Dame Dash and Jay-Z’s legal tussle was heading towards a resolvable route as the two former business partners embraced settlement talks. The new development began on Wednesday (March 15) until Dash rubbished the development in less than twenty-four hours.
“…we are nowhere near a settlement,” Says Dash
Dame Dash took to Instagram on Thursday (March 17) to inform his fans of the dispute between him and Hov is far from settlement talks. Jay-Z sued Dash over an alleged NFT auction of his 1996 debut album. He argues that the Harlem-bred rapper lacks the legal right to sell it.
“Please don’t believe this hype, we are no where near a settlement.” Dash wrote while posting the screenshot of the settlement talk. “They accused me of doing something I did not do and now they have to prove it…and I can sell my share anytime I want #askthejudge.”
Calling out Jay-Z and Kareem “Biggs” Burke, he advised them to dare what he posted on Instagram as they attempt to settle the case out of court.
“#jayz and @biggsburke if you wanna settle this holla at me,” Dash added. “We used to hustle together…court is corny…let’s talk like men for the culture… I dare y’all to respond #doitfortheculture.”
In June 2021, Jay-Z filed a lawsuit against Dame Dash. Dash was accused of an attempt to auction off Reasonable Doubt as an NFT without prior permission to do so. Although, the sale never happened Dame was accused of “frantically scouting for another venue to make the sale.”
However, Dash refuted Jay-Z’s allegations. He argued he wanted to sell off his one-third stake in Roc-A-Fella Records. Not long later, he filed a lawsuit of $1 million against Hov and Roc-A-Fella accusing Jay-Z of falsely claiming ownership right of Reasonable Doubt for himself.
Jay-Z To File Another Separate Motion Against Dame Dash
On Tuesday (March 15), Alex Spiro (Roc-A-Fella atty) revealed that Dash and Jay-Z are “in the process of meeting and conferring to determine whether they can reach a settlement agreement that would resolve this case.”
Should a settlement talk prove to be futile, Spiro said Jay-Z will file another motion to ban Dash permanently from selling any part of Reasonable Double. Mind you, a judge has temporarily prohibited Dash from minting the album as NFT last year June.
Jay-Z and Dash’s relationship hasn’t completely been soiled irrespective of the issue between them. During an event last year, Hov took time out to celebrate Dash. Jay-Z said, “We was like, we gonna create our own company, you know?” he said. “That’s Hip Hop, and we created this company called Roc-A-Fella Records. Shout out to Dame [Dash]; I know we don’t see eye to eye, but I can never erase your accomplishments, and I appreciate you and thank you for that.”
