(AllHipHop News) Dame Yesterday (June 25th), Dame Dash hinted that he would be willing to work with his old friend Jay Z for the 20th anniversary of Reasonable Doubt.
Jay Z’s debut album was released on June 25th, 1996 and the ownership of the album’s masters were split between Dash, Jay Z and Kareem “Biggs” Burke. On the 18th anniversary, Dash went to his personal Instagram account to voice his interest in working with Jay Z on the 20th anniversary in 2016:
Me and jay still own this together we might have to do a reasonable tour…maybe for the 20th anniversary…that way we could all make some money… I don’t see why he wouldn’t…might have to holla #freebiggs
While Dame claims that he owns the rights to Reasonable Doubt with Jay Z that will soon change. When Jay Z became President of Def Jam in 2004, a 10 year hold on his masters was placed that will expire at the end of this year. Jay Z will retain full ownership of his masters and publishing rights. Last year signed a deal with Warner/Chappelle Music to have them help administer the copyrights for Jay Z and other Roc Nation artists.
