Jay-Z shouted out Dame Dash during his induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. After a long history of bad blood between the two, Hov opened the door during his speech. Now, Dame is ready to bury the hatchet.

Speaking to Page Six, Dame said that the 20 year long fight has gone on long enough. He’s ready to bring it to an end and interpreted Jay-Z‘s shout as an olive branch.

“It was beautiful. I’m glad he said it for the culture. We need to squash everything. So hopefully if that was an extended [olive branch], I’ll spin one back. I have no beef with [him] if [he has] no beef with me. Let’s get the lawyers out of it then. Let’s talk like men, but I definitely appreciate it.”

Jay-Z recently sued Dash after he attempted to sell Jay’s “Reasonable Doubt” as an NFT. The legal dispute may be the last barrier standing between the old friends. It sounds like Dame is ready to let it go if Jay will agree to it.

“I would never want you to think that we have to go to the court to resolve anything. We can talk it out and the culture needs to see two strong black men working out a problem. Even if they worked together, they can go their separate ways, they can still be cool.”

Damon Dash is a co-founder of Roc-A-Fella with Jay-Z and Kareem Burke. Dash has had other legal problems. In 2019, he was arrested for missing $400,000 in child support payments. He’s been accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife and sued for copyright infringement and harassment over the years.
