Dame Dash is ready to tell his side of the Roc-A-Fella story.
Well this sounds pretty interesting. According to Deadline, Dame Dash is currently developing an upcoming TV series that will dive into the rise of Roc-a-fella Records; the famed label he founded with Jay Z & Kareem Burke back in 1996.
Dash and the show’s executive producer, Lemuel Plummer, said the show would offer a "brutally honest account" of the Roc-A-Fella story, starting with Damon’s journey from street hustler to Jay Z's manager, the label's launch and release of Reasonable Doubt, and more. The series will also apparently take a look at Dash's relationships with Aaliyah and designer Rachel Roy, as well as the infighting and rumors that ultimately led to Dash and Jay cutting business ties around 2004-2005.
Note, Dame clarifies that the series wouldn’t be a biopic about Roc-A-Fella however, but rather something similar to that of HBO’s version of “Vinyl” or FX’s “People Vs. OJ Simpson.”
As for the soundtrack for the series or Jay’s thoughts on it, here’s what Dame told Deadline:
“As much music as I could get, I know what I own, and there’s a lot of different artists that would probably not have a problem with participating. And hopefully Jay doesn’t either, but as of yet we haven’t crossed that barrier. I’m not worried about that. What defined what we were doing is everything that was in my life equals Roc-A-Fella … there was a point of view at Roc-A-Fella I’m not quite sure people knew what it was. We had so much going on.
We’ll keep you posted as more details on the forthcoming show surface. Until then, let us know in the comments (below) if you’ll be tuning in to watch.
