Dame Dash on Allegedly Slapping Harvey Weinstein: ‘Somebody Definitely Got Smacked’

Dame Dash is coyly pumping the brakes on a borderline urban myth that he put hands on exiled executive Harvey Weinstein for some allegedly sexist behavior. In the midst of November’s seemingly never-ending stream of Weinstein sexual assault allegations, Cam’ron took to the booth and claimed Dash slapped Weinstein for his allegedly foul behavior. The statement came in the form of one of Cam’s bars on the Diplomats track “Once Upon a Time.”

“No disrespecting the ladies word from my team/That’s the reason Dame smacked Harvey Weinstein/On the set of Paid in Full y’all gave him hell about it/Some foul shit happened once Capo tell ’em ’bout it…” Cam rapped.

When TMZ asked Dash if he indeed “smacked Harvey Weinstein,” he didn’t directly deny putting the proverbial paws on Weinstein. Dash seemed to dance around the answer like someone who was acutely aware of New York’s laws about physical assault and battery.

“I could say that somebody definitely got smacked on the set of Paid in Full,” Dash said. “I’ve never really liked the way Harvey treated my culture. I didn’t like the way he talked to people. I ain’t like the way he was treating my film. I’ve owned clubs with him, and a lot of things that were being alleged, everyone knew what was going on.”

Dame offered more, and if you can get past the casual shade he throws at Just Blaze and Wood Harris, the statement that “a lot of things that were being alleged, everyone knew what was going on” is particularly disturbing. 

Paid in Full was released in 2002, so there were at least a good 15 years of “everybody knew what was going on” before Weinstein had to face any consequences for decades of alleged sexual assaults. 

If you can read between the lines, Dash’s refusal to outright say he didn’t slap Weinstein combined with him claiming he got sued over the smacking (without mentioning the involved parties) leaves more questions than answers.

Harvey Weinstein Had a ‘Hitlist’ of Industry Figures to Keep Sex Scandal From Going Public

Harvey Weinstein reportedly had a “secret hitlist” of prominent film industry figures that detailed the extent of knowledge each individual had regarding Weinstein's sordid sexual assault history, and whether or not they intended on exposing him. 

First obtained by The Observer, the list is a detailed account of over 90 “actors, publicists, producers, financiers and others working in the film industry.” The list was reportedly compiled by Weinstein himself in 2017, and was meant to be used as a way for investigators hired by the movie mogul to target those who had information regarding his past. After pinpointing the individuals on the list, the investigators would report on the information collected to Weinstein and his lawyers.

Given the list was generated months prior to the New York Times article which initially exposed Weinstein, it corroborates the claim that many individuals in Hollywood knew of the producer's predatory malevolence. In the exposé written by Ronan Farrow for The New Yorker titled “Harvey Weinstein’s Army of Spies,” the journalist explicitly mentioned the robust network of lawyers and Hollywood elite who allowed Weinstein to get away with sexual assault for decades. Weinstein reportedly knew The New York Times was collecting information meant to expose him, which is likely one of the reasons he began compiling the list. 

According to The Observer article that broke the story, “More than 50 of the names have been colored red to highlight those who should be prioritised [sic] by investigators – individuals Weinstein most keenly wanted to target.” Some of the names highlighted include Rose McGowan, the actress who openly accused Weinstein of raping her, Laura Madden, and Sophie Dix. Somewhat surprisingly, a large portion of the individuals listed on the document are men, one of whom is the equally repulsive Brett Ratner, who has been accused of sexually assaulting numerous women, including actress Olivia Munn, over the last few weeks. 

What this detailed account of Weinstein's network demonstrates is the revolting level of complacency throughout Hollywood. As victims began coming forward to share their stories, it became implicitly apparent that many individuals allowed Weinstein to keep the number of allegations against him secret for years. As the accusations continue to mount, Weinstein has yet to issue a single admission of guilt, despite the recent discovery of his “hitlist.” His lawyers have yet to comment.
