Curren$y suing Damon Dash

Rapper Curren$y is suing music producer Damon Dash, claiming he is hocking several Curren$y albums without permission, according to TMZ.com.

Curren$y filed the lawsuit against Jay-Z‘s old business partner and former co-owner of Roc-A-Fella Records, claiming Dash and he tried to negotiate an agreement to release music together in 2010, but the deal never materialized.

Curren$y claims Dash released two of his albums in 2010, but the two still couldn’t reach an agreement, so Curren$y signed with Warner Bros. in January 2011.

According to the lawsuit, Dash was unmoved and continued to release Curren$y’s music despite the new WB contract, which gave WB exclusive rights to Curren$y’s music. Curren$y now is demanding that Dash quit profiting off him in any way. Curren$y also wants $1.5 million in damages.

Dash fired fired back at the accusations claiming, he has the right to release the albums in question because he was given permission. He also claim Curren$y reneged on his agreement with Damon and signing with WB instead.

A judge has yet to rule on the case.
