Dame Dash‘s money issues and legal troubles have made for interesting headlines over the last several years. The former Roc-A-Fella Records CEO is again being targeted by an individual with an axe to grind. Young Dirty Bastard, the son of the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard, is attacking Dash in the media over a dispute involving his father’s recordings. Just months prior to his untimely death in 2004, ODB was signed to Dash’s Roc-A-Fella label. The signing was controversial at the time because Ol’ Dirty Bastard had just been released from prison and his loved ones felt that he was in too fragile a state to resume his recording career.
Now, Young Dirty is claiming that Dash has ODB recordings and he feels that he is owed his father’s music. During a radio interview with Shade 45, Young Dirty Bastard blasted Dash, claiming that he is withholding an album’s worth of material and also owns other rights to his father’s music.
“Tell Dame Dash that I’m looking for him and I want those masters back right now,” the 24-year-old told hosts J.Medina and Money Nels.
Young Dirty, born Barson Jones, even said he doesn’t want legality to determine the outcome of the dispute.
“Why we gotta go through the courts when we could do this man-to-man?” Young Dirty said. “We need to build about it and let’s get this thing right. He got my father’s songs and I want them back…he had a nice size album and I want it.”
