Damon Dash Biography

Damon Anthony Dash is an American entrepreneur, music manager, media proprietor, actor, and record executive. He is best known as co-founder of Roc-A-Fella with Hip Hop billionaire Jay-Z and Kareem Burke.

There isn’t a lot of information about Dash’s parents.


Dash has not spoken about his mother.


Dash’s mother died when he was 15 years old. She died of an asthma attack. He has said he learned to hustle by watching his late mother. In the year of her death, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. He said in an interview with TheGrio, “I started to lose weight. I lost my appetite, I started urinating a lot. I lost a lot of weight, I started feeling terrible. I thought I had HIV. This was back when Magic had first announced that he had it. I just got sexually active. I really thought I was going to die for a good month or so.”

He finally went to a doctor, “They told me I had diabetes, and that all I had to do was give myself a shot and I could be better. I celebrated and I’ve been celebrating ever since.” He believed he’d been given a gift by a higher power after figuring out what was wrong with him.
