Weeks after Cortez Bryant, manager to rapper Lil Wayne, stated that things are “good” at Cash Money Records during an interview with TMZ, he has gone on to issue an in-depth response to the recent shakeup at Cash Money.
Bryant took to Instagram to offer his thoughts on Lil Wayne and the other artists signed to Cash Money. He gave credit to Weezy for turning his dream for Young Money into a reality and also credited the rapper for launching the careers of Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga.
For those hoping for a specific update on Lil Wayne’s standing at Cash Money, Bryant did not offer an update on Wayne’s label situation, but did state that he and Young Money are waiting to “unlock these chains.”
“@LilTunechi built Young Money from his dreams to reality,” Cortez Bryant said in a post uploaded to Instagram, according to HotNewHipHop.com. “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! And for all our other artists that’s been loyal from the beginning and patiently waiting for their number to be called! That’s coming too! The world also will see what Wayne saw in them that’s Jae Millz Gudda Cory Gunz Lil Twist Shanell ! Once we unlock these chains It’s on Young Money.”

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

Late last year, Lil Wayne expressed his indifference with Cash Money in a series of tweets.
“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. This is not my fault,” Lil Wayne said in a series of tweets sent in early December. “I am truly and deeply sorry to all my fans but most of all to myself and my family for putting us in this situation. 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.”
