According to the lawsuit filed on June 18th, “Dash had planned to sell at…online auction on June 23, 2021, the copyright to Jay-Z’s debut album Reasonable Doubt.” Eventually, “Dash saw an opportunity in emerging NFT market.” Dash has planned to use Superfarm- “an online platform that mints and sells NFTs to the public.” Damon allegedly also has tried marketing the album “through another auction or some other means as soon as possible.”

Jay-Z’s debut ‘Reasonable Doubt’ was released in 1996. Recorded by Roc-A-Fella music label, they supposedly still hold all the rights for the disk. According to TMZ, court representatives had a similar opinion. “A source close to the case” informed the magazine that “the court ruled in favor of Roc-A-Fella Tuesday by ruling Damon’s prohibited from selling the NFT of Jay’s debut studio album.” However, “the ruling is only temporary.” Lots of things can still change, and more evidence is to come.
