Early Life of Dame Dash

There's a history of millionaires who have been selling newspapers to get food to eat and clothes to wear. Damon Dash was also on that list as he used to not just sell newspapers but also was a sweeper and worked at some barbershops to clean floors there and he was only 14 or 15 years of age at that time.

Dame worked harder and co-founded Roc-A-Fella record company with Jay-Z in 1996 and became a professional music producer, entrepreneur, and director making thousands of dollars out of every event/work. He worked with most of the famous artists of that time and on many films.

His life was suffering when his mother died of an asthma attack and he was a teenager without any other person to back his education or bring a good life to him. Soon after managing to live easily, he met Aaliyah who was a famous R&B singer in the 1999s. Dame and Aaliyah were in a good relationship when Aaliyah died in 2001 in a plane crash.

After getting out of that trauma, Dame got married to the fashion designer Rachel Roy. Damon had two children with Rachel Roy and this short-lived relationship ended with a divorce in 2009.

Career Of Damon Dash and his failure story:

If you are asking who is Damon Dash? we have a detailed answer for you under the heading of the career of Dame Dash and as a poor to rich and success to failure story of Dame Dash. Dame's career started to boost his net worth when a friend "Clark Kent'' introduced Damon to rapper Jay-Z who was in his earlier success soon after the meetup, 1992 with a good friendship, Kareem, Dame, and Jay-Z co-found a music company "Roc-A-Fella Records" in 1996 this one business venture made him $19 million with just one tour with Jaz-Z as a singer.

Dame was the CEO of this music company and also was a producer for a rap group called "Original Flavor", however, the company which made him millions "Roc-A-Fella Records" was a hip-hop music company and Kareem “Biggs” Burke was also a big name in that success that made Damon and Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter try more ways like Rocawear Clothing (Hip-Hop Fashion Line) and Dash Films (Roc-A-Fella Films) everything was going good till this date.

Success points of Damon Dash, also produced music for other artists like Victoria Beckham (wife of David Beckham a famous British footballer) and released a single "Let Your Head Go" that was a success and top of the charts in the UK at #3 ranking for a while. Then also the album "This Groove" by Victoria was released with Telstar Records in 2003 and it was produced by Damon Dash alone. With this, Dame also got Beckhams as the face of Rocawear Clothing in 2003 and it was a successful campaign.

Trying to do everything on his own, Damon founded "Dame Dash Music Group" in 2004 and also sold Roc-A-Fella Records to its new parent company "Island Def Jam Records". The deal was a straight $10 million and here Dame started to get into the failure of his life and their friendship was at the end at this point.

Dame did not stop there, he also sold his Rocawear Clothing stake to Jay-Z for $22 million to back his own clothing line, and guess what? Rocawear was rocking the industry with more than $700 million in annual sales and this decision to sell all the stakes to a farmer partner, made Damon Dash go down once again.

Without having experience in other businesses, Dame also sold everything (all of his business) and then started investing in other irrelative businesses such as "The Plumm" a New York nightclub, Armadale Vodka (a wine company), Dash Management, PRO-KEDS, and Tiret Watches. He also invested in a social networking website BlockSavvy and everything was not a good-to-go. As he was investing without any experience and without any type of guarantee.

Ending everything in losses, Damon Dash's net worth is around $10K to $100K and there's no growth but a straight down line as he is living without any business.
