Damon Dash responds to Curren$y’s lawsuit | Music News

Following reports that Curren$y was filing a $1.5 million lawsuit against his former BluRoc boss Damon Dash for unlawful distribution of his music, Dash responded to the matter, claiming he had the right to release the albums in question and is surprised by the rapper’s motions.

According to the original TMZ report, the dispute emerged after Dame Dash released Curren$y’s Pilot Talk and Pilot Talk II albums in 2010, despite after the Jet Life rapper leaving BluRoc to sign with Warner Bros., who then held exclusive rights to his music.

Dash’s attorney released the following statement, that appears to tie Spitta’s Muscle Car Chronicles record to the dispute, as well:

My client’s initial reaction to the lawsuit was that of surprise, particularly in light of Curren$y’s numerous statements that the Muscle Car Chronicles would be released by BluRoc.

On March 15, 2012, the plaintiffs appeared in Federal Court to argue for a preliminary injunction seeking to enjoin my client from the continued distribution of Muscle Car Chronicles.

The plaintiffs’ application was denied in open Court by Federal Judge Andrew Carter and the album was permitted to remain available through iTunes and other retailers. While the situation remains ongoing, we are hopeful that an amicable resolution can be reached.

My client wishes Curren$y the best in all of his future career endeavors. However, he has expressed a deep concern with respect to the manner in which the artist’s attorney and manager have conducted themselves. He sincerely hopes that Curren$y is not being misled or pressured into making unwise decisions, such as the filing of what appears to be a potentially frivolous litigation.
