Damon Dash is firing back at a lawsuit alleging that he is trying to auction off JAY-Z’s debut album ‘Reasonable Doubt’ as an NFT.
Dash is pretty upset after Jay Z sued him in New York’s Southern District Court claiming he was trying to steal the album via digital marketplace SuperFarm as an NFT (a non-fungible digital token) without his permission. “He lying. That’s a whole lie…” Dash told PageSix. “Jay owns one-third of ‘Reasonable Doubt.’ They just said that I tried to sell an NFT of ‘Reasonable Doubt’ and … it’s not true. I’m not running around to different places trying to auction off ‘Reasonable Doubt.’ I’ve been working with one platform and that’s SuperFarm”. Dash says he is not trying to sell ‘Reasonable Doubt’, he is trying to sell his share of the company(Roc-A-Fella Records) and added that the lawsuit is full of inaccuracies.
Dash is also claiming that Jay Z filed his legal action on Friday after offering to buy him out of his share of Roc-A-Fella for $1.5 million, which he declined and now he is trying to find a new buyer.
Dash co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay and Kareem Burke in 1995.
