What's Damon Dash Been Up To?


Glad you asked. <--just play along. Damon Dash just opened a vintage clothing store in New York...

Dame's store, called The Local 172 Trading Post, will carry lines from Ralph Lauren, Pendelton, LL Bean and Woolrich [what? No House of Dereon?]. The Local 172 Trading Post is scheduled to open March 26 in the same Tribeca building Dame houses his art gallery and recording studio.

Beyonce Knowles said...

I don't want his old one day worn socks, or his ex-wifes un-sold fashions.

Dee Truth said...

vintage store, art gallery, and studio?

I certainly can't knock the man for getting his entrepreneur thang on.

I wish him luck!

Carry on, brotha!

Hey Dame, can I buy a suit like the one you got on at your store??

Bee Gee said...

I aint mad at Dame - brotha just tryna pick up the pieces of the broken Roc JayZ busted him over the head with, and glue em back together..

Bitch, its a economic recession going on in this country. If we want vintage clothes, we can in the back of our closets and find some vintage shit.

Still got my Members Only jacket from 1981 and my straight-leg dark wash Levi's from 1987.

...Y'all hear that? What's that, you ask? It's the sound of Dame Dash quietly closing the doors of his vintage closing store in 5, 4, 4,... days.

^ 5, 4, 3,...days.

@11:38 AM: You're right on that one.

In NYC, a good vintage store with the right inventory CAN do well.

I used to shop in vintage stores myself.

It's not always about being broke, either.

Sometimes you may want to create your own style or maybe you're tired of wearing what everyone else is wearing and want something NO one else is rocking or thought about rocking at the moment.
Something original, even if it's throwback.

You can get good deals too, and those stores tend to last forever.

My old store in the city is still around after all these years(over 20).

I'm not postitive, but I think some stylists may shop at vintage clothing stores for their clients, too.

Vintage my ass, this n*gga selling off them damn overpriced, ugly ass clothes he wasted his money on. art gallery? what dis fool know about art, I know damn well ain't no Basquiat, Khalo, LaShun Beal,Michael Brown, Ernie Barns or Picasso for that matter. kangay stick figures don't count he's only a genius legend in his own mind. studio? when the last time this n*gga had a hit record? I don't need a crystal ball to tell me how this is going to end.

Good Luck..Been 'der

jazz said...

@NubianGoddez:
Ernie Barnes, Basquiat, LaShun Beal.
***
You just dropped three of my faves right there.
My Aunt introduced me to Beal.

I think he could do well if he chooses the right location for his gallery and has the right connections.
He obviously needs the right works, too.

If he carries the right pieces his vintage store could also do well.
Again, he needs the right location cuz not every NY'er wears or even digs vintage gear.

I can't call the studio sitcha'ation...

This 3.4 broke ass nigga aint fooling nobody with using the word ( VINTAGE ) in for the store.
Nigga call it what it is.. GARAGE SALE!!

Its nothing other than the shit your ass bought when you were MINI RICH before running your mouth,fuckin up, and getting put on,(BITCH-NIGGA-BLAST) BY JayZ.

Nigga aint nothing but a PAST ATTENTION MAN-WHORE

YO DAME! And make sure to sell that old ass PUNK-STRIP SUIT. $3.99 OKAY $4.00 even. i was trippin.

Anonymous said...

Who wanna bet that this BASTARD so called ART that he will be selling is pictures of

Aaliyha and he took together. Remember not too long ago this MAGGOT tried to use her name to gain money. DD, Your simple ass is through in this world.(Jayz) made sure of that. What you should do is try applying at your nearest record store and ask if they're hiring for a clerk posistion and sell records that away.. (CTFU)

@10:34 p.m. His ass is a few blocks away from applying for government assistance. This kneegrow fell from eating Sirlon, Ribeye Steaks to Government Cheese Sandwiches. ( Dame DONT FORGET TO GET A BOX OF EXLAX ) I hear that cheese aint no joke to the stomach and bowels.

NAA: Your comment was hillariously on point. He's trying to nickle and dime himself back to the top. Vintage huh....that's just another name for old sh!t. I'm an artist and I sent his gallery a package of my artwork and I never heard jack. Probably stole my sh!t and then sold my sh!t. FAST SH!T TALKING ASS LOSER!
