Dame Dash stopped by “Sway in the Morning,” and he opened up about drama and relationships with many celebrities: Jay Z, Kanye West, Jim Jones and Lee Daniels.

Dash dished on suing Daniels, West leaving Roc-A-Fella with Jay Z, his beef with Jones and reconnecting with Jay. From AllHipHop, parts of the interview can be read below.On Suing Lee Daniels:

It’s about being paid. I put up $2 million. He asked me to do The Woodsman, and I put the money up… Me being perceived as this “urban” dude and [with movie executive] Harvey Weinstein pissing me off – I was like, “I want some of that money too”.

On West leaving Roc-A-Fella with Jay:

At the time, I had dropped Kanye to be honest. It was because of not agreeing with the way he was moving. That’s water under the bridge.

Then I gave him the opportunity like, “As a man, I signed you, so I’m gonna give you the opportunity. I’m not gonna walk away while you’re signed to Roc-A-Fella. If you want me to keep running your s**t I will.” I had already argued with him. I had already got at him like the old Dame Dash. We had already established we weren’t moving…

On issues with Jim Jones:

Jim is a creative that sometimes reacts in the moment. That’s what makes him creative. I’m not the kind of guy that looks at one thing that a person does and only concentrates on what that is as opposed to everything.

So I have to look at all the things that I’ve done with Jim and the things he’s done, and it outweighs those two emotional moments. But those emotional moments don’t reflect the way that I live and the way I react to things. That can be detrimental to the big picture. He’s the kind of brother that I’ll always love.

On reconnecting with Jay:

Those moments – there were two. One was [Chaka Pilgrim’s] birthday. They were real adamant about me coming to her birthday, because I love Chaka like a little sister. I don’t have a beef with Jay. I never did. We just approach business different.

The other time was with my daughter. We’re gentleman. We’re men. We’ve done a lot. Just because you don’t agree with a man, because you’re Black doesn’t mean you gotta fight or argue. You just have a different perspective.
