Roc-A-Fella Records’ co-founder Damon Dash has sued the other co-founder Jay-Z over the streaming rights to Reasonable Doubt.
Reasonable Doubt is Jay-Z’s debut album that dropped in 1996. The latest feud follows a different lawsuit from last month, when a federal judge had halted a non-fungible token auction of Reasonable Doubt by Dash.
Roc-A-Fella had then argued that Dash had “no right to sell the copyright or any individual ownership interests in Reasonable Doubt because he did not the own the rights to Jay’s debut project.”
However, Dash had clarified that he wasn’t just trying to sell Jay’s album, but his entire stake in Roc-A-Fella. Dash claimed Jay-Z gave him an offer to buy out his 1/3 stake in the company, but it was too low.
Coming to the latest lawsuit, according to Hollywood Reporter, Dash claims that Jay-Z transferred streaming rights to Reasonable Doubt without authorization from Roc-A-Fella to S. Carter Enterprises LLC.
Dash is claiming unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, replevin and conversion. He’s seeking at least $1 million in damages.
