Boyband B5 had success with Bad Boy Records with two albums, however they apparently never received a dime from any of it.
Bryan Breeding went into detail on IG about the “snakes” .
“We made about 99.9% of all our income from live performances & merchandise and till this day I’ve never seen a PENNY from any of our B5 commercial albums,” he wrote. “For years! We reach out to lawyers, advisors and even TV networks for a chance to help us or tell our story and no one ever touched it with a 10 foot pole.”
He implores other artists to use his story as a cautionary tale.
“So here I AM telling my story, my truth and not from a ‘woe is me’ perspective but as an example for the next generation of young artists to WRITE and OWN your content!” he added. “READ your contracts and create new sounds for the LOVE of music, as a expression of who YOU ARE! You don’t need to compromise for the bag or the glamorized ‘Record Label Deal’ we have enough artist like that and doing a great job at it.”
The group’s lead singer Patrick Breeding revealed Disney never paid fellow group member Kelly Breeding for his contribution to High School Musical.
“Oh we’re going there today?” he commented. “In that case Disney needs to run @gowiththeflow88 his check for writing the rap on #HighSchoolMusical #GetYourHeadInTheGame. He was 14 and they stole that check from him. And that’s just the tip.”
This isn’t the first time Bad Boy's been called out. Ma$e put Diddy on blast for holding on to his publishing as well.
