Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, stopped by the Rap Radar podcast and spoke at length about the issues with Cash Money Records for the first time, revealing that Tha Carter V was actually supposed to drop on Google for free, but the deal was killed by label founder’s Birdman and Slim.

“We were ready to put our Carter V. We put out ‘Believe Me’ as a single before we put out the record… it’s never been a situation [with Cash Money] where I would have to worry about anything financial. They were great with the checks because we’d come with a plan, I’d lay it out to them, they cut the check…This time, once we put it out, the check didn’t come.”
