If no one else has his back … Lil Wayne can also always count on his manager/longtime friend Cortez Bryant to have it.

As most Tunechi fans should know by now, Weezy and his label Cash Money Records have been at odds over the release of ‘Tha Carter V.’

Last month, Wayne tweeted that he wants “off this label and nothing to do with these people” because Birdman refuses to release his new album.

Birdman has reportedly vowed to take matters to court if needed due to Wayne currently being under contract.

Cortez Bryant — who has been working with Wayne since they were school classmates — took to Instagram earlier this week to defend Wayne and his loyalty to Cash Money over the past 10 years, while also giving him props for building Drake and Nicki Minaj’s respective careers.

Cortez also assured that rest of the Young Money artists we never get a chance to hear from — J Millz, Gudda Gudda, Cory Gunz, Lil Twist, and Shanell — will soon be getting their chance to shine as well.

“Once we unlock these chains, it’s on Young Money!” Bryant wrote.

@LilTunechi built Young Money from his dreams to reality. 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! 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
