Dame Dash explains why he called music industry exec Lyor Cohen a "culture vulture" on Instagram, telling VladTV that he believes Lyor should move on from Hip-Hop and "stop raping our culture." He then questions what Lyor and Joie Manda have contributed to Hip-Hop culture while holding higher positions at esteemed music labels. 

Speaking about his own interaction with Cohen, Dame says that he's never had a problem with Jay Z, and says Lyor "ruined" Roc-A-Fella Records. He also shares his thoughts on Lyor's new label 300, saying that he's probably "robbing whoever he's in business with." When Young Thug, who's signed to 300, is brought up, Dame says the label might not be taking the Atlanta rapper on a ride, because he's managed by Birdman. 

At the end of the interview, Dame says that he believes label execs like Lyor and Joie should be questioned about their roles. He also adds that he can't be blackballed by the execs, as they don't cut his checks.
