Quote of the week: Damon Dash

From John Heilemann’s interview with hip hop impresario Damon Dash, June 13 2007:

Dash’s new Web venture is BlockSavvy, a site aimed at what he dubs the “urban-lifestyle demographic.” When I ask what motivated this endeavor, Dash answers bluntly, “Money.” When I ask him to elaborate, he turns to [partner Kareem “Biggs”] Burke, who explains, “After MySpace sold for $580 million, we said, damn, we gotta get us some of that.”
