Damon Dash Sued for Selling Alcohol Without a License

BAUER-GRIFFIN

Even though hip-hop mogul Damon Dash hasn’t used his multipurpose creative space DD172 in Manhattan’s upscale Tribeca neighborhood for awhile, the property has been served a summons for its tenants being a “public nuisance.”

Dash and his associates are being accused of six counts of storing and selling alcoholic beverages without a license, The Village Voice reports.

According to legal papers, it was less of an art gallery and recording studio and more of a front for an unlicensed club, where unlawful festivities “were conducted in an open and notorious manner and the operators of this establishment appear to have evinced a ‘business as usual’ attitude in the subject premises.”

According to the fussy neighbors, the conflict goes a bit deeper than laws and rules. “This isn’t a club neighborhood,” they told the Village Voice. They weren’t fond of the “18-year-old kids smoking and drinking” either, calling them “real thugs.”

Regardless, the space hasn’t even been operating since June.
