He says "I grew up around music, listening to all types of people As long as I can feel their soul through the wax, that's what I really listen to. They're close to me.
It's not like running GMwhere there's no emotional attachment. The line was taken over by Jay-Z in early following a falling out with Dash. What was going through your mind at the time and after the call?
It came from nowhere. It was really heartbreaking. I had to deal with it myself before I let it out to anybody else. Let me tell you that tore me down. I had 19 years of living with myself, and that tore down every piece of confidence I had. I had to rebuild from scratch. Considering Jay-Z was a mentor to you, when you debuted and then to be dropped did you ever feel pushed aside watching Rihanna go through her success and seeing the way he mentored and supported her?
To be honest, I never felt like that, because we started at the same time when I was doing my first video. I think [Rihanna] did her first video the week after mine. We were really close together in coming out and the things we did. So going into the situation, we already knew of each other and we knew what it was. So me and Rihanna were like sisters on the road, we would do a lot of things together. We were pretty cool. I never felt like that. People always try to make it into a big situation, but I never felt like that.
I watched them work hard; we all did it together. Is there still a relationship at all with Jay-Z? There is no relationship there at all.

This is in any situation when you have success then everybody is on it, everybody is on board, everybody is rolling with it. But when you have something that fails to succeed, then everybody is off it; everybody has something to say about it. When you have something that is successful, people they look at all of the good things of the situation like they look over the bad things. I was totally against that. Jay-Z put out The Dynasty: Roc La Familia as a solo album.
Originally intended to be a collaboration project, it nonetheless featured heavy appearances by Beanie Sigel, Amil and Memphis Bleek, along with a Philly rapper Freeway guest spot that led to him being signed to Roc-A-Fella. Rather than return to Timbaland or Swizz Beatz for production, Jay selected beats from a new crop of producers: Each beat-smith would go on to become consistently involved in future Roc-A-Fella projects.
While Jay-Z remained the label's prominent image—with the acclaimed  release of The Blueprint and the closing of his trial for the stabbing of producer Lance Rivera  —other Roc artists began to gain popularity and acceptance. Amil's album, however, had lackluster sales. From toDamon Dash signed several artists in response to Jay-Z's talk of retirement after his album The Blueprint2: Rumors of friction between Carter and Dash became apparent; though denied by both camps at the time, problems involving Damon's media attention and Jay's alleged inaccessibility had been brewing since the video shoot for " Big Pimpin' ".
As President, Carter retained control of the Roc and his masters, ousting his 2 former partners. He later explained that he had offered to turn down the position and ownership for the masters to Reasonable Doubt alone: So I was like, let me get Reasonable Doubt and I'll give up [the rest of] my masters. Just give me my baby to hold on to so 10 years down the line, I can look back and I got something—I'm not empty-handed.
And I was the 1 being offered everything. I thought it was more than fair And when that was turned down, I had to make a choice. I'll leave that for the people to say what choice they would've made.
I don't really wanna talk about Dame or Biggs.
