Jay-Z and Dame Dash Were Spotted Together For The First Time In Nearly A Decade This Week At A Birthday Party For Mutual Friend Chaka Pilgrim On Wednesday (07Aug13) In New York City And Judging The Smile Apparently Had A Lot To Talk About.
Reunited and it feels so good. After years of not speaking, Jay Z and Dame Dash, two of the original founders of Roc-A-Fella Records, laughed and shook hands at music executive Chaka Pilgrim’s birthday party in New York City Wednesday (August 7) night.
Dame posted the historic picture via his Instagram account and it went viral immediately. There they were, two former best buds and business partners, together again for the first time since their fallout back in 2005 that put the kibosh on one of the biggest movements in the history of the rap game.
With such an unexpected, monumental photo floating around social media, scores of fans rushed to chime in with their thoughts, which was overwhelmingly positive with hashtags like #Epic and #Historic thrown around as freely as dice in Dame’s signature dance.
Both Jay and Dame have spoken fondly of each other in recent weeks, acknowledging the role that both played in the others’ career.
Jay had nothing but nice things to say about his former business partner in a recent interview.
“No matter how many years I ain’t see him, the love is still there because what we’ve done will forever be stamped in history,” he told Angie Martinez. “I have ultimate confidence in him that he’ll find his way because he’s an amazing and really smart guy. He’s a hustler and he’s highly intelligent. I always root for him and always believe that he’ll find his way out of it.”
Beyoncé, Solange, J. Cole, and Adrienne Bailon were also among those who witnessed their reunion.
