Roc-A-Fella CEO, Dame Dash, is reportedly scripting a TV drama that is said to finally reveal what caused the beef, or unraveling of his friendship and business partnership with Jay-Z. It will also reportedly disclose other details of his relationship with Aaliyah and behind the scenes dealings of running a record company.

If you've had the opportunity to listen to any of Dash's past radio interviews then you are very much aware of how much he despises speaking on the topic of his former Roc-A-Fella partner, Jay-Z.

The response given during his 2015 interview with Power 105 morning show crew, The Breakfast Club, is pretty much the standard response many receive from the entrepreneur when asking any "hot button" questions - especially about "Jay."

But, it seems Dash's "mums the word" approach to his standing relationship with the Blueprint rapper is about to change. According to Vibe, the former VH1 Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn cast member is developing a drama series, based on the "brutally honest" untold story behind the rise and fall of Roc-A-Fella Records.

According to the site, Dash and producer Lemuel Plummer have teamed up to "touch on" several details of "the movement" that was Roc-A-Fella Records and all parties involved.

"...Everything from Dash's relationships with Aaliyah and Rachel Roy," will be covered in the unofficial biopic according to Vibe.

Also included will be the details of how he and Jay started their business from the bottom with only a vision and watched that vision come to fruition. Ultimately they parted ways leaving them now as estranged business partners for well over fifteen years, as explained by Dash in his Power 105 interview.

"Everybody knows my history with Jay...get off of that man," stated Dash in 2015. "Ya never ask that man no questions about me. I just don't want to talk about those days...I haven't even seen Jay but two times in 15 years...I don't play these ghetto games. Once a n*gga has certain friends we don't even talk about him no more where I'm from."

Maybe his current stint on BET's Music Moguls has shifted his views of speaking out on that part of his life.

He has even extended the invitation to Jay-Z to join him on this venture as it relates to music.

"...there's a lot of different artists that would probably not have a problem with participating [with the show's soundtrack]," explained Dash. "And hopefully Jay doesn't either, but as of yet we haven't crossed that barrier. I'm not worried about that."

As of now, the show remains in the development stage and hasn't officially been added to any networks although, working with Plummer could present itself more helpful than not for Dash. Plummer is the CEO and founder of L. Plummer Media which has worked closely with several past BET series.
