Curren$y Suing Dame Dash For $1.5 Million For Illegally Releasing His Music

Rapper Curren$y’s music is NOT to be trifled with — and to prove it … the MC is suing famed music producer Damon Dash, claiming he is hocking several Curren$y albums 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.

But Damon fired back at the accusations with his own response — claiming, he has the right to release the albums in question because he was given permission. What’s more — Damon says Curren$y stabbed him in the back, reneging on his agreement with Damon and signing with WB instead.

A judge has yet to rule on the case.

    It’s got to the stage now, where I’m not even surprised when someone is suing Dame. He’s not part of the “club” like Jiggaman, so everyone thinks they can do him over! If Curren$y really understood how to conduct business, he would’ve stayed with Dame and used WB for worldwide distribution. While keeping ownership of ALL his work. Instead, he’s allowed the cut throat BASTARDS at WB, to get in his mind……That never ends well!!! Major labels are useful for promo, nothing else. They don’t give a single fuck about the culture of Hip-Hop, so you know they don’t give a damn about any rapper.
