Biography

Damon Dash (born May 3, 1971) is an American label executive; the co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z and Kareem “Biggs” Burke. Roc-A-Fella, specializing almost exclusively in hip-hop music, branched out with several spin-off ventures into other fields as well, notably hip-hop fashion (Rocawear Clothing) and many films (Roc-A-Fella Films and, later, Dash Films).

As well as his work with Roc-A-Fella Records, he was also known in Europe for his ambitious project with pop singer Victoria Beckham. He produced an album worth of hip-hop inspired tracks for the pop star in 2003 which culminated with the release of her double-A sided single “This Groove/Let Your Head Go.” which reached #3 on the UK charts. After public disputes with her manager Simon Fuller of 19 Management over the “urban sounds,” Beckham’s album “Come Together” produced by Damon Dash was eventually shelved. Tracks featuring Cam’ron, M.O.P, and other members of Cam’ron’s Diplomats crew had been leaked on the Internet, Beckham was the face of Rocawear in 2003.

In late 2004, Dash sold his interest in Roc-A-Fella to parent company Island Def Jam Records for $10 million, and founded the Dame Dash Music Group as a new venture with the senior record company.
