Dame Dash Fires Back at Steve Stoute Over Jay-Z Comments: ‘This is why I Smacked Him’

In a recent turn of events, music mogul Dame Dash has found himself in the middle of a heated exchange with Steve Stoute over comments made about the downfall of Roc-A-Fella Records. Stoute, a prominent music manager, criticized Dash for mishandling JAY-Z and the once-successful record label they co-founded. However, Dash did not take these comments lightly and fired back in a swift and unapologetic manner.

Stoute, appearing on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast, candidly expressed his disbelief at the way Roc-A-Fella Records fell apart despite having a groundbreaking artist like JAY-Z. He pointed out that Dash’s approach to business and his larger-than-life ego ultimately led to the label’s demise. Stoute’s remarks did not sit well with Dash, who took to Instagram to respond, revealing that the reason he had “smacked the s*** out of @stevestoute a couple years ago” was due to Stoute speaking on other men’s business.

This public exchange of words serves as a reminder of the tumultuous history between the two music titans. Dash previously claimed to have physically assaulted Stoute over an unpaid debt, and has also accused him of being a “culture vulture” in the past. Despite his aggressive response, Dash did offer apologies to JAY-Z, Lyor Cohen, and Stoute if he had offended them, indicating that he stands by his principles and morals.

As the dust settles on this latest chapter of their ongoing feud, it is evident that the history and complexities of the music industry continue to shape the personal and professional relationships of those involved. The clash between Dame Dash and Steve Stoute underscores the high stakes and intense emotions that are inherent in the world of entertainment and entrepreneurship.
