Damon Dash - Dash Sued By Rapper Curren$y

Rapper Curren$Y is taking fallen hip-hop mogul Damon Dash to court over allegations he's selling the star's music without permission.
Jay Z's former business partner tried to sign Curren$y to his Dd172 label in 2010 and went on to release two of the MC's projects as they tried to work out a deal.
But negotiations fell apart and Curren$y went on to ink a contract with Warner Bros. Records executives in 2011, giving them exclusive rights over his tracks.
However, Dash has reportedly continued to sell the albums and now Curren$y is suing for $1.5 million (£937,500) in damages in a bid to stop him from profiting off the star's music.
Dash, who co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records with the 99 Problems icon, is fighting the lawsuit and claims he was given permission to release the songs in question.
He's also accused Curren$y of reneging on their agreement and instead signing with Warner Bros., according to Tmz.com.
Dash has been struggling financially for some time - his money woes first hit the headlines in 2009, when two of his New York properties went into foreclosure and he was accused of owing $2 million (£1.25 million) in state taxes.
