dame dash calls out kanye

Dame Dash and Kanye West have a very important history together as they both became famous and wealthy off of one thing — Roc-A-Fella. Obviously, today things are much different with the Roc than they were back then, and Dame is certainly on the outside looking in. In a recent interview with DJ Superstar Jay on Shade 45, Dame, along with Sen City, had some things to say about Kanye and the way he handled things when Kareem “Biggs” Burke, one of the co-founders of the Roc, was incarcerated.

At 3 different points in the interview, the 1:30, 9:50, and 11:35 mark, Dame specifically called out Kanye for not supporting and helping out with Biggs’ situation. And by the end of the interview, the tension was high. “Somebody call Kanye ask him if he lookedout for Biggs….I be seeing him spazzing out about bullsh*t — spaz out over the fact that you’re not looking out for Biggs or his kid. That’s what you need to spaz out about. Holler at me Kanye,” says a frustrated Dame.

Check out the 12-minute interview or those 3 different time marks after the break.
