Born May 3, 1971 in Harlem, New York, Damon Dash was at one time one of Hip-Hop's most successful moguls. As Roc-A-Fella records sky rocketed in popularity, Damon saw his net worth rise to an all time peak of $50 million. Unfortunately, the good times did not last forever.
Dash attended private schools in New York and recognized his musical calling at an early age. His success as a record producer led him to branch out into other fields where he also enjoyed much success. He founded two clothing lines, Rocawear with Jay-Z, a highly lucrative brand that was eventually sold for hundreds of millions of dollars. When business was booming, Damon used his clout to branch into several other industries and businesses. Damon eventually branched out into film production, marketing, merchandise and talent management. His film company produced a number of noteworthy films, including "The Woodsman", which starred Kevin Bacon and "Paid in Full" which starred Mekhi Phifer.

Divorce and Financial Problems: Damon was married to Rachel Roy from 2005 to 2009. He was previously in a relationship with R&B singer Aaliyah from 2000 until her death in 2001. He met Rachel Roy when she was working as an intern at Rocawear. They had two daughters together. Their daughters led to a bitter custody battle when the couple divorced in 2009. Roy accused Dash of domestic abuse and was awarded sole custody as well as a three year restraining order and significant financial support.
During the divorce proceedings, Dash revealed to a judge that he owed $2 million in back taxes and was in the midst of foreclosure on two New York city apartments.
