Jay Z and Damon Dash founded Roc-A-Fella Records together, back in 1995. The two haven’t had the same relationship over the last few decades and now, things aren’t much better.
According to TMZ, Roc-A-Fella is now suing Damon Dash. This is after he recently attempted to auction off Jay Z’s 1996 debut studio album, “Reasonable Doubt,” as an NFT. Court documents were filed by Attorney, Alex Spiro. Spiro says that Dash tried to sell the NFT at a canceled auction. There is now concern that Dash will try to do this elsewhere.
The record label added that Dash is “frantically scouting for another venue to make the sale.” They are looking for a judge to legally order Dash from stopping these attempts once and for all. This would also force Dash to cough up any other Reasonable Doubt NFTs he may have.
Earlier this week, Jay also sued Jonathon Mannion, who shot the cover for Reasonable Doubt in 1996. This is due to him recently using Jay’s name and image without his consent, in regards to selling photos of him on a website for thousands of dollars. A rep for Mannion ended up telling TMZ that the First Amendment gives him the right to sell fine art prints of his copyrighted works,
