Although he’s remained mum about Lil Wayne’s fallout with Cash Money, the rapper’s longtime manager Cortez Bryant is finally speaking up… coming to his client’s defense.
Back in December, Weezy shocked fans when he tweeted that he wants off Cash Money, adding that the label and its co-founder Birdman are refusing to release his long awaited album, Tha Carter V.
Bryant took to Instagram on Monday night (Jan. 12) with an open letter about the inner-turmoil within the Cash Money/Young Money camps.
“[Lil Wayne] don’t deserve the shit he’s going through at this point in the game,” he wrote. “[Young Money president] @mackmaine and myself will not let this dream die WE GOT US!”
He also promised other Young Money artists — including Lil Twist, Cory Gunz, Gudda Gudda, Jae Millz and Shanell — that their patience would pay off. “Once we unlock these chains, it’s on Young Money,” he wrote.
While Young Money works out their issues with Cash Money, Weezy is preparing the release of his mixtape, entitled Sorry 4 the Wait 2.
