Damon Dash just lost round one in his battle with Jay-Z over the Roc-A-Fella Records catalog. At issue right now is Jay-Z’s classic debut album, Reasonable Doubt.
Dash, a co-founder of Roc-A-Fella, was all set to auction off Jay-Z’s prized possession as an NFT. Apparently he wanted to catch the NFT wave while it was hot.
TMZ reports a federal judge has granted Jay-Z and lawyers from Roc-A-Fella a temporary injunction – the operative word here being “temporary”.
That’s right, it’s far from over. They’re saying Dash is already gearing up for round two. He’s sure the courts can’t stop him from selling what’s his, even though he only holds a one-third ownership stake in the company.
Dash wanted to sell out his ownership share to Jay-Z, but he claims The Black Album author made him a lowball offer. The circumstance between the two former friends is growing more acrimonious by the day.
The business mogul, known for bragging, has reportedly been in a financial lurch for almost a decade now. For all intents and purposes, Dam Dash needs that money.
We’ll see how this all shakes out, but for now, Jay-Z 1, Dam Dash 0. Until the next time it drips….
