In an interview with Deadline, Dash announced a collaboration with producer Lemuel Plummer detailing the journey of Dash’s co-founded Roc-A-Fella label. Planned to be a TV series, the show will give a “brutally honest” look into more than just the musical aspects of the label. It sounds like everything from Jay Z’s Reasonable Doubt to Dash eventually leaving the Roc-A-Fella label and everything in between and behind the scenes will be covered. We don’t know much about the show for now, but the potential behind it definitely has our ears perked.
For those who don’t know, Roc-A-Fella was created to put out Jay Z’s Reasonable Doubt, which would go on to shoot Jay Z into superstardom. And the rest is history. In that same breath, getting to the point of releasing said album and the aftermath that followed is a story worth telling, given the racial and musical climate of the ’90s. Dash also confirmed the show would touch on his eventual departure from Roc-A-Fella after the label was sold to Def Jam (for which Jay Z would be become president).
All of this and seemingly more will be covered in the TV series. At the time of announcement, Jay Z hasn’t been confirmed to be involved in the series. With more and more shows cropping up about the histories and stories in hip-hop, Dash and Plummer might have something serious on their hands.
