Meet free daily Metro‘s newest business columnist: hip-hop uber-entrepreneur Damon Dash. He’s penning a monthly column for Metro‘s New York, Philly, Boston, Milan and Paris editions and let it be said: Dash likes talking about himself. A lot:
I could no longer keep making music about the same content. I tried to diversify my label by signing different kinds of artists, like Kanye West (who, by the way, I was told not to sign) and Samantha Ronson (who was as far from hip-hop as imaginable).
