Jay-Z’s Former Manager Dame Dash Sued By Roc-A-Fella

Dame Dash, Jay-Z’s former manager, is being sued by the Roc-A-Fella record label as they have caught on to his NFT auction of the classic “Reasonable Doubt”.

According to TMZ, the label co-founded by Dame Dash in 1995, is suing him because he is trying to sell the 1996 hit album “Reasonable Doubt” as an NFT (Non-fungible token). Allegedly Dash has been trying to auction off the NFT and according to Roc-A-Fella records he has no right in doing so.

The 1996 classic dropped 25 years ago and features Mary J. Blige, Biggie Smalls, and Foxy Brown. The album would peak at number twenty-three on the Billboard 200 and number three on the U.S. Top R&B/Hip Hop Billboard charts.

In the suit filed by attorney Alez Spiro, Roc-A-Fella records claims Jay-Z’s former manager is “frantically scouting for another venue to make the sale”. Dash has never been shy about his feelings towards Jay-Z. In an interview back in 2019 with Big Boy, Dash explained how him and Hov had fundamental differences.

“I’m about making other people famous and rich and equal, that’s what I wanted with Roc-A-Fella,” Dash said at the 22:40 mark. “And he wanted to be the boss and have people work for him for 25 years straight, which is what happened. I actually feel sorry for my fallen angels, because I’ve taught people to share. I make kings, I don’t make slaves.”
