Earlier in the week, Def Sounds reported that Curren$y filed a lawsuit against Dame Dash for allegedly releasing his music without permission. Now, the fomer Roc-A-Fella records honcho issued a statement addressing the suit from Curren$y.
Through his lawyer, Joshua E. Seidman, about the lawsuit filed by Curren$y over the unauthorized release of two albums, Pilot Talk and Pilot Talk 2, Dame Dash releases a statement.
Read the statement below:
“My client’s initial reaction to the lawsuit was that of surprise, particularly in light of Curren$y’s numerous statements that the ‘Muscle Car Chronicles’ would be released by BluRoc,” states Damon Dash’s attorney, Joshua E. Seidman.
“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.”
Def Sounds will keep you updated as the case continues to unfold.
