2013 had several genuinely feel good moments (notably Nas’ response to J. Cole’s track “Let Nas Down”) and the reunion of Jay Z and Dame Dash is easily my number two favorite moment of this year. With both of them doing interviews speaking with no animosity of each other and video of Dame listening to “Magna Carta Holy Grail”, it seemed like this year would be the best time for these two to reconnect. Will this reunion begin them working together on music and other ventures again? Who knows. What I do know is seeing them together brought good memories of the Roc-A-Fella era back and that’s always welcomed.
Sidebar: I find it absolutely hilarious that Dame is checking his phone while J. Cole flicks it up with them LOL. That kid can’t catch a break sometimes.
