Lil Wayne’s Manager Confirms Rapper Isn’t Leaving Cash Money Records
Lil Wayne blasted Cash Money Records and his boss Birdman yesterday for failing to release his new album, 'Tha Carter V' album, but the fallout doesn't mean that everything is falling apart in the YMCMB empire.
According to Wayne's manager, Cortez Bryant, everything is cool between Cash Money and Weezy, despite what was tweeted yesterday.
A TMZ reporter caught up with Bryant outside of the Penthouse club in Hollywood last night. After asking if it was the end of an era for YMCMB, Bryant downplayed the drama and made it seem like everything is peachy-keen.
"We good. I'm smiling. What you talking about? I wouldn't be out in the club right now," he said while walking to his car. "Tyga's good, too. That's my brother."
Looks like the 'Believe Me' rapper isn't going anywhere either. "We stayin' where we at. We good," Bryant confirmed.
But something smells fishy here. For one, it's unlikely that Bryant would add fuel to an already growing fire and reveal details about the drama brewing within Cash Money. Plus, any good manager will keep their artist's business matters private. It's safe to assume Wayne wouldn't be too happy if Bryant started giving information to the press without his consent.
Weezy shared his negative feelings towards the label and Birdman, the man that has played a father-figure role in his life, on Twitter Thursday (Dec. 4). "To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won't and hasn't been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it," he wrote. "I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain't that easy. I am a prisoner and so is my creativity Again,I am truly sorry and I don't blame ya if ya fed up with waiting 4 me & this album. But thk u."
While Bryant says everything is good, the MC's words reveal otherwise.
