Curren$y is suing Damon Dash for $1.5 million claiming he released his music without permission.
Curren$y claims Dash released two of his albums in 2010 — but the two still couldn’t reach an agreement … so Curren$y signed with Warner Bros. in January 2011.
But according to the lawsuit, Damon was unmoved — and CONTINUED to release Curren$y’s music despite the new WB contract, which gave WB exclusive rights to Curren$y’s jams.
Now, Curren$y is demanding the producer quit profiting off him in any way. Curren$y also wants $1.5 million in damages.
But Damon fired back at the accusations with his own response — claiming, he has the right to release the albums in question because he was given permission. What’s more — Damon says Curren$y stabbed him in the back, reneging on his agreement with Damon and signing with WB instead.

Welcome the new signing to Curren$y’s Jet Life Recordings, Harlem rapper Smoke DZA.
Announced through Twitter early Wednesday (October 26), Curren$y (@Currensy_Spitta) wrote: “Well its late, but not to late to pop a bottle for @smokedza joining the set… J.L.R… Now to turn this bus into a celebration station.”
Curren$y and Smoke DZA have worked (and, no doubt, smoked) together numerous times, most recently on “Personal Party” from DZA’s Rolling Stoned project, which was released this summer. The pair also shared the stage during this year’s Smokers Club Tour.
Now, they will work together regularly as labelmates.
Curren$y, who was signed to Master P’s No Limit Records and Lil Wayne’s Cash Money label early on in his career, has seen a resurgence in popularity in the last few years, and looks to capitalize through his own Jet Life Recordings imprint.
Curren$y is gearing up to release a Jet Life compilation called Jet World Order featuring Jet members Young Roddy and Trademark Da Skydiver.
Jet World Order is due out on November 29th.
