Curren$y Sues Damon Dash Over Music

Curren$y is taking his one-time friend, Damon Dash, to court.

The rapper filed a lawsuit against Dame for $1.5 million in damages for releasing Curren$y music he had no right to drop, reports TMZ.

In the lawsuit, Curren$y claims he and Jay-Z’s former business partner tried to come to an agreement to release music together in 2010 —the same year Dash released two of Curren$y’s albums —but the deal never materialized. So, Curren$y went off and signed a deal with Warner Bros. in January 2011. Apparently, Dash continued to released the rhymeslinger’s music despite him being signed to WB, which gave Warner exclusive rights to Curren$y’s records.

Dame has since responded to the accusations, alleging he has the right to release the albums because he was given permission to do so. Damon went on to say Curren$y back-stabbed him for backing out of their agreement and signing to Warner instead.
