dame has jimmy and cam. You do the math. One writes checks and hits, the other writes tweets.

      • digitallife

        Jay has obama, oprah…GTFOH..that’s called PR…Please do yourself a favor and watch and learn some stuff about PR mofo’s are so gullible. If you had a million to donate to Obama’s campaign and had a recognizable face you too could hang out with Obama. When have you seen a picture of Jay-z with Obama that was a casual picture of them chilling and eating..never..NyTimes brings in warren buffet for a photoshoot with the mayor of NYC they invited 20 other celebs but jay-z is now buddies with Warren Buffett? I guess J-Lo and Marc Anthony who were also there play Marco Polo with Warren and his wife… N* Pleaseeeee stop believing all the blogger bullshhh you read…

      • Tfc

        This will be my last reply because you’re clearly very VERY uninformed. First of all, you find me another entertainer that was SITTING DIRECT NEXT TO OBAMA AND HIS FAMILY AT INAUGERATION.LMFAO. That my genius friend, will be in text books forever. Not blogs, TEXT BOOKS. Obama himself credits Jay and Puff for getting out the vote and frequently has Jay and B to the White House. He also had the justice department ok Jay to got Cuba for mojitos. I guess that’s PR? Where they find these dummies. Finally, Jay and Oprah are partners in several business deals one being her Network the other being her minority share in carols daughter. So u see, you don’t know very much bruh. You could put more effort into arguing me or you can go read a book. Either way, anyone reading knows who the fool is.

      • digitallife

        At events…you’ve got Jay and Beyonce in the same room as people who can pay $250,000 for a silver plate dinner. I’m wrong? Really, then explain to me why it’s called “fundraising”..he was at the inauguration..so were how many other dozens of celebrities…lmao @ he had the justice department ok a trip to cuba..all you need to do is go to D.R. and you are free to fly into cuba son. So people because they are investors are friends? LMAO..I make my living off this business..you waste your money on it…there is the difference. As the saying goes, learning the truth about your idols will always be a huge letdown.

        Jay – Z was on the cover of the Forbes 400 Richest Americans with Warren Buffett 2 years ago. Contrary to you Self Hating African American’s who can’t see past hanging on the corner that’s a huge honor!!! Especially considering Jay was raised in the projects!!!!

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        dope comment i also like what fif says … im not hanging with no one who doesnt have the INFO !!!!!!!!! lol … i dont think jimmy and cam doesnt know anything that dame doesnt already know …. if anything its more of Cam and Jimmy latching onto dame … cause dame is the owner of the factories that make Creep Life and Vampire Life … and with all this artsy talk from top guys like Ye and Jayz dame is the only 1 that im aware of that actually owns an art gallary called Poppington … Dame def be in circles that no one in hip hop is in … im not familar with it all … but around the time when dame first got with jimmy after the break up … they were doing alot of viral videos and most of it was just Dame putting jimmy onto game and jimmy sort of looking like a fish out of water cause dame had im amongst a very different crowd of folks that def = INFO … imo never sleep on anyone especially the underdog …… its easy to call success in the midst of someone succeeding …. but who seen 50cent blowing up as big as he did in the midst of him dropping songs like How 2 Rob … no one … who seen him coming back after getting shot no one …. altho dame already went thru a pinnacle … thats the hardest thing to do is reach your pinnacle … fall off then rebound …. i think Dr Dre is prob 1 of the few that has been able to do that …. not many accomplish that but i still dont ever put nothing past an under dog that hustles hard !! thats Dame … and thats also Fif … waiting to see if he can regain some major steam after leaving interscope … so far his campaign is eons better than it ever has been with interscope post his 1st 2 albums….

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      forgot about carols daughter ….. yeah cosign this right here …. im pretty sure stoute is on it … simply cause i dont think there is another ouchea that does what he does … and also has the connections to the artist ….

      “ol Steve looks like he’s listening carefully to a few choice words” … imo sometimes we need to instead of reacting out of embarrasment …. alot folks need to take heed instead of using the hater shield all the time …. even fif but i think he has … his current run shows he has def listened to reasoning ….

  • Dame loses on this one. How can he call Stoute one of the most dangerous men people in our culture when he belongs (or rather belonged) to the same sh*tty system? They all pimp the Black community for dollars. Dame is no different than Stoute in my book. Sh*tty is as sh*tty does.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      corporate sponsorship can hurt if not done right especially when it doesnt make sense .. but imo thats what stoute was great @ … cause he understands hip hop …. and marketing ….. so he tries to provide that bridge where a check can get generated and it also makes sense in the hip hop world where the fans wont get on some WHATS UP WITH THIS BS ……. like similar to what hammer went thru back in the days …… its sad to see pepsi be a big hip hop support today due to what hammer went thru …. but then the way it was done it was tasteless and with hammer already sort of having a pop feel in that authentic hip hop world it was bound to fail … it wasnt until sprite nas & az (which i think stoute might of had a hand in) they got it right …… stoute also played a part in RunDmc and addidas but i dont think that was until after the fact …. cause addidas had to be sold on the idea @ that time …..

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        i said in retrospect tho .. of course looking @ the moment it SEEMED like an good idea … but were those moments what help sour the relationships between roc & defjam and with in the roc …….. i mean it wasnt like they were arguing over POINTS …. they were arguing over branding …. and when was the lastime they did a roc da mic tour !!!!!!???

    • D. Rose in the paint

      That was Kevin Liles from DEF JAM! LMMFAOOOO!! He snapped on Liles because Def Jam was trying to make the tour look like a Def Jam tour and place their brand over Rocafella….when in fact it was a Roc-A-Fella Tour…Dame was heated over that, rightfully so

      • Head first…str8 out the nearest window….after cutting his jawnt off like that Wu Ninja.

  • therealest1

    Damon Dash was an astute, successful businessman no doubt. He got deals done and profited. I always thought he was smart, but his partaking exorbitantly in the spotlight and visibility, i.e. constant appearances in artists’ videos, were detrimental to him. He was a real dude to me, spoke his mind even though he did have a big mouth. He’s not as successful as before because he’s been blackballed from what I understand. I doubt he’s far from broke, he’s just not Hollywood balling or rich like before because of the lack of incoming ventures and deals.

    Steve Stoute just seems like a snake to me. He even sounds so fraudulent when he talks. It just doesn’t sound like him because he tries so hard to sound proper and educated to appease the corporate whites and Jews which comes off as fake to me. Although Stoute is successful, its hard for me to respect him because he seems like a sellout and will sacrifice relevant black individuals to further his success.

    I might be in the minority on this, but I have way more respect for Dash than Stoute. Dash may have made unwise decisions with his profits, clamored excessively for exposure or hampered his future opportunities with his personality, but he was real to me when Stoute puts on too much of a front with his image and talk.

    Stoute must have done something very wrong if Puffy would actually confront him like that and hit him in the head with a bottle! And 50 even confronted him recently in public!

    • 5% Hov

      Business is war. Steve definitely won. His agency is worth hundred of of millions.

      Dame is living off legacy deals – Rachel Roy, Royalties from Rocafella. I respect his grind but he has yet to profitable -Dash oil, Art galleries, Online shopping etc

      Dame seems unable to controll his mouth and business relationships.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        one good thing i will say about dames current hustle … @least hes doing what he wants and imo no amount of $$$$$$$ can top that … but his fashion endeavors (hes behind vamp and im sure is helping cam with his fasionable capes) and his art gallery seems to be doing quite well

      • D. Rose in the paint

        Dame is full of shit…he would trade places with Stout in a heartbeat

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        i doubt it … stoute runs his own business but hes focused on marketing … dame is a hustler who likes to create brands and build them then sell them to the highest bidder or continue to own and operate the biz and stay indy …… but his thing is to be a boss and owner … dames thinking is beyond what stoute is to the business world … i cant see him wanting to trade shoes with that guy … dame would prob rather be in lyor shoes before stoute ……

      • These are new ventures, businesses are not always profitable during the first few years of trading.

        I do agree that dame lacks diplomacy, which is a key skill in business. But sometimes saying it the way it is works too, depending on what business you’re in.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      i cant totally agree with him being in videos as his downfall .. i mean if there is any truth in that diddy should be right behind him .. because for the most part people loved Dame in the videos but people hated the fact that puff was ALL IN THE VIDEOS lol … dames attitude is what killed him … and not the fact that he had an attitude or should I say STRONG OPINIONS … but its because he was rolling with dudes who didnt share the same OPINIONS and PASSION when it comes to business … he was working with dudes who had a different approach and pretty much wasnt backing that wild cowboy ish dame tended to get on …. now had it Been Dame & Kanye all this time … it might of been a match made in heaven …. but since it was Dame (aggressive) & Jayz (passive) & Biggs (so passive we dont even know his oppinion lol) … it eventually didnt work out once everyone was successfull and standing on thier own 2 …..

      • therealest1

        Oh yeah, I forgot about Biggs, the extremely silent partner in that 3 headed partnership in Roc. He was so silent, it took me years to learn he was 1/3 of that ownership regime. He was also so silent, he was selling large amounts of weed that ended up imprisoning him after Roc. Too bad he didn’t have the mentality to stay legitimate and take advantage of opportunities when it came to him, he still decided to stay in that street shit he was used to that eventually doomed him.

    • D. Rose in the paint

      I dont respect people like you…people who discredit people for being “fake” as if thats wrong. The corporate world has a protocol and a code of conduct….YOU HAVE TO BEHAVE IN A CERTAIN WAY! Its not the streets or hip-hop culture….its corporate culture. Nobody cares about how “real” you are in the business world. You have to be articulate to be taken serious and to have credibility amongst people trusting you with their money. I would trust Steve Stoute befor Dame Dash with my money, strictly off of his professionalism alone.

There is something to Kanye feeling he has to get a major corporation involved with his fashion brand as to Diddy doing it himself, who also seems to emplo and mentor people from the hoods here in NYC. Yes, some brands are not that bad to do business with but some are just poison to the hood as they get them to buy but will never employ these people. Yes, he does have a track record for certain artists not thriving but I overstand how and why he is trying to get Rick Ross to have his own label, video production company, and liquor company through him managing him.

    Stoute is a snake and a sell out…do the math on that clown…his money ain’t my money so it makes no difference to me how much he has…

    you groupie sounding cats in this thread marveling over his perceived riches are the exact type being market to and you can’t see the forest for the trees…smh

    The type to stab your brothas and sistas in the back for the opportunity to sit on the casting couches of these weirdos in hopes of a chance to take it up the cheeks for a wooden nickel…

    *side note…5 percent hov…I’m asking you for the 2nd time, who’s your enlightener B? I see you in here talking reckless again and you’re looking like a fool…again…don’t you have lessons to study newborn?

      Black people as a brotherhood/sisterhood is an EVEN BIGGER illusion. Blacks in America are no more brothers and sisters as we are with white, Asia, Eskimoes, and whoever else….we are not brothers and sisters. Before being enslaved African tribes were at each other throats……same as Europeans had been fighting, killing, and enslaving OTHER EUROPEANS for centuries. So that brother sister ideology is a joke.

        In Gods eyes we’re all brothers and sisters in the human race. My fellow Black are my brothers and sister in the struggle!!!
