“Def Jam or Universal bought the brand. I think the ‘beef’ [with us and Jay-Z] was that Jay made it clear he didn’t want me or Biggs to be a part of it. That’s really where it was at. Now that he doesn’t work for Def Jam anymore, he doesn’t have the right to use the name. So there’s no reason for us not to use it. It’s there, and it’s a brand that’s not being used. So I was like, ‘I’ll take it.’ It always meant something to me.”

Dash said he and Curren$y are pushing a positive message about friendship and evolution.

“It’s a way more positive movement,” he added about the label’s new incarnation. “It’s what I wanted Roc-A-Fella, what I thought it should be 10 years after I started it.”

Dash said he secured the new deal through L.A. Reid and Def Jam, which will serve as a distributor for his records.

What is Curren$y saying?
It’s amazing what can happen when a man hits rock bottom and is forced to humble himself.
 
I wish them all the best of luck with this venture.
