In Mixtape Daily on Monday, Dame Dash announced that he’s re-launching Roc-A-Fella Records , with his first release being Curren$y’s Pilot Talk, which is due June 15. Dash also has plans to put out Ski Beatz’s 24-Hour Karate School mixtape on the label as well.
But what about bringing back a team that was affiliated with the Roc in their prime? Now that Cam’ron and Jim Jones are back on speaking terms and planning to release music together, would Dash bring the Diplomats back to Roc-A-Fella?
“Um, under the right circumstances,” Dash answered. “As long as everyone is happy, as long as the quality of living is never compromised, as long as everyone is on the same sheet of paper — of course. It’d be great. Anything is great under the right circumstances, but a dream could become a nightmare when everyone doesn’t have the same agendas. That’s just a general statement.”
Dash said that with Jim and Cam reuniting — at least personally, so far — the duo have set a great example for the music industry. He suggested that maybe he and Jay-Z should have followed a similar route.
“I’m more happy than anything that they’re friends — that they were able to salvage their friendship, if that’s the case,” Dame said. “I think they’re better than me for that: being smart enough and humble enough to apologize to each other and move forward. I really do hope that where I failed to be the right example, that they can be that. You always want the people ahead of you to do better than you anyway. For that, I gotta give them props for being men above anything.”
