ODB’s son criticizes Jay Z and says Damon Dash owes him money


Ol Dirty Bastard’s son YDB is not feeling the former heads of Roc-A-Fella Records for vastly different reasons.

During a recent appearance on Forbez DVD Live, YDB took issue with Jay Z wearing a chain with the Five-Percent Nation’s flag, but not spreading the message of the organization. He also alluded to Hov’s supposed affiliation with the Illuminati.

“We the only people talking about Illuminati,” said YDB. “I don’t see no country artists biggin’ up Illuminati…You got people like Jay Z in the game. You know, doing other stuff to other artists. You know what I’m saying? I could burn a bridge right now, but I’m telling you the truth…If he spreads this, which we are all his messengers, I don’t see nothing wrong with it. But if he says anything bad about it—And he not teaching nobody right now. Him and Beyoncé—Beyoncé’s a beautiful woman, but they not teaching nobody shit. All I’m trying to say is we here and we only here to teach. I’m Elijah Muhammad’s student, he had a lot of children and I’m putting a lot of babies on this planet right now.”

YDB then moved on to Jay Z’s former partner at Roc-A-Fella Records, Damon Dash. Shortly before his death, ODB signed to Roc-A-Fella and was recording lots of material at the time of his passing. His son feels Dash is not being forthcoming with the music his father left behind.

“Tell Dame Dash that I’m looking for him and I want those masters back right now,” YDB said. “Why we gotta go through the courts when we could do this man-to-man. We need to build about it and let’s get this thing right. He got my father’s songs and I want them back.”

And though he claims he’s not anticipating or hoping things take an ugly turn, YDB made it known that he’s essentially down for whatever.

“And I don’t hate Dame Dash,” he said. “I just want the money from Dame Dash. But if sh** get aggressive then sh** get aggressive.”
