Dame Dash Responds to Reports That He and Jay-Z are Settling ‘Reasonable Doubt’ NFT Lawsuit
The legal battle between Jay-Z and Damon Dash over Reasonable Doubt appeared to reach a breakthrough on Wednesday (March 15), when it was reported that the former business partners were in settlement talks. Dash, however, has rejected this claim less than 24 hours later.
The Harlem-bred mogul took to Instagram Thursday morning (March 17) to clarify his dispute with Hov over an alleged NFT auction of his 1996 debut album, which Hov argues Dame has no legal right to sell.
“Please don’t believe this hype we are no where near a settlement,” Dash declared while sharing a screenshot of an article on the so-called settlement talks. “They accused me of doing something i did not do and now they have to prove it…and i can sell my share anytime I want #askthejudge.”
The rapper then urged JAY-Z and their fellow Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Kareem "Biggs" Burke to resolve the matter out of court while daring them to respond to his Instagram post.
“#jayz and @biggsburke if you wanna settle this holla at me,” he added. “we use to hustle together…court is corny…let’s talk like men for the culture… I dare y’all to respond #doitfortheculture.”
