Dame Dash Calls XXXTENTACION The Tupac Of This Generation.
Music mogul Damon “Dame” Dash opened up about his thoughts on the loss of rapper XXXTentacion. The hip-hop executive weighed-in on the fatal shooting, comparing
X’s tragic murder to the Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac. In an interview with All Hip Hop, Dame said,
“That’s not what we’re here for. But at the end of the day, that’s going to severely f*ck your money up. Because when people don’t feel safe at shows, then they’re not going to hire you to perform,” Dame said explaining death should never be a solution to any beefs. “So if you can’t think about it on an empathy level, or a humanity level, at least look at it on a business level. I remember we couldn’t perform until the Hard Knock Life Tour. We had to struggle and prove ourselves, and then that opened the doors again. It’s just funny how things go in cycles, and you could just feel it. Actually, I got it on tape. I was like, “Yo, it don’t feel right. It’s going to take somebody to get killed, for everybody to cool out.” And it’s sad that it was him. But he’s definitely going to be looked at from this 15 to 25-year-old generation as Tupac and Biggie.”
XXXTentacion was outside a motorsports store in the Miami when two armed men approached him in his car to rob him, and then fatally shot him.
