On The 10th Anniversary Of Her Death Dame Dash Remembers Aaliyah

 

When Aaliyah died on August 25, 2001 in a plane crash in the Bahamas, she left behind grieving fans, family, and fiance Dame Dash.

On the eve of the 10th anniversary of her death Dame opened up to The Juice about his life with Aaliyah, and how devastating losing her was.

"She was intelligent and she caught me," Dash tells The Juice. "I'm the kind of guy who says things sometimes just to make myself laugh, but she would just catch me making jokes for me. I couldn't get anything past her. She had a very quick mind and a very kind heart."

At the time of her passing the 22-year old Aaliyah's acting and singing careers were skyrocketing. And Dame was still running Roc-A-Fella Records, so the couple spent a lot of time apart. But Dame says that when they were together everything was perfect.

"The energy we created together for people to observe was kind of crazy. We'd be in a room full of people talking to each other and it felt like everyone was listening but it would be just us. It would be like we were the only ones in the room," Dash says. "It was like something was going down in history every time I was with her. Every time I was around her I felt it was the place to be. Our time together meant so much that when we got more time, we felt like that [engagement] would be next. She was one of the best people I ever met. Even with the pain I felt, I would do it all over again."

Some of you lames are ignorant, its a well known fact that before Aaliyah died her and Dame were an item..its even documented that Aaliyah was part of the reason that Dame and Jay started falling out because Jay liked her but Dame was the one who got her..some of you are too young to remember...80s babies.

Dame is lying his a** off. He didn't care about Aaliyah. He set her up as a blood sacrifice to gain more money & fortune & Jay Z, big lipped a** still f****** him over leaving him with nothing..Call me crazy but that's the truth.
