Cam'ron Says Damon Dash Slapped Harvey Weinstein For Disrespectful Behavior

Rap Mogul Damon Dash stood up to disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, and it got physical.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Cam'ron has revealed hip-hop mogul Damon Dash "smacked" Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein for "disrespecting the ladies" on the set of his film "Paid In Full."

Dash hit headlines during the making of the 2002 movie after he was involved in an altercation with Weinstein, whose brother Bob Weinstein was producing the project via his Dimension Films company.

At the time, few details were known about the reason for the scuffle, but now Cam'ron, who featured in the crime drama alongside Mekhi Phifer, has claimed Dash was standing up for the women involved in the project - even though he was the one portrayed negatively in the press.

The hip-hop star references the incident in his new song "Once Upon a Time" with his reunited group The Diplomats.

At the end of his verse, Cam'ron spits, "No disrespecting the ladies, word from my team/That's the reason Dame smacked Harvey Weinstein/On the set of Paid In Full, y'all gave him (Dash) hell about it."

The lyrics emerge weeks after Weinstein became the subject of an initial expose in The New York Times, in which a string of women, including actress Ashley Judd, accused the movie executive of sexual harassment and assault.

Other stars, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, have since also come forward with claims of inappropriate behavior against Weinstein, who is now facing criminal investigations in London, New York, and Los Angeles relating to various sexual assault accusations.

Dash previously opened up about the business issues he had with Harvey, claiming he blocked the launch of "Paid In Full" for two years after it was completed in 2000.

Jay-Z's former business partner pursued Weinstein all over the world in a bid to force him into a meeting, which eventually led to the film's release.

Much respect to Dame Dash. Now if only we could get some grown men to smack the ish out of R Kelly, the world would be a better place!


DipSet! Real talk dame should have smacked the bitch-ass Harvey W. Some of the things they say Harvey did, if he did it to my sister or step daughter then he would be dead and I would be locked up. He is a fucking pig...
