Rap mogul Damon Dash has filed a $5 million (£3.1 million) lawsuit against his former attorney.

Bosses at Dash's firm Dd172 and BluRoc Records have launched a legal battle against Janis Shen over claims she botched a business deal with rapper Curren$y, who was supposed to record three albums with the label, but took his work to chiefs at Warner Music Group when his contract was never secured.

The 41 year old filed documents at New York's Manhattan Federal Court last week (begs17Sep12) and is seeking $5 million (£3.1 million) in damages and the cost of his legal fees, according to XXLMag.com.
