Damon Dash Files a Lawsuit Against Jay-Z for Streaming Rights to “Reasonable Doubt”

Damon Dash has launched a lawsuit against Jay-Z for the streaming rights of Reasonable Doubt. The new complaint comes after Roc-A-Fella Records filed a separate claim

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Damon Dash has launched a lawsuit against Jay-Z for the streaming rights of Reasonable Doubt. The new complaint comes after Roc-A-Fella Records filed a separate claim last month accusing Damon Dash of attempting to create and sell the copyright for Jay-Reasonable Z’s Doubt as a non-fungible token (NFT).

 

According to THR, a summons filed in New York Supreme Court on Tuesday alleges that Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, improperly transferred streaming rights to Reasonable Doubt to S. Carter Enterprises LLC. According to THR, Damon Dash is seeking at least $1 million in damages for unjust enrichment, violation of fiduciary duty, replevin, and conversion.

 

In a statement to Rolling Stone, Alex Spiro, a lawyer for Roc-A-Fella and Jay-Z, stated, “This is nothing more than a ridiculous stunt.”

 

Last month, Roc-A-Fella sued Damon Dash, accusing him of purportedly planning to sell an NFT of the Reasonable Doubt copyright at an auction, escalating legal tensions between the two cofounders. The lawsuit claimed that the sale was “improper,” and that it should be revoked.

 

Damon Dash told Rolling Stone that the complaint was full of errors, and that he was trying to sell his share in Roc-A-Fella Records rather than an NFT of Reasonable Doubt after the label allegedly wanted to buy it for a low price.

 

I don’t think the culture needs that when another black man brands another black man a thief only to make him seem bad and to devalue an asset that that other man possesses because he won’t sell it to him at a low price,” Dash said. He also referred to the allegations regarding the selling of the Reasonable Doubt NFT as “fake.”

 

A judge decided in favor of the label on June 22nd, prohibiting Dash from marketing Reasonable Doubt as a non-fiction title.

KODAK BLACK IS READY TO FILE A CHARGE AGAINST JACKBOY

Kodak Black hasn’t given up on his former signee and pal, Jackboy. The rapper announced his intention to file a lawsuit on Instagram this morning.

The “Gleerious” rapper said on Instagram, “I Still Ain’t Get My Money From This Ungrateful Lil Bitch Yet.” “And what’s even crazier, A N***a Ain’t Even TRYING 2 Make These People Send Dat, No Kinda Effort To, But If I File This Lawsuit Or Sumn, Ima B Green.”

When Kodak and Jackboy battled back and forth on social media in June, fans were taken aback. Jackboy escalated the fight by dumping over $100,000 into the ocean, alleging that he didn’t need any of the money he earned from Jackboy.

“I Was Too Busy Showin Love I Ain’t See Da Signs, When You Needed Me Pussy I Came Through Everytime, Whether You Were Right Or Wrong Fuck N***a I Was Riding…. But in the back of your mind, you were envious of me, N***a,” the rapper stated on Instagram.

The foolery has elicited no response from Jackboy. Do you believe the two can simply mend fences?

The Weeknd is ushering in a new era, With the single "Take My Breath"

Following a series of not-so-subtle hints, The Weeknd appears to be gearing up for his post-After Hours phase. In a video released yesterday, he teased over two minutes of new music, and now he’s revealed even more of it.

He also announced that the song’s title is “Take My Breath,” and that it will be released on Friday, August 6.

The song is featured in a new NBC ad for Olympic coverage in 2020, specifically some track and field events.

Although the commercial discloses the song’s name, it is a less comprehensive preview of the actual music than the previous teaser, however it does show off what appears to be the hook, which the teaser did not.

The Weeknd stated in a September interview that the album he was working on at the time was cinematic, saying, “I’m guilty of wanting to outdo my last album, but it’s never like, ‘I’ve got to do the same type of song.'” I’m so relieved that I’m not like that.

My palette is really diverse. […] I’m attempting to strike the right balance between the film and the music, and so far it’s working out beautifully. “I believe I’ve broken the code.”

Fans of Kanye West believe the rapper’s forthcoming album, Donda, will include a duet with The Weeknd.

Originally set to be released in July, Kanye West announced this week that his long-awaited new album will instead be released on August 5th.

Kanye West posted a screenshot of his phone’s call log to his Instagram account on Monday (2 August), revealing that he had made three calls with the “Blinding Lights” singer in the previous day.

One call was recorded on Sunday, and two more were recorded at 1:14 a.m. and 2:17 a.m. on Monday.

Kanye West tagged producer Mike Dean in the image, who re-posted it to his own Instagram account. He wrote, “IF I DON’T ANSWER, U SEE WHY #DONDA.”

In the comments section of the original post, fans speculated that a possible collaboration with The Weeknd, real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, was on the way, with one fan commenting, “YO PLZ COLLAB WITH THE WEEKND.”

“The Weekend and Kanye???? “OH MY GOD WE GETTING THE WEEKEND ON THIS TOO,” one commenter wondered, while another added, “OH MY GOD WE GETTING THE WEEKEND ON THIS TOO.”

“NEED THAT WEEKEND COLLAB,” said another commenter.

Kanye West is now staying in a suite inside Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium while working on the record, which is dedicated after his mother Donda West, who died in 2007 at the age of 58.

Donda will be the subject of a second hearing session on Thursday.
