Jay-Z and Damon Dash Reunite in New York! [Photos]
Rucuss staffAugust 8, 2013
Jay-Z and Damon Dash came face-to-face for the first time in almost 10 years.
The former business partners were photographed in New York City smiling and talking at the birthday party of mutual friend and business associate Chaka Pilgrim. Dash posted one photo of he and Hov hugged up with Pilgrim on his Instagram page, while a few more pics of the Roc co-founders popped up on the accounts of other party goers. Pilgrim used to run marketing for Roc-a-fella in the good ole days and still works for Jay.
The sight of the pair together created a buzz on social media websites. Although the two parted ways in business they don’t have any ill will to each other.
“I don’t think it’s an issue with him,” Dash told Combat Jack in an interview in April. “I just think we took different paths. I’m proud of everything that he’s done and I’m proud of everything that I’ve done since then. I feel like I’ve done a lot and whatever his dreams are he’s made them come true but my dreams aren’t the same as his. What I consider a win most people don’t. Life is about perspective. So my perspective on things is probably different than most.”
Jay also spoke about their relationship to Hot 97 personality Angie Martinez.
“The thing we built, you can’t take that away so no matter what, the love is still there,” Jay said in July. “Because what we’ve done will forever be stamped in history… We created something that’s gonna go down forever. So I can only have love for Dame.”
The photos don’t necessarily mean that the two will do business again. Check out a few more photos below.

Jay, Damon and Biggs created Roc-A-Fella records as an independent record label in the mid-1990s after the majors passed on signing Jigga. The two built a stable that produced stars like Kanye West, Juelz Santana, Memphiz Bleek and Beanie Sigel. They eventually parted ways on rocky terms in 2004.
