It's common knowledge that Dame Dash and Jay Z once worked together to found Roc-A-Fella Records alongside Kareem "Biggs" Burke more than two decades ago. The label gave the world classic albums from artists such as The Diplomats—as well as Cam'Ron and Juelz Santana individually—Kanye West, Jay Z himself, and many more. But soon Jay and Dame's dash began to fade before everyone's eyes, leaving many unanswered questions for fans.
Though we've heard Dash touch on these subjects before in past interviews, it appears he's ready to properly tell the story of Roc-A-Fella Records. According to the Deadline, Dash has plans to create a "brutally honest" TV series about the record label with executive producer Lemuel Plummer.
"It means a lot that Damon trusts us to tell the story—the true story—of how two global music icons got their start and did nothing less than redefine pop culture," Plummer said. The series will aim to show the early beginnings of the label, its legendary rise, Dash's relationships with Aaliyah and Rachel Roy, how things fell apart, as well as all of the unflattering details in between.
Plummer and Dash reportedly aim to make a limited-run TV series that isn't necessarily focused on the music, since the fans are already well informed about that. Instead, they hope to show a behind-the-scenes look at the entire story, and show Roc-A-Fella records to the world from a new perspective.
When asked about what music could be featured in the series, Dash told Deadline that he did plan to get as much music as he can get. "I know what I own, and there's a lot of different artists that would probably not have a problem with participating," said Dash. "And hopefully Jay doesn't either, but as of yet we haven't crossed that barrier. I'm not worried about that."
