According to theJasmineBrand.com, documents filed in the case on Friday (Oct. 2) revealed the judge had been notified that Curren$y and Dash finally settled their years long legal war agreed to dismiss the nearly $3 million dollar case. Although the terms of the agreement remain confidential, the case was closed the same day.
The settlement puts a cap on the case, which stemmed from a lawsuit Curren$y filed against Dash under claims the music mogul was selling his music without the right. According to Curren$y, a deal to release music together in 2010 was almost worked out between him and Dash, but it fell through. Prior to the unsuccessful deal, Curren$y and Dash released two albums.
Curren$y goes on to mention that while he eventually signed with Warner Bros. in 2011, Dash continued to release his music without permission. As a result, the rapper stated that Dash was screwing up his deal with Warner Bros. Curren$y ultimately filed and suit against Dash, demanding an injunction against him for releasing his songs as well as $1.5 million in damages.
In response, Dash countered with claims that he had every right to release Curren$y’s albums because he was given permission. From that, he accused the entertainer of stabbing him in the back by going with Warner Bros. instead of signing the deal.
As his legal battle with Curren$y continued, Dash blew the situation off for several months. The move ended up costing Dash his lawyer, who dropped him as a client.
Curren$y went on to file court documents demanding a default , which was granted by the court.
The rapper made a return to court on Nov. 21, 2014 with a demand that he be granted a default judgment of $2.9 million in damages plus $95,000 in attorney fees.
In Curren$y’s eyes, Dash caused him to lose money from his music by releasing it on his own. Dash’s blowing off the legal battle was slammed by the rhymesayer, who said Dash violated the court order by refusing to hire new lawyers to represent him. The move, according to Curren$y, caused their legal battle to drag out longer than it already had.
