Curren$y sues Damon Dash for Releasing Unauthorized Music

In 2010, it appeared as if Damon Dash had gotten everything back together. Six years prior, the Roc-A-Fella dynasty had completely fallen apart. Throughout 2009, Damon Dash was rumored to be on the cusp of signing Curren$y. Earlier in his career, Curren$y was signed to Young Money before the addition of Drake and Nicki Minaj.

Curren$y made a name for himself on the mixtape scene and Damon Dash soon showed an interest in signing him. In 2010, there were rumors of Dash adding Curren$y to his label and reuniting with Jay-Z to relaunch Roc-A-Fella Records. From the way things sounded, Dash ended up signing Curren$y, but this was revealed to not have happened either.

Damon Dash released two Curren$y albums in 2010. The two albums were Pilot Talk and the sequel. Curren$y did not sign with Damon Dash’s DD172, but he did end up signing with the hip hop-inspired Warner Bros. Records. Apparently, Dash continued to sell Curren$y’s music without his permission and Curren$y is now suing his former partner in damages and demands he stops profiting from him.
