Radio Facts: Radio Facts: Pop culture icon and one of the most “keeping it real” people you would ever want to know, Damon “Dame” Dash has amassed a treasure-trove of media since his career ignited in Harlem. Now the actor, entrepreneur, CEO and executive producer wants to make all of his own content accessible to fans with the launch of an on-demand streaming website similar to Netflix, accessible through DameDashStudios.com. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has followed Dame’s career, as he has always been one to have a plan.
Dash’s creative juices started flowing when he co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records in the mid-1990’s. “I have devoted my life to providing an authentic experience to pop culture without compromise,” said Dash. “Now my music, movies, documentaries and self-help training videos and books will be aggregated at a single, easy to access distribution point going live on Tuesday, September 1, 2015.”
Currently shooting in Wilmington, North Carolina, Dash is producing and directing “Mafietta,” a new television series based on novellas by E.W. Brooks starring London “Deelishis” Charles, winner of VH1’s Flavor of Love 2.
Kanye West, protege of Damon Dash since the early 90’s, joined him on production of the motion picture “Loisaidas” staring Murda Mook. Dash and West just released a new action-packed movie, “Too Honorable” featuring cousin, Stacey Dash (“Clueless”), Eishia Brightwell, Julito McCullum, Cam’ron, Nicholas Turturro, and Michael Rispoli. Dash is the director and has a featured role in the project.
He has opened media collective galleries in New York, Hong Kong, Charleston, and the newest one in Albemarle, North Carolina featuring showcase art and music. The new streaming service will be a broader, on-demand version of his galleries.
Dash has also been producing self-help videos based around organizational life skills such as research, planning, and effective decision-making. He has a series of interviews with entertainment notables, spiritual leaders, entrepreneurs and executives, motivational speakers and more. He is currently penning a new book, “Culture Vultures.”
While deeply involved in the business of entertainment and fashion, Dash is expanding his brand launching a German Riesling wine he calls Dusko Blu and he is introducing new spirit from Spain, Dusko Whiskey. He owns a motor oil company, Dash Motors and is launching an on-line teaching forum: PoppingtonUniversity.com
