Looks like Dame Dash got the ROC back…Dame has secured a deal with Def Jam (who owns the label) to  run and sign artists to the label and revive Roc-A-Fella. Dame first signee? His new homie from New Orleans, Curren$y. Dash plans to make Curren$y’s Pilot Talk the label’s first new release on June 15 & the first step in resurrecting Roc-A-Fella Records. So do you think Dame can bring back the ROC? Or competitively contend with Jay-Z’s new Roc (Nation)?

“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.”
