Damon Dash Goes Against Mr. Establishment – Lyor “Liar” Cohen

We wonder why more mainstream blogs aren’t covering the issue between Damon Dash and Lyor Cohen? When it comes to artist vs artist beef the blogs eat it up. But when a man who makes his living in our culture is taken to task by someone born of our culture, the coverage is minimal at best.  Things that make you go hmmmmm….

 

Lyor Cohen recently made an appearance on the Breakfast Club. In the interview (below) Lyor talks about Migos, issues with artist, his history in hip-hop and more. When Damon Dash is mentioned, Lyor acts as if he has no idea who dash is (50:22 mark).

 

 

Damon had an issue with Lyor’s interview and his response to certain question Charlamagne Tha God posed. So he unleashed on the gram with multiple posts directed at Lyor. Since this is not an  op-ed piece it’s best to let Damon Dash’s words speak for themselves.  We compiled the best of his rant on Instagram below:

 

Thanks for this #liarCohen… for proving my point in true #culturevulture form…they make money off us and then try to erase our true history and act like the real ones never existed… not gonna happen bro…I benched you for the culture…enjoy your desk job at @youtube …your going down in history for who you really are…I made sure of that… @2mabasa how do you even work with this clown…look how he disrespect yours brothers #staytuned @culturevultures_book .. and y’all see he’s unapologetic…he pays his bills at the expense of us… big question is why can’t he sell any rock music?…why can’t he eat with his own culture?..stop fronting on my people like you mean something… your own culture laughs at you …

Then there were these little gems Damon released that we mixed together:

 

 

Last but not least there was this cherry on top:

 

Ah now I get it.. @google gave #liarcohen the #culturevulture 5 million dollars to start @300ent and he probably fucked that up so they gave them a desk job at @youtube and now he has to run around and do interviews so it seems like he’s doing something… never used your own money a day in your life and wanna act like a boss…please stop fronting on us..the gig is up…and I know what’s left of your crew is smacking your goofy ass in the back of the head… I just hope @google didn’t know about all of Lyor’s evil plans to try to figure out how to steel from the next generation of our culture… Lyor have your investor (boss) holla at me … #ceobeef #staytuned @culturevultures_book available on Amazon … @youtube holla at me if you wanna help the culture of music not hurt it…its possible @300ent cut that shit out

What do you think about Damon’s view of Lyor Cohen? Does he have a point or is he swinging in the wind?
