Dame Dash’s 2014 public statements have been mostly occupied with taking shots at what he calls “culture vultures” in Hip Hop, but the mogul turned his attention to one of his former Roc-A-Fella brethren in a recent interview. While speaking with Shade 45, Dame
called out Kanye West for not being more supportive of the Roc co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke after his incarceration.

I’m a little tight with Kanye because he hasn’t reached out to Biggs. I don’t like that s**t. So, Kanye, holla at me. I don’t like that s**t… Biggs was the one that was like, ‘Yo, Dame. Pay attention to what Kanye’s doing. Make sure you send him that music.’ No one’s reaching back. Certain n***as have, that’s why I’m not calling everybody out, but Kanye hasn’t. And he hasn’t checked on his kids. He hasn’t checked on his family. No trial. And the s**t I’m hearing him complain about is irrelevant based on the fact that he doesn’t look back to the people that helped him. So period, until he holla at me – we gotta have a conversation. Period.
Kareem “Biggs” Burke pled guilty to conspiring to distribute more than 100 kilos of marijuana in 2012. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Biggs played a huge part in the founding of Roc-A-Fella along with Dash and flagship artist Jay Z in 1995. Kanye was brought onto the roster in the early 2000′s.
