Damon Dash is suing the lawyer he holds responsible for mishandling his contract with Curren$y for $5 million.
Damon Dash and Curren$y had agreed in principles to a deal that would have Spitta dropping three albums for Dash.Â Eventually, the relationship disintegrated, and Curren$y took his talents elsewhere, and Dame still released some of his records.Â This resulted in Curren$y suing him for $1.5 million, but then later rescinded the lawsuit.Â
Now Damon Dash is suing the lawyer he blames for mishandling Curren$yâ€™s contract, which ultimately led to losing the artist altogether.Â The lawsuit is being filed by Damon Dashâ€™s company DD172 and BluRoc Records, Â against Dashâ€™s former attorney, Janis Shen.Â Â
The suit claims, via AHH, Shen failed to complete the necessary paperwork to finalize an oral agreement between Dash and Curren$y which resulted in the rapper taking his albums over to Warner Music Group.Â Â This not only effected his relationship with the Stoned Immaculate rapper but cost Dash a distribution deal with Island/Def Jam, and as a result he lost out on having MMGâ€™s Stalley.Â
Janis Shen is being sued by Dash and his company for $5 million in damages as well as lawyer and court fees.
