Promoters beware. Cortez Bryant, who manages Lil Wayne and co-manages Drake, has announced that a scam artist has been impersonating him to secure advance payments on phony Drake bookings.

A rep for Bryant has released a statement regarding the imposter saying, " It has come to light that an individual has been impersonating Bryant Management CEO Cortez Bryant for financial gain through false bookings of his clients, specifically the much buzzed about recording artist Drake. The imposter has created bogus twitter (such as and email accounts (such as in Bryant's name which he then utilizes to secure and pocket deposits for false bookings and club appearances."

Unfortunately, phony concert bookings are a common scam. Just last month a man was arrested for a scheme involving false bookings of Miami rapper Pitbull, allegedly making out with $500,000 for assorted real estate and booking-related dealings. Promoters, henceforth be warned, Drake is exclusively booked through International Creative Management (ICM).
