CCS Music Said Marketing Company Broke Deal By Not Investing In Mario’s Unreleased “Never 2 Late”
Singer Mario is at the center of a nasty legal battle over his upcoming comeback album.
A music production company is suing over $400,000 it invested in the unreleased music – demanding another company pay up ASAP because the other company’s shenanigans mean the album is still under wraps.
A company named CCS Music Group filed a federal lawsuit against H Brand LLC and a music executive named Derek Jackson, accusing H Brand of fraud and demanding damages for the losses they incurred due to the misrepresentations by the company.
Brad and Seth Cohen formed the music company last year – with music producer Scott Storch – to record and produce music.
Around February 2015, the company began producing songs for the singer Mario with Storch. They didn’t originally plan to record an entire album but they kept working on more songs over time.
The company reached out to H Brand and Derek Jackson saying they were concerned about the amount of money it would take to record, market and distribute a full album by Mario.
They explained that Jackson informed them he had half a million dollars to sink into the project. He also claimed he had numerous industry connections and would be able to promote and distribute the album.
