Damn, I guess he really is broke. He might wanna reconsider ownership of the “Reasonable Doubt” catalog.

A bank wants his Tribeca condos, the city is seizing his SUV and his lawyer dropped him for not paying his legal bills.

It’s not easy being Damon Dash, has-been hip-hop mogul.

The co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records and Rocawear – who in 2005 sold his share in the clothing empire to Jay-Z for $20 million – is under assault in Manhattan Supreme Court from lawyers, lenders and landlords fed up with not getting paid.

The fall has been a dizzying one for Dash, who has gone from owning Keds, a vodka company and 1,300 pairs of shoes to dodging bills and accusing a former accountant of ripping him off for millions of dollars.

“I’ve worked with musicians, artists and entertainers that in the eyes of the media are very wealthy,” said lawyer Jason Gabbard, who represented a fashion firm that settled a suit against Dash and his wife over $148,505 in unpaid fees. “But to borrow a phrase from my Kentucky homeland, they haven’t got a pot to p— in – they’re broke.”

A Manhattan judge this week ordered the city to seize Dash’s Chevrolet Tahoe, since he wasn’t making the $714.99 monthly payment on the leased SUV. (more…)

In the early part of this decade, when people still cared about Harlem’s the Diplomats, Jim Jones was known as the crew’s capo, the cartoony second-in-command to Cam’ron. But in 2006 Jones shifted to the spotlight with his hit single “We Fly High, then, to the surprise of most people familiar with his music, managed to parlay the modest success into a jump from independent Koch Records to a 50-50 deal with Columbia. Which makes sense given the support of Damon Dash, who’s been as active a partner in the “Jim Jones for Superstar” movement as Jones himself — together, they’ve worked on a documentary, a coffee-book travelogue, a workout DVD, and … a play! Before tonight’s closing performance of the Hip Hop Monologues, a slightly ill-advised (we saw it) stage adaptation of Jones’s life story, Vulture spoke with both Jim and Dame to figure out just what, exactly, they were thinking.

Could you see that Dipset was falling apart, that Cam’ron wasn’t going to maintain his place in the industry?
Jones: I just know there were a lot of things going on. You find out who really wants to be around one another once money comes into play. See, for a minute, it was one-sided. He was the breadwinner, obviously. For the most part, I was just trying to stay above water, because I wasn’t in the streets hustling anymore. I finally figured out what I needed to do to get enough money to control my own destiny in the industry. [But] we were like brothers. That was a hard blow. They see [Cam] in Harlem all the time and stuff like that. I don’t think he’s hiding underneath a cave or anything like that. But the communication between us doesn’t exist. (more…)

To me, this is his best song …

[youtube Wl54ABY8VgY]

Here me out. It’s a tough call between this and ‘gotta keep ya head up’ which essentially ties similar themes of mistreatment/abuse/disrespect towards women but also speaks on larger societal issues. I think most people would put that song as his best but I think in ‘Brenda’ – tupuc put a very strong concentrated message that really hits you deep to your bones about a specific story about a girl (one we may have know ourselves) that is a reflection (microcosm) of the larger societal issues facing our society.

Dear mama is also the same way.

What’s interesting is that ‘keep your head up’ perhaps is a better sample of who tupac really was if someone never heard any of his songs because it carries all the themes he later perfected in his other songs.

For instance, in keep your head up, he mentioned abuse toward women (perfected in Brenda), (more…)

I’m heard too many arguments that he’s a kid at 17 and what else should be be rapping about at that age. Well, this should conclusively end that argument:
