After watching this interview, you kinda think to yourself "what am I really doing"

He's talking some real **** about owning yourself, being your own boss...

Is anyone here their own boss? What's that start up money looking like?

It's kind of hard to get in the game of owning your own if your not sitting on a lot of bread.

If that's the case, he doesn't want to take his company public. I guess he doesn't want to potentially expand his businesses at the same magnitude as Bill Gates, Jobs etc.

Semi jk.. It's just the way I think with my finance background. 

I love the "working for my last name" quote. I love the intensity on his strive to be successful.

Over the years Ive come to realize that dame is the ultimate ********ter, the more he talks the more I realize why jay separated himself from dame. He does nothing but contradict himself from the way he talks to the way he moves in real life. Everyone he has worked with says dame stole money from them(beanie sige, spitta, jim jones) but he will always back out of those convos with ******** answers just like a typical harem dude. Im sure there are people with jobs who have more money than dame right now, hell jay z took a job at def jam while having more money than dame.

Even if he did say he started with his own money. If someone fronted him drugs since he had no money. Technically he had a boss correct?

Dame is sexually insecure. The dude uses "pause" like a comma and always talks about "what man...." or "another man...."

Homie gotta be DL or something.


Also notice how he calmed down when Envy disclosed his salary :rofl: Envy with his "job" prolly got more bread than Dame.

Hov not ******* with this cat for a reason

Dang surprised this interview got its own thread. Especially considering we been discussing it in music since Friday.

Anyways Dame dropped some gems but he also contradicted himself several times (goes on a rant about how he not talking bout Jay then 30 mins later he is literally talking about Jay)

I respect Dame as a hustler and I would love to learn from him but I def take his advice with a grain of salt.

Definitely was worth watching the whole thing.

My only gripe with Dame was him claiming that he never had to work because he flipped... 

His son might be flipping three white t shirts in front of his store but he didn't get money to start a record label flipping some white t shirts.

Other than that I gotta agree with everything. We gotta be our own boss.

Just him saying all his money was legitimate had me like

I couldn't finish reading that. jeez :x

I get why Dame was mad when Jay was being brought up. I mean, Roc-A-Fella was done over 10 years ago and somehow it's still a topic. **** is over, get over it. I always loved Dame's entrepreneurial spirit and how he sonned Envy and Charlamane, eff what y'all say. Beside the rant, 90% of the **** he said is real

Dame is like those old heads who are always talkin about how they was the man back in the day movin weight sayin these young bucks aint doing it right tryin to give advice.

It aint back in the day any more lol.

Dame wont ever be relevant again unless he decides to do a reality show or dancing with the stars or sumthin.
