Dame Dash - "Biggie was gonna leave Diddy and come sign with Roc a Fella"

Post by HarlemWorldATL » March 20th, 2017, 11:41 am

Music mogul Damon “Dame” Dash may have just dropped the biggest hip-hop shocker of all time. The former Roc-A-Fella Records co-owner revealed late rap icon Notorious B.I.G. planned on joining his record label.


In a recent interview, Dame Dash said Biggie Smalls wanted to eventually leave Bad Boy Records to join longtime pal Jay Z at the Roc.

“Biggie’s plan was to give Puff and them like three more albums because that’s what his deal is, then come sign with us, and we was gon’ do The Commission. We were looking for like a Charlie Baltimore, it ended up being her, that wasn’t our choice that was his. But, you know, that was what was gonna happen, or at least that’s what was talked about very seriously. I think that’s why he did a double album. Then he was gonna do a triple album, and he was gonna be out his contract, and then he was gonna come f*ck with us. I tried to sign The Firm but then Steve Stoute snaked us for that.” (Hip Hop Motivation)

It was gonna be under UN I think Dame just fishing for attention again. Unless it was gonna be a collab where it was under both Untertainment/Rocafella but I can't see Diddy being apart of the group and being under other labels when he owns one. Untertainment/Bad Boy would of made more sense and if Big was a live I could see him leaving Diddy eventually for his own label and taking Jay out of Rocafella and under him.




"In the Life After Death track “What’s Beef”, Biggie introduces the members of The Commission before he lays to rest any disillusioned rappers who think ‘real beef’ involves a diss song:

[The Commission]:
Uncle Paulie, P. Diddy, Caesar Leo DeGenero
Charli Baltimore, Iceberg Slim
The most shady, Frank Baby

If you break down the lyrics, “Frank Baby” is a reference to Biggie’s nickname, “The Black Frank White”. The Frank White alias derived from the 1990 crime thriller King of New York, which starred Christopher Walken and featured the story of a drug kingpin. Iceberg Slim was a reference to Jay Z and Uncle Paulie referred to Lance ‘Un’ Rivera. Caesar Leo DeGenero stood for Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s Lil Cease and Charli Baltimore would keep her original rap name and serve as the first lady of The Commission. This is also the first time that Puff Daddy’s other name P. Diddy was first seen in a lyric, before he eventually became P. Diddy in 2001."

Nobody seems to bring up anymore Big, Jay and Charlie got unreleased tracks they recorded to this day that probably never will get released. I remember hearing rumors back then Jay stabbed UN over Charlie Baltimore but not cause of the reasons Cam says. Had more to do over the Commission which Jay wanted to happen even after Big death and he didn't like how he was handling Charlie Baltimore album or his plans on releasing the unheard tracks. He felt UN was about to f*ck up something historic.... Never heard those rumors online just from other people in the the industry at the time....Have no idea if that was true though

He wouldnt of signed with Rocafella directly as in him being under them. But I could see him absorbing them into his own label. Still think he would of left Puff though when his contract was up.
