Jay-Z and Dash broke off their business ties around that time, with Def Jam buying out Dash's stake of Roc-a-Fella and made Jay-Z president. While many though Dash should have gotten the CEO position, he did get $10 million for his part-ownership. Jay-Z then bought Dash's stake in their clothing line, Rocawear, for $20 million as well.
