Curren$y is going after Dame Dash for $1.5 million in damages for allegedly releasing his music without his permission.
As reported by TMX, the lawsuit stems from Dame Dash releasing two Curren$y’s albums, Pilot Talk and Pilot Talk II, in 2010 based on a a deal that never came to fruition, as the New Orleans rapper signed with Warner Brothers Records as he and Dash could never come to an agreement.
Although there was no deal in place, Dash continued to release Curren$y’s music despite the new contract with Warner Bros., which gave them exclusive rights to Spitta’s music.
The suit states that Curren$y wants Dash to stop making profits off his music and is also seeking $1.5 million in damages.
Dame Dash responded to the lawsuit as he stated… he has the rights to release the albums in question, because he was given permission, and Curren$y stabbed him in the back by reneging on his agreement with Dash to instead sign with Warner Brothers.
