Co-founder of Roc-a-Fella records, Dame Dash, shared an Instagram photo of himself proudly rocking his belly on the set of a movie. The business mogul who recently launched a clothing line continues to make his mark in Hollywood after going separate ways with Jay-Z, his former business partner.
In the photo shared by Dash, the "Honor Up" actor is wearing a shirt and a waistcoat, both unbuttoned. He has on two necklaces- one beaded and the other silver- dangling over his chest, where the most of a tattoo is visible. The dad-of-three completes his look with square-rimmed sunglasses, and he holds on to a cigarette stick and gas lighter.
Judging from Dash's caption, he wasn't prepared for the picture:
"#wifeyforlifey @raquelmhorn caught me on set changing...promise I’m not posing! #investinwomen #staytuned @tiffanyandco ...also I made this suit ... #neverofftherack"
His comment section was filled with various categories of advice, from those calling him a legend to those expressing concern over the cigarette.
"Proud of all your hard work and success brother...you are a true inspiration of a free mind and a spiritual thinker @duskopoppington thank you for the motivation...peace!"- @mindofthegods
"smoking is bad for type I diabetes @duskopoppington as i's sure you know"- @marilynjoyce66
"@duskopoppington dont let the troubles of this physical world cause you to go against your spirit! (Cigarettes are a soul killer) I have watched you as a fan since you and Jay! Watching you as a man and listening to your BOSS advice Has help me much! Keep up the progression of yourself! Without souls like you in this world many including me would be kinda lost! Peace@- @klmofny_
"This body shaming is on high!! He looks like the average man that chills. I'm sure he have a gym. Maybe his "gut" tells a different story like stress."- @simplee_eunique1
Impromptu picture nonetheless, Dash still informed his followers that he made the suit. He recently launched his clothing line called Poppington clothing. His partner of 10 years, Raquel Horn, is also his business partner and serves as creative director. Horn has also taken up the role of producer in some of Dash's movies.
When Dash launched Poppington, his children were his first models. Damon Dash II and Ava Dash proudly wore their father's merchandise and shared the photos on their social media pages. Damon and Ava are not Dash's only children though. Ava has a sister, Tallulah. Dash shares both girls with ex-wife, Rachel Roy.
Speaking about his Poppington label, the "Rocawear" co-founder observed: “What I’ve been noticing with the millennials is that they’ll pay for quality. You can sell something and make your full margin. There’s never off-price.”
