Lil Wayne's manger Cortez Bryant sat down with the Rap Radar podcast to discuss the rift with Cash Money Records in detail and why the highly anticipated Carter V has yet to be released.

Bryant assured that the held up album is completely finished and ready for release, but due to Cash Money Records nonfulfillment of their contractual obligations to Wayne and his music, the album won’t be released until they take care of business. Birdman and his CMR label owe more than $51 million to Lil Wayne and Young Money Records, and they aren’t the only ones owed money. "Universal Records is also a victim because they fronted the money,” said Bryant.

Cortez Bryant also detailed why Lil Wayne reacted the way he did by dissing Cash Money Records via social media, and says before he could warn the lawyers about what was about to happen, TMZ was calling about the NOLA rapper's tweets.

It all makes sense now, and t’s probably the reason Weezy owes so many people as of late. He’s waiting to collect his money so he can pay the people he has agreements with, specifically with Jaz Prince, the man responsible for Drake signing with Young Money Records.

Check out the clips below, where Cortez Bryant explains Nicki Minaj as a business woman, and what really went down between her and Tyga during their beef over “Truffle Butter”, which he takes fault for.
