Damon Dash talks about his last conversation with his ex-girlfriend Aaliyah before her untimely death on “The View”.
“Well, there is no chance that if I was there, we would have been on that plane. You know what I’m saying? So, it would have never happened that way. Um, you know, Aaliyah and I was in Miami and she was shooting a video in Miami. And I was in Miami with uh State Property. And she was gonna do a record with Freeway and you know, Hype had decided that he wanted to take the video to the Bahamas. And my son had a football game and I had to go back to New York for court. And I had all my nephews with me as well ’cause I used to roll with them. ‘Cause you know, I’m a single father and I had my son Boogie since he was eight. You know what I mean, I had to go to court and get him whatever. So my whole world kind of revolved around him, so I broke out to go back to New York”
“She told me she was going to the Bahamas and I was against it like, “Yo, don’t go.” And then down to the last, we had the Blackberry, down to the last Blackberry that we had, before she went there, she was like, “Yo, I don’t like that plane.” And I was like, “Don’t get on it.” And she was just like, “You know, I gotta do it.” You know, it was a complicated situation, but she had to go do that video. So you know if I was there, I would have made sure that that jet that was supposed to be for her, the g4, she would have been on that. I wouldn’t have got on that plane, you know what I’m saying? So it probably would have been different. But you know um, everything happens for a reason. You know, and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and you just gotta deal with the cards that life deals you.
