Everything seems to be going well for Kanye West these days. First, he had a new baby girl named Chicago West to celebrate, and now his new Damon Dash movie is getting some solid buzz.
It looks like the reconciliation between Kanye West and Damon Dash is the real thing because ‘Ye held a private screening of Dash’s new movie Honor Up in LA on Friday.
Kanye was an executive producer on the film which will be released sometime later this year. Dash videoed much of the screening and got shots of some interactions between West and Pusha T among others that he posted on Instagram.
In the videos both West and Pusha T are wearing hoodies, socks and t-shirts with “Honor Up” emblazoned on them.
Much of the buzz surrounding the movie in recent weeks has centered around the role of right-wing wacko Stacey Dash‘s role in the film. When Damon Dash revealed that his cousin Stacey Dash was going to be in his new movie Honor Up the internet giggled. People were surprised because she had taken such pains to distance herself from black culture by proudly stumping for Trump on right-leaning platforms.
Jemele Hill, ESPN host thought it was particularly funny. She tweeted, “Well, well, look who’s back. Running right back to a black audience after working overtime to shame black people daily on national television. Well done.”
Hill went on to write, “I just find it really interesting Ms. Why Isn’t there a White History Month (yeah she said that) is constantly positioning herself with an audience she clearly despises, on some level.”
Judging by this screening this weekend it’s all love between Damon Dash and Kanye but cousin Stacey, who has been catching flack in recent weeks for her comments blasting Oprah over a potential presidential bid, she doesn’t appear to have been invited to the screening.
Honor Up will be released in February, and despite appearing in the trailer Dash herself has denied being involved in the movie.
“I’m sorry that my cousin Damon Dash is using our family relationship to advertise his movie. I have no written contract with him or Kanye West’s company (who I have had no dealings with at all). No one is authorized to use my name or photograph for ‘Honor Up.’”
