The once very rich Dame Dash is now fighting to keep a roof over his head, losing more than just power in the rap industry.
According to NY Daily News, Dash claims that his mounting debt has once again reached the footsteps of his home and faces imminent eviction from a rented mansion in suburban Carmel, New York.
In a 5-page report Dash filed on Tuesday the former Roc-A-Fella Records head claims, “I am currently several months behind in paying my personal bills,” he wrote. “For instance, I am currently over $100,000 behind in rent for the only home in which I live and at risk of being evicted.”
Dame Dash lost a pair of multimillion-dollar Tribeca lofts to foreclosure in 2010, which included $7.3 million left on massive mortgages.
A 2004 split with his former wife Rachel Roy smacked Dash with a $20 million windfall and eventually left the 42-year-old facing hard financial times.
Court records also show that Dash lost numerous lawsuits filed by landlords, fashion designer Charlotte Ronson and a celebrity bodyguard firm.
According to Dash’s court filing, he faces possible criminal prosecution for not paying his New Jersey taxes. Documents show Dash also owes more than $2 million in state taxes to New York, and he admits to owing federal income taxes as well.
A picture posted on Reddit this week, which appears to show Danny Brown receiving oral sex from a fan during a Minneapolis performance, has quickly begun to make its way around the internet. While the Detroit lyricist has yet to comment on the incident, Kitty Pryde, the rapper’s best friend and fellow artist has shared her thoughts on the bizarre incident in a blog post on Vice.
Kitty, who’s currently on tour with Brown, revealed that the incident is rarely ever brought up and when it is it’s grudgingly referred to as “The Thing.” She also referred to the woman’s act as a “sexual assault” on the rapper.
“I will also say that whoever wrote on Reddit that Danny was ‘walking around the stage getting girls to grab his dick’ is 100% false, and to blame someone for their own molestation is a shitty thing to do,” Kitty explained. “Anybody who is exaggerating this tale to climax is also a lying fool, and to call it a blow job is even going a bit far because it was probably the fastest thing I’ve ever seen. ‘The Thing’ was not a thing that Danny facilitated—it was an actual sexual assault, and somehow nobody gives a fuck about that but me.”
The “Okay Cupid” rapper further commented on the incident being a sexual assault as she brought up the topic of why the female fan that allegedly performed oral sex on Brown hasn’t been contacted.
“Why doesn’t Ricky Smiley or whoever just talk to this girl,” she questioned. “I know why. It’s because everyone wants the option of blaming it on Danny, because people can’t accept the fact that a white girl raped a black dude in front of a bunch of people.”
Though artists like Big K.R.I.T. continue to use free projects to get their music out, not every emcee agrees with that business model.
In an interview with The Come Up Show TV, Sean Price revealed that he is against handing out music for free. “That ain’t a diss to everybody, because some little dudes make dope music,” explained P! “I just don’t…I’ve had studio sessions where I’ve made four songs. But I’m gonna put it out when I’m ready to. I don’t actually believe in giving out free music. I think that sucks, b. I’m gonna bust my ass to make this music. It might be free to y’all, but I had to pay somebody to get this stuff. I don’t believe in free music. You got to cop this, bruh.”
Interestingly, Price admitted that bootlegging was inevitable, and that it doesn’t bother him that much. “Just wait long enough and steal it later. You can’t stop bootlegging. I just try to put a stop to it when it first come out. But after a couple of months, go with what you know.
Price also listed his favorite projects of 2012. “I feel like me, Roc Marciano, and Kendrick Lamar put the illest albums out. Straight up.”
With both the popularity of “U.O.E.N.O.” and the controversy surrounding the record, the song’s creator, Atlanta rapper Rocko, has found himself in a position where he may “have to change” the record if he hopes to take the song to mainstream radio.
Rocko spoke on the record, which has been engulfed in controversy thanks to Rick Ross’ verse, during an interview with New York City’s Hot 97 earlier today.
“The record instantly became a smash over the All-Star Weekend and stuff like that. It just became a smash in the streets. So with me, I feel like I’m a street artist so I feel like the record with Ross that will always be the original record,” Rocko explained. “But because of the type of attraction the record has as far as like radio and all over the country and things of that nature it puts me in a position to where I have to change it.”
The “U.O.E.N.O.” crafter later revealed that there are quite a number of artists who have recorded verses for a new version of the song. Among those artists is Young Jeezy who Rocko confirmed did pen a verse for the song but couldn’t confirm if the rapper will in fact appear on the updated version.
“In life you have to put everything on the scale,” said Rocko. “You know what I’m saying? If it’s not weighing up then you just have to do what you have to do. With all respect to the homie Ross…It’s crazy because it’s a Catch 22. Cause it’s like I don’t want to take him off…It doesn’t matter who I put on the song that’s gonna always be the original version of it. It’s not like I can do another verse and be like, ‘Okay, this the original right here.’”
Lupe Fiasco had his hands full earlier this week at the University of Cincinnati when someone in the crowd threw a glow stick at the Chicago rapper, hitting him in the head.
In response, Lupe had the music cut, and addressed the person who threw the glow stick. “Listen, hold up two seconds we’ll get back to the show, listen. I know you a jerk, and that’s cool. I know that you came hear and you thought that ‘I’ma get some shine real quick and throw some shit at Lupe and hit him in the face.’”
Lupe continued, letting the crowd know that he had not one, but four black belts in martial arts. “But, let me remind you of something, okay? Hold on y’all, just hold on. We gonna get back to the show… Let me remind you something…you see this waist? This waist right here? There used to be four black belts around this waist.”
Lupe continued his in-show rant, letting would-be challengers know that he’d be happy to shoot the fair one with anyone. “So listen, Everybody that wanna throw some shit, kindly step over to the side of the stage….and I’ll give you five minutes of fame here. I’ll seek whatever you want from this show to make sure they don’t get your broken up ass outside of jail.
“In the words of Jay-Z, ‘It ain’t a movie dog,’ don’t get fucked up,” added the tough-talking rapper.
In 2011, Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator was hit in the face with a soda bottle, and briefly stopped his concert as well.
Early this morning, 1990s mixtape legend former Def Jam/Roc-A-Fella Records star deejay DJ Clue was arrested this morning.

Brooklyn, New York’s Talib Kweli recently weighed in on an issue concerning Lil Wayne. In an interview, Kweli opened up about why he feels Weezy should apologize to Emmett Till’s family for a line on one of his records.
“My opinion is that I think that Lil Wayne should apologize to the Till Family,” Kweli shared in a talk with AllHipHop. “But, its not for me to say; its for him to do. That’s what I would do. That’s what I think is the smart thing to do, especially since you apologized to LeBron [James] for the Miami Heat thing. But, from my perspective, wherever he’s at with it in the world and his mind space is that the surroundings around him are not necessarily making him aware that he needs to apologize to the Till family. But the surroundings around him are making him aware that, ‘You know what? You live in Miami. You should apologize to the Heat.’ Do I think that’s a little backwards? Yeah. But, I think that it’s a little hypocritical of us to put that squarely on Lil Wayne’s shoulders.”
Kweli continued explaining how “we as a community gotta take the blame.”
40 Glocc sued Game last October for an assault incident that took place in July, and now, the details have been revealed regarding the financial terms of the suit.
According to TMZ, Glocc sued the Compton, California rapper for a staggering $4.54 million. He is suing Game for: $500,000 in pain and suffering; $500,000 in emotional distress; $750,000 in lost earnings; $2 million for punitive damages; $25,000 in medical expenses; and various other reasons.
The initial incident took place last July, when Game beat Glocc outside of a mansion in Hollywood, California. Glocc claims Game and his 15-men entourage jumped him and filmed the beating, which left him with major injuries to his right eye, ribs, kidneys, right shoulder and back. He also sustained wounds on his face, head, legs, arms and hands.
Glocc sued for assault and battery, as well as damaging his reputation. Since then, Glocc has gone on a smear campaign against Chuck Taylor, releasing his diss “The Full Edit” in December. Game has similarly addressed the situation in several interviews, claiming that filing a lawsuit of this nature “disintegrates your street cred.” At the top of the year, Glocc also claimed that he knocked out Game’s manager.
Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel has been sentenced to additional time in jail for last year’s drug arrest.
According to Philly.com, Beans was sentenced to an additional six to 23 months in jail stemming from his August 2012 arrest for possession of a controlled substance. The former Roc-a-Fella emcee is currently serving out a sentence for tax evasion.
As DX reported last year, Sigel was arrested for possession of codeine, prescription pills and a small amount of marijuana. Police were tipped off when the car in which Beans was travelling at the time began swerving between lanes and tailgating another car.
During the initial search, police also found a loaded handgun in the center dashboard of the car. Although the gun charges against Sigel were later dropped, the driver of automobile Gerald Andrews was sentenced to two-and-a-half to five years in prison for possession of a firearm.
As previously mentioned, Beanie Sigel is currently serving a two year sentence for failing to pay more than $728,000 in federal taxes dating back to 1999.
Machine Gun Kelly has announced his upcoming mixtape Black Flag, which is currently without a release date.
The project, which serves as his first body of work since last year’s debut Lace Up, has already spawned the song “Champions” featuring Diddy that touts the same instrumental from The Diplomats’ “We Are the Champions.” He also released the DIY video for the track and will include the cut “Peso” featuring Pusha T and Meek Mill on the tape.
The Bad Boy rapper previously spoke with Rap-Up.com about the project, stating that he feels reinvigorated to record. “I felt like I nearly got dropped from my label and felt this hunger that I hadn’t had in a long time, and I just put it in words,” he said. “I felt like I wasn’t a problem in the game yet, and now I feel like, ‘God damn.’ I’m so fucking stoked on this tape.”
MGK previously released Lace Up in October 2012. The LP bowed at No. 4 with 57,000 copies sold.
