The beef between Dame Dash and Jay-Z continues to escalate as the Dusko Poppington founder accused Jay-Z off illegally transferring the rights of the rapper’s Reasonable Doubt album.
The former friends have been duking it out in court over the proposed auction of a NFT (non-fungible token).
“Dash had planned to sell at a SuperFarm Foundation online auction on Jun. 23… the copyright to JAY-Z’s album Reasonable Doubt, recognized as one of the greatest recordings in history. That auction was cancelled and Dash is frantically scouting for another venue to make the sale… The sale of this irreplaceable asset must be stopped before it is too late, and Dash must be held accountable for his theft,” Jay-Z’s attorney, Alex Spiro wrote in the lawsuit after Dame sued.
