Dame Dash On How Jay Z Lost Influence In Hip Hop Fashion

As we know Dame Dash isn’t hesitant at all on speaking his mind on Jay Z. Recently he spoke on Jay Z’s lack of fashion sense. He took it back to Harlem on 139th street, way before he and Jay Z got a record deal.

In the conversation on the Math Hoffa My Expert Opinion podcast show Dame Dash is reminiscent of the Big L and Jay Z battle that happened on 139th street in Harlem, New York.

Dame Dash takes the jab at Jay Z when he states that in Harlem they used to give Jay Z a hard time because he didn’t dress so well. And to be fair, Dame Dash took a jab at the whole of Brooklyn by saying that Jay Z used to dress like a Brooklyn n***a.

HOW JAY Z STOPPED BEING THE FLY GUY

Dame Dash continues and says that in Harlem they would give him hell over Jay Z. He’s referring again, to Jay Z’s then lack of fashion sense.

In a previous interview on Dame Dash’s The CEO Show on YouTube, Dame Dash got into Jay Z’s lack of fashion sense as well. He states that once they got on Jay Z became known as the fly guy. But he states that once Jay Z started wearing the collar shirts with cufflinks and Yankees hat he was no longer known as the fly guy.

DAME DASH BLAMES STEVE STOUTE

Dame then goes on to explain how that fashion move by Jay Z cost him a lot of money at RocaWear, the fashion company co-owned by him and Jay Z.

Dame Dash continues and moves on to the subject of Jay Z poorly branding his name during the Rocafella days and blames it on Steve Stoute. He blames Steve Stoute for putting Jay Z’s name on $40 Reebok sneakers and for partnering with Budweiser. Dame Dash explains why these were bad branding moves for Jay Z and how they poorly reflected on Rocafella.
