New York City – It was a quiet and somber day on September 11th, 2002 at the Roc-A-Fella offices, as many of the workers thoughts were focused on the events that happened on this day, one year ago. While it was business as usual at the office, the staff solemnly reflected together at their lunch meeting.
“We shall never forget September 11, 2001,” said Roc-A-Fella C.E.O. Damon Dash. “On this day, one year ago, Jay-Z dropped a classic album, and made us a lot of money.”
While the staff all bowed their heads and held hands together for the special bonding experience, they did not forget about the tragedy of that fateful day.
“No, we didn’t go platinum that first week, and we did mourn the loss of over 300,000 sales, bringing a total first week sale to 700,000, but we still did very well, and we must always keep this in mind,” said Dash.
Reports say that Priority Records staff also held special services today, to observe the one year anniversary of the “Training Day” soundtrack, which also came out on September 11, 2001.
