damon dash*Damon Dash went in real deep recently during an interview with The Combat Show about the industry, Aaliyah, life after Jay-Z and more. He also takes the time to clear up the rumors surrounding his career.

But it’s one of the realist interviews you’ll hear from someone like Dash.

Best known being the … well… a**hole of the industry, he shows a completely different side of himself.

In fact, he even shares why he left long time business partner Jay-Z and Rocafella and addresses his beef with Just Blaze, who shows up for the discussion.

Further, he talks about why he prefers to work with women rather than men. It’s not about the sex (at least that’s not what he says). But it’s about how men become insecure.

“The more you do for a guy, the more they resent you,” he says. “I prefer working with females [like ex-wife Rachel Roy] because the more success you get, they take it as their success too. They’re thankful.”

Yeah, it’s interesting all the way through.
