Well Damn! #CultureVulture Dame Dash Goes at Marc Ecko and VladTV

| March 24, 2015 | 0 Comments

The internet is still buzzing over the Dame Dash interview on the Breakfast Club over a week ago with hashtags like #Tweetlikedamedash. While the attention is surely still on Dame, he is not going to be a “chatty patty” as he is going hard after what he deems are ‘Culture Vultures’. People within the industry are exploiting hip hop for solely their own financial gain. Dash took to Instagram and posted this image of Marc Ecko.

The full caption reads as follows:

“This is Marc Ecko to me he is the fashion version of Lyor Cohen his Business [sic] model is make money off urban people. He did it in fashion but Ecko got corny fast now he thinks he’s gonna do it again with content…when @complex plays artist videos on their sites and all the artist content on@complex and @vladtv how come they get paid and the artist don’t?…there are commercials. I asked@vladtv and he said he was doing us a favor promoting our stuff while they got paid… Please don’t try to play the millennial generation I’m gonna at least give my culture the information so they don’t get robbed early and he doesn’t own @complex a hedge fund does he’s a nerd with a hedge fund who’s Business [sic] model is to Rob our culture#culturevulture no disrespect to complex staff yall always been cool wit me but your man is out of line and he’s a lame and I’m not just gonna talk about it im going to make a move on you and your whole company watch..

Complex is a media platform that Ecko founded in 2002. VladTV has been accused of instigating and creating beef in the hip hop culture and promoting it as news. Also in an interview with Hip Hop Motivation, Dash mentioned his interest in buying Karmaloop along with Kanye West which would be in competition with Complex. In the interview he also responds to the now infamous Breakfast Club interview and gives more light on being independent.
