Sometimes with messy situations, it’s okay to point out the humor instead of the controversy. Dame Dash, Jay Z’s former business partner, shared his thoughts on the infamous elevator fight between Jay Z and Solange from the comfort of a Malibu kitchen.
“I thought it was funny cause Jay is the kinda guy you don’t see him move like that that much. And when he does move, if it’s not that cool looking, then it’s going to be kicks,” he told Hip Hop Inspiration in an interview. “Also I feel like nobody teases Jay but me for some reason. It’s just the first time I’ve seen people freely expressing themselves.”
He also went on to share why he thinks Jay Z shouldn’t really trip about the headline-making incident. “I don’t think he should mad about it,” he said. “I think he should be laughing. That sh*t was funny. Everybody fights. Girls done spit on me before but I be a little more ‘You better chill out.’ The shit is funny.”
It’s worth noting that soon after the Met Ball fiasco, Dash (ex-hubby of Rachel Roy, the alleged trigger for Solange’s anger) made it known that he was #TeamSolo. He posted “I am actually impressed with her independent spirit… She seems like a fighter,” as the caption for an Instagram photo of her. But he honestly doubts his “wife” Roy was a factor.
“If he was tryna holla at my wife though, that’s kinda f*cked up,” he said with a laugh. “But I don’t think he was doing that. That would be bad. That would be dark. That means he really has some resentment but I would hope that that wouldn’t be the case.” Interesting take. Watch the full interview up top.
