In a recent interview with Hip-Hop Motivation, Hov’s former Roc-A-Fella partner expressed his feelings about CarterGate – and he’s going to go all in, because he already told Jay Z: “as long as you don’t get offended when I play.” Well, it’s Dame’s time to clown and joke.
Here’s what Dame had to say about the elevator fight.
On why he thought it was funny:
“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. 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. What I’m really happy about is when they were bombing on me about saying I was broke and all that that there wasn’t any Instagram cause I’m sure people would have had mad funny jokes. But I would have been getting back at n*ggas. I like to snap.”
On if he should be mad about the situation:
“I don’t think he should mad about it. 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.’ Jay has to worry about perception because corporately people pay him. He really has to play that game. I thought what was ironic about it was people got to see how he played sh*t off. And how something crazy can happen and four seconds later when it’s cameras on they act like nothing is going on. I thought that was interesting to see that and how good he is at it. If people don’t like what he’s doing, he won’t get that corporate check.”
On if he thinks Jay is embarrassed about CARTERGATE:
“ I think if he cares then he’s probably embarrassed. If he doesn’t care then he should be enjoying it. Me, I wouldn’t care. I know how it feels to be bombed on. That n*gga bombed on me for five years straight, I just laughed at it. You saw how I handled it. Being that I went through it, I can be like that…I can say what I’m saying.
And Jay likes to play. He snaps.”
On if Jay was trying to holla at Rachel Roy:
“If he was tryna holla at my wife though, that’s kinda f*cked up. [laughs] 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.”
This isn’t the first time Dame has thrown a barb at Jay; right after the scuffle he posted a pic of Solange, admiring her “fighting spirit.” What’s your take on Dame’s CarterGate comments?
