Joie Manda Addresses Dame Dash Calling Him A "Culture Vulture"; Dame Responds Back

(AllHipHop News) Dame Dash has been on personal mission of calling out what he sees as “culture vultures” in Hip Hop. His hit list included music executive Joie “Joeyie” Manda. The former Def Jam president visited the Combat Jack show to discuss Dash’s attack against him as well as his early life and his history in the game.

“There’s nothing going on on my side of it. Dame put my picture up on Instagram a few times, and he said some unkind things which I was really surprised about,” said Manda. “I know Dame. We were never friends. Not to say we ever had a problem, but we never hung out.”

He added, “I don’t know what goes on in anyone else’s brain. I don’t know what’s fueling him. I don’t agree with the things he says, but it’s for him to say.”

Dame heard the 80-minute interview, and he released another statement about Manda and Combat Jack via Instagram.

So disappointed in@combatjackshow for this lame interview but hearing this culture vulture lie was pretty funny they only spent 5 min of the whole interview addressing my concerns which was the only reason he was up there in the first place… Such a lame thing to do to your fans @combatjackshowhope you enjoyed our interview cause it won’t ever happen again…your now a victim of a culture vulture…look how cool they look by the way…I’m done with this lame whoever has to work under him should be laughing at him in front of him….he deserves to be treated like a liar… He cant remember is to funny to me he had the nerve to say that with a straight face

    Dame Dash all bitter and jealous.

    • Joshua

      You don’t think they pimping hip hop culture you a fool. Coon music was music written by white people for black artists and what do our artist do today, practice coon music willingly. The drug using, drug dealing, pimping is all coon music yet we celebrate like that was the goal of hip hop music in the first place. Dame was on the inside so he know what go down. We openly hate our own kind and that’s cool. I will no longer listen to any artist who promotes this nonsense to our youth who are killing each other daily.

  • Brooklyn Stoop

    what i found interesting in this article is “the freedom of speech” argument.
    when Hip Hop was on the fight the power/F the police/Luke and the 2 live crew era there was no such thing as freedom of speech
    when rap is on use drugs, kill a naga, era now “they” dont wanna step on freedom of speech
    but dont say anything anti-ghey or pro-jew’ish (we want the power the jews have) then your freedom of speech is dead
    but say anti- black rants………….and the record is green lit

    • Eli Pinilla

      Your statement is off…..If there wasn’t the freedom of speech then, those albums would’ve never came out and sold millions…..2 live crew went to court and won the case on censorship based off freedom of speech. Honestly, if it wasn’t for that era and especially 2 live crew, you wouldn’t have heard half the music hiphop has produced.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        re-listen to the interview.

        combat jack questioned dude about the lyrics of “negative” rap for lack of a better word and balance in hip hop (or lack there is), about cheif keef lyrics and the collation of the killing in Chicago. the joie guys response was him not wanting to basically impede on their freedom of speech.
        did you get that part?

        so im older, and remember the fight groups like 2 live crew had to have so there freedom of speech can be exercised. i remember the attention ice t got for the cop killer song etc etc
        you are old enough to remember this?

        the “message” for lack of a better word in the music NOW is NOT the voice of the community or the CNN of the ghetto, the music now is beyond anti-black and is detrimental to us as a people. but in this interview freedom of speech was used to defend the music now…………but freedom of speech isnt being used when the artist say they dont agree with homosexuality OR a word like hebrew is edited on the all bout the benjamins song. so what im saying is i find it funny that freedom of speech was NOT used in OUR defense when we had something to say and really going at a system. but now that the music is destroying us NOW the reason being used is “freedom of speech”

      • Eli Pinilla

        I listened to the whole thing. And you got selective hearing cuz you heard that one part and ran with it. He’s sayin that you can’t stop them from saying what they are going to say. So you have to counter it by promoting positive music. I’m not speaking for every exec and I’m not trying to defend major labels and shit like that. In regards to what HE is saying and doing, he is right. Because he put out Jill scott, common, nas, the roots, ghostface, kanye. He’s putting out commons new album. So if we’re talking about what he’s saying and doing. Then he’s making perfect sense. There’s no contradiction in what he’s saying. Promote the positive too. But again, that’s just based on what he’s saying and doing. Don’t mean the whole industry is following suite, obviously their not……..When was black empowerment ever censored?!?!? Not promoted? Yea. Overshadowed? Of course. But never censored. Poor righteous teachers were winning grammys. Nobody has stopped pe from making new music. Or krs one. Or mos Def and talib. Or de la soul. I still listen to them now. You say your older, how many of their new albums have you bought? What’s the name of mos Def new album? When Is de la soul coming around your town? It hasn’t gone anywhere or been censored. The community just stopped supporting. If pe could sell millions, trust that there is a company that would make sure they were everywhere to sell. And you were there. Why didnt chuck d stick up for professor griff? Why kick him out the group? Why not say if he leaves we leave? I’m a fan, but call a spade a spade. When he could’ve stood up for the whole Jewish runs us shit, he buckled to the pressure and kicked griff out the group……They also talked about how you have to counter the easy “low fruit” promotion of negative acts by making sure people like kendrick Lamar get that same shine. Which he also helped and was apart of…….you can say whatever you want. But there’s gonna be backlash if you offend somebody. The Jewish community flips real quick. The gay community flips real quick. Same with peta. Nobody is being stopped from saying something if they want to, it’s just that certain groups of people hold you to your words when you say em. I think the hiphop community has lost that……

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        “And you got selective hearing cuz you heard that one part and ran with it”

        nah…….i aint run nowhere………im peeping the game. now if you wanna say im generalizing every exec based off of this interview then i can agree with that.

        “He’s sayin that you can’t stop them from saying what they are going to say”

        which is what i picked up on WHILE still remembering how “they” DID try to stop us from saying what we was gonna say………….AGAIN, that is me generalizing, no he per se might not say this or feel like that but im speaking
        of the whole. That’s why I asked you do you remember the war against hip hop……….how they DID want to censor us, you have to remember that to understand where im coming from.

        combat jack is the one that brung up the promoting positive rap and the low hanging fruit, joie just responded to that. but i dont wanna side step, what caught my attention was the free speech thing.

        “When was black empowerment ever censored?!?!? Not promoted?” let me take the black empowerment part away so the term dont interfere with the response. wasnt lupe and mos def in a censorship situation? lupe with the song
        that was cut abruptly cause of his “anti barack” lyrics or whatever? wasnt mos def pulled off the stage on 42nd street? i think it was a MTV event or something. c’mon man these things happen everyday to rappers who talk about
        other things.

        your saying that the reason why PE, Poor righteous etc isnt selling is causeThe community just stopped supporting???
        thats the reason? so why did lupe have that whole protest thing to get his 2nd album i think out, and the fans had to do all this hoopla just to get the album out. it was on the net a few years back. but if you remember that that was lupe
        fans, so that means he IS/WAS supported by his fans, so why he go through what he go through? thats the point im making. to think that the reason the music is what it is is cause WE dont support………thats crazy. Its like saying white people wanna call us n!gger cause we call ourself that…….oh that’s the reason why?

        ” If pe could sell millions, trust that there is a company that would make sure they were everywhere to sell. ”

        are you saying this ONLY towards “positive” rap or rap in general, cause these rec execs ARE dealing with artist that arent selling 500k let alone a mil. This same guy signed Trinidad james (did I hear that part right?) he even made sure he said, no we really wanted Trinidad james, so he was signed AND giving that advance because he cause sell a million?

        ” Why didnt chuck d stick up for professor griff? Why kick him out the group? Why not say if he leaves we leave? I’m a fan, but call a spade a spade. When he could’ve stood up for the whole Jewish runs us shit, he buckled to the pressure and kicked griff out the group”

        because the jews really ran them, if it wasnt true then chuck woulda defended Proff Griff………..but Griff was right and thats why he got kicked off. now back to my point, Griff being right is why Chuck D had to get rid of him……..which then set the mold for the generations up under PE and Chuck D.
        if our black militant group sold out then why am i standing up? i might as well get my bread, and that declines the music………..not a “lack of support” cause we always supported our music. we stopped supporting our
        music when the music stopped representing us.

        “you can say whatever you want. But there’s gonna be backlash if you offend somebody.”

        in all about the benjis hebrew is edited, what was the negative thing said? NOTHING. so why was that censored in
        a “industry” that claim (according to dude) not to want to mess with people freedom of speech. reggae artist have to sign a contract or whatnot saying they wont have anything anti gay in there songs. the out come of this……….pure folly in the music now. is it all music…….nah.. same with hip hop, when we STOPPED bangin on the police, and the industry, and the “man” etc etc we started destroying our self

        when we WAS banging on the system the system did eveything in they power to silence us or scare us not to say certain things, when we take that power to attack us, the system say, we cant stop their freedom of speech. thats what i find funny.

        “The gay community flips real quick. Same with peta. Nobody is being stopped from saying something if they want to, it’s just that certain groups of people hold you to your words when you say em. I think the hiphop community has
        lost that……”

        the black community lost that
        black people lost that
        black men, women and child lost that. you got nagas like
        lord jamar being dogged for his freedom of speech and nagas like buck shot saying OUR music ISNT ours. but then imma use something you said earlier,we dont support our artist. that why we so messed up. when we dont
        have it we say cause we aint claim it and when we claim it we say we dont own it. then look at others who is feeding they family off of our backs and say they respect our culture

      • Brian Jr.

        The truth of the matter is that if you insult Jews or Israel, you are done. Jews run the entertainment industry on all fronts. Look at what happened to anyone who has ever criticized Jews. They are forced to apologize or they are run out of the industry and they lose their careers. They don’t care if a song says kill cops, kill blacks, kill whitey, or anything else. If you say something offensive about Jews, you are in trouble. Also, because the gay lobby is supported and made up of a large portion of Jews, they are almost off limits too. Whites, blacks, and everyone else needs to understand this.

      • Terrance

        Don’t remind me…

        #DOUBLE EDGED SWORD

  • Quintin Williams

    Dame Dash making all these statements is a bit to late. He needs to focus on his career and stop talking for the Hip Hop culture. I would like to hear from Chuck D when it comes down to this topic

    • Joshua

      Chuck D has been saying this for years but nobody was listening. He been said the culture only benefits a select few while our youth remain brainwashed by the media to participate is this destructive culture.

  • As much as I respect Dame, I’ve got to say that he sounds like a bitter man. Why wasn’t he saying all this when he had that champagne life style?

    • Montezuma1

      Because he was a culture vulture himself at that point. He’s no longer part of the club so he’s “outing” everyone. He has an agenda but there’s lots of truth to what he says.

  • johnblacksad

    Damn Dame… smh

  • ANDRE SALAZAR

    I’d much rather hear Mr. Manda’s version of what’s going on because Dame is too inconsistent! Last week he was praising Combat Jack, but now he gets the other side of the story & now he’s dumb or something! Clearly Dame is the problem here & the public needs to wake-up: Dame had his opportunity to use his genius to take advantage of the corporate money getting thrown at him for years. So at the end of the day, he thought he was too smart for his own good & got outsmarted by the “idiots” he loved abusing!

  • All CombatJack did was give Joie the same platform to voice his side of the story that he gave Dame… how is he a lame for that? Dame spent no more than 5 minutes talking about Joie in particular on his interview…. how he gonna get upset that Joie spent the same amount of time on him???

  • GP

    ok two bald head losers crying pointing fingers at each other. next

  • Eli Pinilla

    Smh at dame. I keep on tryin to tell yall….not only did the “executive culture vulture” get on the same platform to tell his story. But it showed just by him tellin his come up and the artists that he’s helped put on that dame has more of a personal problem then a “they don’t care about our culture” problem. All combat did was get both sides, and look how dame responds…..

  • ChiVa02

    So Dame can talk all he wants about whoever he wants but nobody is allowed to defend themselves? Combat Jack is now only allowed to interview people the Dame approves of? I respect Dame, but come on now. That’s high school sh*t..

    • They should have them both on at the same time.

      • ChiVa02

        Yup!!!

  • Killuminati

    dame is just mad cuz he aint gettin no money no more so now everyone that is is either a “culture vulture” or “snitch” or “lame”…fuck dame dash

  • Slaughtr

    FCK Manda you niggaz better wake up!!

  • Combat did the right thing and gave the dude a platform to air his side of the story.
    That’s called a balanced story and true journalism.
