And for my next stunt I will execute a flawless face palm.
Dame Dash’s attorney released a statement on Tuesday (March 27) addressing the lawsuit filed by former friend / frequent collaborator Curren$y. Spitta is suing Chocolate Homer Simpson for $1.5 million (knowing damn well he ain’t got it) in damages for illegally selling his music without permission.
It’s like the universe is still tight with dude for trying to bring Pro-Keds back.
Dame and his legal squad see things a tad differently. They claim the Nola native openly promoted his ‘Muscle Car Chronicles’ album that was released on Dame’s DD172 label in February.
The IRS filed a $2,984,364 tax lien against the former Roc-A-Fella executive in 2011, soooooooooooo yeah. Good luck with that, Shante.
“My client’s initial reaction to the lawsuit was that of surprise, particularly in light of Curren$y’s numerous statements that the Muscle Car Chronicles would be released by BluRoc.
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 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.”
