Damon Dash Responds To Currensy’s Lawsuit

XXL reports the following:

It was only a matter of time before outspoken music business man Damon Dash responded to a lawsuit brought by former friend Curren$y.

Dash’s legal team released a statement today (Marcy 27) in response to the lawsuit; the suit finds Curren$y suing Jay-Z’s former Roc-A-Fella partner for $1.5 million in damages for releasing C’s music without permission.

The statement reads:

“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.”

It was originally believed the suit had to do with the release of Curren$y’s albums, Pilot Talk I and II, but it appears the bad blood is related to the unexpected release of Spitta’s long-delayed Muscle Car Chronicles, which dropped earlier this year.

Dash credited the Nola rapper with getting him back into music when the two linked up back in 2010 but this recent news shows the partnership wasn’t all what it seemed. Curren$y took his Jets International Imprint to Warner Bros. in 2011 after him and Dash went separate ways.

Currensy Sues Dame Dash!

TMZ reports claim New Orleans, Louisiana rapper Currensy is currently suing former Roc-A-Fella Records executive and Jay-Z colleague, Damon Dash for distributing his music without permission.

Curren$y filed the lawsuit against Jay-Z‘s old biz partner and former co-owner of Roc-A-Fella Records — claiming he and Dash 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.

But according to the lawsuit, Damon was unmoved — and CONTINUED to release Curren$y’s music despite the new WB contract, which gave WB exclusive rights to Curren$y’s jams.

Now, Curren$y is demanding the producer quit profiting off him in any way. Curren$y also wants $1.5 million in damages.
