Movie Info

An ambitious white reporter, David Katz (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), gets an assignment covering rappers Damon Dash (Capone) and Jay-Z (Robert Stapleton), during which he tries to insinuate himself into the hip-hop world. When he overhears an executive telling Damon that his career at record label Roc-A-Fella is done, David is the first to report it, which gains him notoriety and his own column at a leading hip-hop magazine. Unfortunately, he also ignites a bitter feud between Damon and Jay-Z.

Critic Reviews for Death of a Dynasty

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (8)

  • Half home movie, half product placement, and almost completely worthless.

    April 29, 2005 | Rating: 1/4
  • This narcissistic mockumentary is less a film than a full-length promotional video for Roc-a-Fella Records mogul/director Damon Dash.

    April 29, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.

    April 29, 2005 | Rating: 1/4
  • Watching Damon Dash's playful movie is like entering a room where a large, too noisy party is going on and never fully adjusting to the dark or the din.

    April 28, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Death of a Dynasty is, like the music it parodies: aggressive, over-the-top, louder than life and in your face.

    April 28, 2005 | Full Review…
  • There is a funny movie to be made from the outrageous egos and excesses of rap music. Death of a Dynasty is not that movie.
