In a recent interview with Forbez DVD, rapper Sauce Money spoke about the downfall of Roc-A-Fella Records and the deterioration of Jay-Z and Damon Dash’s relationship. Money explained that the moves may have blindsided Dash, but made sense for Jay.
“I’m pretty sure that’s devastating. I’m pretty sure they established a bond, a close rapport with each other. I’m pretty sure it’s devastating. Am I surprised? Absolutely not,” he said. “I was gone early. But from the time that I was there, I didn’t see how it could last. Eventually, if nothing else but for a business move on Jay’s behalf, because at the end of the day it’s like, OK, we reached a certain plateau and Jay’s a very ambitious person. It’s only right that he can totally eat off himself and not break up his money three ways, because at the end of the day, he was really carrying the sh*t.”
Jaz-O was Jay’s close friend and early mentor, but has blasted his associate in recent years. Sauce Money had harsh words for the veteran rhymer.
“He’s a piece of sh*t,” Money says directly. “Without getting too deep into it, he’s kind of a two-faced kind of n***a. He’ll back-bite you about a n***a, and then when he get with the n***a, they do the same… He just a type of individual – and I don’t wish him no harm, but I don’t wish him well, either. They don’t know the type of n***a that he is. F**k him, man.”
