Dame On The Scene

I'm sure by now you've heard about the BlakRoc Project that Dame Dash released on November 27th this year. Its a fusion of Rock (The Black Keys) and Hip Hop (11 artists including Mos Def, Jim Jones, RZA, Nicole Wray, and more). Well he's doing a lot more these days and by 2010 I think we'll be seeing a lot more of him and what he's doing. His Brand, Creative Control, is "A cutting edge online content label based upon the fundamental idea of maintaining creative control over all content and production from programming to advertising. Providing a new alternative to television with its online viewing platform and engaging content to unite our demographic through our communication and coverage of cutting edge fashion, music, and art."

On the Creative Control website you can see a lot of what he's doing. He's also working with up coming artist and Brands like GFC, Curren$y, Stally and more. He was recently in a XXL magazine article where they briefly mention what he's up to and to expect more in 2010. XXL: "We’ve seen Dame with Jim Jones, helping to promote Capo’s Pray IV Reign; still, most folks didn’t expect the cocky executive to be back on top. But now, with a host of projects—including his new Blak Roc, Creative Control, 24 Hour Karate School, DD172 production compound—one has to wonder: is Dame on to something?"

I'll say whatever he's doing it's looking and sounding good to me so far. I hope he keeps doing what he's doing because I want to see more of it.
For now enjoy this Short film from Creative Control...
