If anyone might have some insight into Solange Knowles's May 5 attack on Jay Z in that New York City elevator — following fashion designer Rachel Roy's rumored flirtation with Jay — it's Dame Dash, who's both Jay's former business partner and Rachel's ex-husband.

But the 43-year-old businessman thought the scuffle was a hoot. "I was laughing!" he say's in a new YouTube video. "I don't think he should mad about it. I think he should be laughing. That s—t was funny. Everybody fights. … We've all been through that with our girl, where she is smacking you around or she spits on you… Like, I've gone through all of that. But I know I'm like, 'You better chill out!'"

But Dame would probably find it less hilarious if Jay was showing Rachel any untoward affection. "If he was trying to holla at my wife, though, that's kinda f—ked up. [Laughs] But I don't think he was doing that. That would be bad. That would be dark. That means he really has some resentment, but I would hope that that wouldn't be the case."

Do you think the elevator showdown was a riot? Or do you think it's no laughing matter? Give us your take below.
