Lil Wayne has been very vocal about his fallout with Cash Money. Now his longtime manager Cortez Bryant is speaking out in his defense.
Bryant, who remained coy when asked about the beef last month, took to Instagram on Monday night to address the ongoing feud between Birdman and Weezy.
In December, Wayne tweeted that he wants off Cash Money, and that his album Tha Carter V won’t be released because Birdman refuses to put it out.
I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain't that easy

In his open letter, Bryant saluted Wayne for his loyalty and for building the careers of Nicki Minaj and Drake. He also vowed to defend his client’s hard work.
“He 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 was optimistic about the future, and promised other Young Money artists including Lil Twist, Cory Gunz, and Shanell that they will get their shot.
“Once we unlock these chains, it’s on Young Money!” he said.
While they work on a resolution, Wayne is prepping his mixtape Sorry 4 the Wait 2. On Monday, he dropped the first single, a remix to Future’s “Sh!t,” on which he addresses his beef with Cash Money.
