Def Jam also offered to make Jay Z its president, but Dash was opposed to the move (he also refused to relinquish the rights to Jay Z's debut, ).The label was called Roc-A-Fella, and it became the focus for a new wave of East Coast rap — in 1998 Jay Z's album The dollars were rolling in — and nobody was better than Dash at spotting further opportunities and capitalizing on them to the max.In 1999 he organized the 54-city Hard Knock Life arena tour, featuring Jay Z, DMX, Ja Rule, Redman, Method Man and Eve, which netted a -million profit.In the end the partners split — Jay Z went to Def Jam, while Dash retained Roc-A-Fella.But most of Roc-A-Fella's acts chose to follow Jay Z to Def Jam rather than remain with Dash, which the latter saw as a betrayal by artists who owed him their careers.
