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.

@LilTunechi built Young Money from his dreams to reality. Launched the careers of @Drake @NICKIMINAJ @Tyga not from their talent but from the belief in what he saw that they saw in themselves and put everything in making sure they fulfill their dreams! That's what Young Money is about That's the DNA of the real Lil Wayne Sacrifice himself to want his artist to be better! Wayne carried Cash Money on his back for over 10 years when he could have left and did this on his own The most loyal person I know on earth! He don't deserve the shit he's going through at this point in the game. One thing for sure Two things for certain @mackmaine and myself will not let this dream die WE GOT US! #YOUNG MONEY #sorry4forthewait #freeCV
