Damon Dash’s response to Curren$y’s legal claims comes from the desk of his attorney:
My client’s initial reaction to the lawsuit was that of surprise, particularly in light of Curren$y’s numerous statements that the Muscle Car Chronicles would be released by BluRoc.
On March 15, 2012, the plaintiffs appeared in Federal Court to argue for a preliminary injunction seeking to enjoin my client from the continued distribution of Muscle Car Chronicles.
The plaintiffs’ application was denied in open Court by Federal Judge Andrew Carter and the album was permitted to remain available through iTunes and other retailers. While the situation remains ongoing, we are hopeful that an amicable resolution can be reached.
My client wishes Curren$y the best in all of his future career endeavors. However, he has expressed a deep concern with respect to the manner in which the artist’s attorney and manager have conducted themselves. He sincerely hopes that Curren$y is not being misled or pressured into making unwise decisions, such as the filing of what appears to be a potentially frivolous litigation.
The doctor has a new partnership with the auto-mobile company Chrysler. Beats by Dre’s will now be included in the 2012 300 Sedan. Dre will be responsible for the sound system in the new car.
CEO of Interscope Jimmy Iovine will also be involved with Dre on the project.
“Our partnership with the Chrysler Group will set the bar for the way music should be heard in cars,” said Iovine. “Beats By Dr. Dre has always been about restoring the emotional music connection between an artist and the listener, and Chrysler vehicles beginning with the Chrysler 300S will let drivers hear music the way the artists intended, replicating the feel and the sound that artists and producers work so hard to achieve.”
It has also been announced that Dre will be in commercials for the vehicle just as Eminem was.
After Getting Pimp Slap All These Years Dr. Dre Finally Triumphant!
Dr Dre just won a huge lawsuit against the current owners of Death Row Records, WIDEawake Entertainment.
Yesterday (April 19), U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder ruled that Death Row doesn’t have the rights to sell the classic album ‘The Chronic‘ online.
Dr Dre will now receive 100% of all online sales, while Death Row can only sell the album in CD, cassette, 8-track and vinyl formats as stipulated by Dre’s original contract with Suge Knight and the old Death Row.
“For years, Death Row Records forgot about Dre when they continued to distribute his music digitally and combined his hits with weaker Death Row tracks in an attempt to elevate the stature of their other artists,” Dre’s attorney Howard King told the Associated Press. “We are gratified that the federal court has unambiguously declared that Death Row has no right to engage in such tactics, and must hold all proceeds from these illicit distributions in trust for our client.”
