The legal battle between Dame Dash and Jay-Z isn’t over.
In the latest report, Dame is accusing Hov of taking his streaming rights for Reasonable Doubt.
The dispute has been going on for the last few weeks. The issue is over a proposed NFT of the classic 1996 album. In Dame’s new claims, he said Jay-Z allegedly transferred the streaming rights to Reasonable Doubt from Roc-A-Fella to S. Carter Enterprises LLC without any prior authorization. Since S. Carter Enterprises LLC is owned entirely by Jay Z, Dame believes Jay-Z simply transferred the streaming rights to himself.
As reported on Hollywood Reporter, “Dame is claiming unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, replevin, and conversion. He’s currently seeking at least $1 million in damages.”
Initially, Dame wanted to sell the copyright for Jay’s debut album. However, the judge shot that down. As a result, Dame cannot sell Reasonable Doubt as an NFT due to the judge blocking the request. Dame says he planned to sell his one-third share in Roc-A-Fella Records. The article also points out, “Dame is also upset with other dealings he’s had with Roc-A-Fella and wants to disqualify its lawyers at Quinn Emanuel from representation and bring the suit against him.”
The case is still pending…we’ll keep you updated.
