Dame Dash Slams Kanye West’s Lack Of Support For Roc-A-Fella Co-Founder
Dame Dash and Sen City recently dropped by Shade 45’s VIP Saturdays with DJ Superstar Jay to discuss upcoming projects and old school anecdotes. When discussion turned to first impressions of Kanye West, Dame revealed a gripe with West over Roc-A-Fella co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke’s prison sentence.
“I’m a little tight with Kanye ‘cause he hasn’t reached out to Biggs. I don’t like that shit. So Kanye, holla at me,” he said.
Biggs was sentenced to five years in prison back in 2012 for drug trafficking and conspiracy charges. According to Dame, West has not been supportive of Biggs, who he points to as a large part of West’s success.
“Biggs was the one that was like, ‘Yo Dame, pay attention to what Kanye is doing. Make sure you send him that music.’ And no one’s reaching back,” Dame said. “Certain niggas have, that’s why I’m not calling everybody out, but Kanye hasn’t. And he hasn’t check on his kids, he hasn’t check on his family, no trial, none of that. And the shit I’m hearing him complain about is irrelevant based on the fact that he doesn’t look back to the people that helped him.”
