In 2010, Spitta and Dash were working on an agreement to release music on Dash's label, BluRoc, according to TMZ . However, the deal was never solidified, and Curren$y signed with Warner Bros in early 2011. Allegedly Dash continued to release music of the New Orleans rhymesayer, despite Warner's exclusive rights to Curren$y's material, leading to his lawsuit claiming $1.5 million in damages for the unauthorized release. Dash has claimed Curren$y backed out of their agreement in 2010 and signed with Warner instead.
In response, Dash's attorney, Joshua E. Seidman, has issued a statement in attempt to shed light on the situation. In the statement, Seidman notes that Dash's initial reaction "was that of surprise," particularly regarding "Curren$y's numerous statements that the 'Muscle Car Chronicles' would be released by BluRoc." "Chronicles," which dropped last month, was released on Dash's BluRoc label. Seidman revealed Dame and Curren$y were in Federal Court on March 15 for "a preliminary injection seeking to enjoin [Seidman's] client from the continued distribution of the 'Muscle Car Chronicles.'" But apparently, Curren$y's application was denied by the judge, leaving "Chronicles" to remain available through retailers.
Seidman continued to say that Dash "wishes Curren$y the best in all his future career endeavors," he still "has expressed a deep concern with respect to the manner in which [Curren$y's team] have conducted themselves" and voiced concerns that Curren$y is being misled into "making unwise decisions."
It seems the waters have only gotten muddier.
