(AllHipHop News) During his now infamous interview with The Breakfast Club, Dame Dash was very passionate about instilling an entrepreneurial spirit in his children. Dame’s son Boogie Dash conducted his own interview with the Power 105 crew. Boogie and business partner Luke Pascal spoke about getting their start as entrepreneurs.
“My dad came in and said, ‘All you’re doing is making music. You’re not making no money. Throw a party,'” said Boogie.
He and Pascal then started throwing free parties before building enough buzz to charge for events at locales owned by Dame. The two then-teenagers eventually started several businesses including Chipz Cookies and the Buns restaurant, but they both admitted their family connections were beneficial.
“We got it easy because our fathers paved the way for us, but we met a bunch of kids that were hustling just like us,” Boogie stated.
Pascal added, “I was lucky. I had an opportunity to work for my dad, but that’s what made me [start my own business]. I don’t want to work for someone, ever.”
Boogie told the show’s hosts their own employees were inspired by Dame’s message of striving to be your own boss. Pascal also pointed out that Dame was instrumental in the early successes of Jay Z, Kanye West, and Rachel Roy.
