Dame Dash’s attorney has released a statement in his client’s defense against accusations made by rapper Curren$y. The New Orleans native claims Dash is illegally selling his music without the proper authorization. TMZ recently made the news public in an article published yesterday morning (March 26).
Curren$y tried to negotiate an agreement to release music with Dash in 2010, releasing two of his albums that year. When the two couldn’t reach an agreement on how those albums would be distributed, Curren$y signed with Warner Bros. in January 2011.
Dash’s lawyer, Joshua E. Seidman released this statement:
“My client’s initial reaction to the lawsuit was that of surprise, particularly in light of Curren$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 the ‘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.”
