Dame Dash Admits Steve Rifkind Checked Him Over Jewish Comments

Posted by

Dame Dash’s disdain for Lyor Cohen recently sparked an Instagram post about Jewish culture vultures, which didn’t sit well with one of his peers. According to Dame, Loud and SRC Records founder Steve Rifkind checked the Hip Hop mogul for the comments.

In response, Dame shared their text message exchange and clarified his original statement. The Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder reiterated his contempt for Cohen but assured Rifkind and his followers that he wasn’t being anti-Semitic.

“My Jewish brother @steverifkind checked me real fast cause that’s what men do when there is a misunderstanding,” he wrote. “to be clear the #culturevulture does not represent all Jewish people but all good Jewish people should help get him out of here because he’s giving y’all a bad name…my message is love and self awareness and I’m anti slavery of the mind…

“I want piece not war awareness and respect will avoid the war let’s all evolve together #honorablepeoplesticktogther #likemindedpeoplesticktogether no Disrespect ever to good people no matter what color you are …funny shit is I don’t see anybody from #liarcohen culture defending him only #careercoons …go figure.”

In his original post, Dame posted a video of Louis Farrakhan discussing how white people in the industry — particularly Jewish ones — exploit black artists. He used the clip as more fuel in his ongoing feud with Cohen, who Dame has routinely labeled as a culture vulture.

“@louisfarrakhan has been warning about this person for years,” he wrote. “I’m not gonna stop till #liarcohen the culture vulture of this generation quits @youtubemusic or gives me a fair one …I don’t care what #careercoon tries to defend him #ceobeef #doitfortheculture liar never send someone from my culture to do your dirty work…

“I’m calling you out.. holla at me merry Xmas #staytuned and no disrespect to any body Jewish this dude doesn’t reflect a whole culture just the Jewish culture vultures just wanna be clear this is not a black or white thing it’s a mentality thing the black culture vultures are worst the then the white ones.”

Earlier this year, Dame and Cohen’s issues resurfaced in the public eye when the latter appeared on The Breakfast Club. Despite working with Dame during Roc-A-Fella’s glory days, Cohen claimed he didn’t know him.

“Who’s Dame Dash?” the former Def Jam head honcho asked. “I don’t even know him. You’re bringing his name up, I don’t even know him.”

Dame responded by calling Cohen a culture vulture in interviews and social media posts. In August, he appeared on The Joe Budden Podcast to declare he “wants the smoke with Lyor.”
