For those who were hoping for a revitalization of Roc-A-Fella, or at least Damon Dash’s prominence to his former level of
relevance stardom, take a seat.
According to TMZ, Curren$y is suing Dame for $1.5 million dollars in damages for selling his some of his albums unauthorized. Rewind to 2010, Curren$y was working out of Dash’s studio/collective, DD172. There were stirrings that Dame would be getting back on his feet with Spitta being the premier artist on his BluRoc label, perhaps snatching renewed success out of the jaws of defeat. Pilot Talk & Pilot Talk II were even released under the DD172 imprint that year.
After an agreement wasn’t reached between the two parties, Curren$y, born Shante Franklin, signed to Warner Brothers in 2011. Though his contract gave WB exclusive rights to his music, Dame continued to collect residuals from the Pilot Talk series. Spitta wants that to stop immediately.
As far as he’s concerned, Dame claims that Curren$y gave him permission to release the albums. He goes on to say that Curren$y stabbed him in the back. Although a judge has yet to decide upon the situation, the court of public opinion is always open for an opinion.
