A New York federal judge subsequently blocked an attempt by Dash to auction off Jay-Z‘s ‘Reasonable Doubt’ as an NFT (non-fungible token). An official NFT from Jay-Z celebrating the album was then announced.
As The Hollywood Reporter reports, Dash has now filed a lawsuit against Jay-Z in the New York Supreme Court. The report states that the complaint accuses the rapper of wrongfully claiming streaming rights to his 1996 debut album ‘Reasonable Doubt’ for himself.
The specific complaint in the suit alleges that Jay-Z transferred streaming rights for the album from Roc-A-Fella to his own company S. Carter Enterprises LLC without correct authorisation.
Dash is now subsequently suing Jay-Z for “unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, replevin, and conversion” for a minimum of $1 million (£720,000) in damages.
The new complaints come after Jay-Z reportedly filed a lawsuit against photographer Jonathan Mannion, who shot the cover of ‘Reasonable Doubt’.
Mannion’s representative told TMZ: “We are confident that the First Amendment protects Mr. Mannion’s right to sell fine art prints of his copyrighted works, and will review the complaint and respond in due course.”
