Damon Dash’s Disputed Roc-A-Fella NFT Auction Is Live

Released in 1996, Reasonable Doubt was Jay-Z’s debut album, opening and peaking at No. 23 on the Billboard 200 chart.Dash has accused Carter of wrongfully taking streaming rights on Reasonable Doubt for himself, and, over recent weeks, the pair have been engaged in a legal battle over a proposed auction of an NFT (non-fungible token).Neither side is telling precisely the same tale. Carter’s people claim Dash wanted to sell off the copyright to the album, which a judge blocked, though Dash’s reps have said the plan is simply to sell his one-third share in Roc-A-Fella Inc.It would seem Dash is cashing in his chips, as he said he would.The highest bidder will receive a commemorative NFT, titled “It’s the Roc,” which is said to represent “certificate of ownership” of Dash’s one-third share.“Own a moment in time when ‘Reasonable Doubt’ changed hip-hop culture. The album that influenced and touched so many lives,” reads the blurb.The auction closes Monday on July 26, with a minimum bid of $10 million in one of four currencies. At the time of writing, the target hadn’t been met.Earlier, Roc-A-Fella Records sued Dash over the auction, which had initially been set for June 23-25. A New York federal judge sided with the suit, and the auction was temporary halted.Dash announced the NFT auction would go ahead by way of post Tuesday (Juy 20) on his social media accounts. It remains to be seen what Jay-Z and his legal reps will do next.

Ticketing Platform Dice Secures $122M in New Funding Round

The music discovery and events app works with over 3,600 venues, festivals and promoters globally and has sold tickets to fans in nearly 180 countries. Founded in 2014, its mission is to remedy the opaque world of ticketing with its transparent, fan-first model. The technology includes upfront pricing and features such as refunds on sold-out shows and a “waitlist” that helps fans get into in-demand shows and ensures venues are at capacity to increase revenue. Dice also combats for-profit resellers by preventing secondary resale of tickets.  Dice’s business model also includes a livestreaming service that offers artists, venues and promoters support with logistics, marketing, production, distribution, merch and more.With the additional funding, Dice plans to significantly grow the company by expanding its reach to artists, fans and venues, while hiring new team members, adding to its livestream offering and launching an ambitious artist development program that will see the platform work directly with even more artists on their live strategy. “Dice is rewiring the live experiences industry. We have proven that if you treat fans well, they go out more,” said Dice founder and CEO Phil Hutcheon in a release. “We’re overhauling an unfair, inefficient system by pioneering a transparent, data-led, fan-first approach – building a scalable ecosystem that helps artists, promoters and venues thrive. To have SoftBank as a partner enables us to expand into every market.” “The concert business is a tangled mess of archaic tools and taxing ‘industry standards’ where artists are paid last. Venues shell out for marketing and are beholden to ticket conglomerates. Fans have to hunt for shows and regularly buy overpriced tickets from secondary markets or scalpers. This doesn’t make sense!” said Fadell in a release. “Dice re-engineers the entire live industry, not just a part of it: Venues are connected to fans and artists. Artists get transparency, access and control. Fans easily discover local shows and global live streams, and buy scalper-safe tickets with a single click. I’m ecstatic to be joining the Dice board and to be part of another entertainment revolution.”

Camila Cabello Opens Latin Billboard Music Awards, Calls For End To Tyranny In Cuba

Even more vital, though, was that Cabello (who is managed by Roger Gold and signed to Epic Records) used the opportunity to deliver a message. After calling for an end to tyranny in Cuba, the artist punched one fist in the air as she shouted “patria y vida.” The phrase translates to “country and life,” a new take on Cuba’s official slogan of “country or death.”The phrase was popularized by singers Yotuel, Gente de Zona, Descemer Bueno and Maykel Osorbo this February when the artists released “Patria y Vida,” a single that was met with harsh criticism from Cuba’s Communist Party. It now has over eight million YouTube views — and after such a high-profile shoutout from an artist like Cabello, that number is likely to soar.
