Cortez Bryant Talks Lil Wayne Tha Carter Album Series, New Young Money Compilation & More

I’ve just come across this interview that I must of missed a couple of months ago of GIANTlife interviewing Lil Wayne‘s best friend and manager Cortez Bryant.

During the conversation, Tez discussed the beginning of Tunechi‘s Tha Carter album series, first noticing a change with Tune‘s popularity around Tha Carter III time, touring the right way, and the Young Money: Rise Of An Empire compilation.

You can watch the Cortez interview about Weezy F Baby in the clip below!

  • Kai Balduin

    Cortez Bryant aka. “i push back Albums 504231 times”

    • Truuueeeee

      Aka had the most sold albums in a week on carter 3, great marketing manager

      • Kai Balduin

        Carter 3 most sold Album in a week , because everybody wants to hear Wayne and want that Carter III !!! Has nuthin do do with Tez in my opinion.

        • Slateer

          Carter 3 is recoed breaking…but Em did 3 mill…

          • Kai Balduin

            Carter 3 is the most sold Carter Album till now , lets see if Wayne can breake that record with C5

            • Ye’

              I think the massacre sold better first week actually

              • Anti

                yup

          • Anti

            Not in 1 week so what’s the point when they both did better than 1.5 milli the 1st week

      • fewcha

        wayne did that with his work ethic and amount of music

        did you even hear the first version of the album that leaked?

        • Kai Balduin

          True that !

      • Ye’

        What do you mean most sold?

        • Anti

          most sold in a week by wayne I’m assuming

  • Linda_weezy

    tunechi…you so kray!

  • JayHighAss

    It’s hard to choose outta C1 & C2 but C2 Is by far the best Carter album Yet

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      c3 nigga

    • beep

      Carter four, no troll

    • YoungJT1092

      You def right brotha. Carter 2 was the hardest album Wayne dropped, Hit Em Up, Mo Fire, Hustla Musik and the rest were the bomb! Really everything from C2 to 2007 were what made C3 what it was: an album full of hits right in Wayne’s prime. But to know the gangsta Wayne best, Carter 2 is that deal. To me, he seems to want to ressurect that flow for Carter 5.

      • youngtune410

        Carter 2 best lyrically but idk musically all around carter 3 takes that

        • YoungJT1092

          I agree. Lyrically and hit wise that’s what C3 was about, but if he had put songs like Scarface and I Feel Like Dying on the actual C3 album there would be no question as to who’s the best in the game. But I dont question it, I clearly know, lol

      • Qiydaar

        Your right, he does but he’s doing at a different point of view . C2 he was spitting like a goon as if he was putting in work himself and C5 he talking about it in a bosses point of view . I mean like he’s talking about killing but like calling the hit not actually pulling the trigger.

  • Giraffe

    Worst manager alive

    • Ym

      True

  • Euro

    That new young money album flopped so hard

    That’s cause ym sucks now and people only checking for Wayne, drake, Nicki and tyga

  • [Original] Gudda Gudda

    “the other people” racist much tez?

    • Hold up

      But it’s true tho. How often do you see a white person bumping tha carter or carter 2? Compare that to white people bumping c3 and c4. Lollipop alone is bumped by hella white people. They changed him in my opinion

      • Dan Parry

        I’m white an I listen to all lil wayne albums

      • David D

        why didn’t cortez say white people instead of other people lol…… thats why he sound racist

  • Rich gang

    Danny I would rather you do a feature Friday than post an interview with this frog

  • He should of been fired from his job of choosing the tracklist for Wayne’s albums a long time ago.

    I mean how do you put wowzers on IANAHB2 and keep off the song with meek mill.

    • YoungJT1092

      A question I ask everyday mane…I secretly hoped (am hoping) they could move Terrorists on to Tha Carter 5 or the Other album. Because good grief that’s possibly one of Wayne’s top ten, to just waste it would be so….

      • Skenny

        I was shocked when Terrorists dropped
        Maybe it was a leftover for CV ??

        • David D

          no lol, leftover for ianahb2

        • ryan cortes

          Guys Meeks verse on terrorists was on ace hoods starvation mixtape first, that’s why wayne doesn’t use the song anywhere

    • Qiydaar

      Do you not know that Meeks verse was a recycled verse from a ace hood song ? THATS WHY!!!!!!

      • youngtune410

        Meek put it on ace song after terrorist aint make the cut

        • David D

          exactly, why should meek waste that verse just cause wayne aint gonna put it on his album

        • ryan cortes

          That ace song came out wayyyy before that album was talked about

    • Krazy

      I highly bet Wayne is gonna name “The Other Album” I Am Not a Human Being 3.

      • TRIPPY_94

        Yea most likely he will because the IANAHB projects are just basicly a bunch of leftover songs from other albums just like Ianahb 1 was a bunch of leftovers from Tha Carter 3 and rebirth. And Ianahb2 was a bunch of leftovers from Tha Carter 4 and Devol. Ianahb3 will probably be leftovers from Tha Carter V and The Other Album probably.

        • Duh

          The first IANAHB was c4 leftover tracks he was gonna use for the album but when he got locked up he wanted somethin to hold fans over.

        • Skenny

          I like your analysis bro

      • Young Hitta

        No nigga I hope that series ended with Ianahb2, lord knows we don’t need another Ianahb album!

        • jc_love

          I dont know why ppl dont like ianahb2 curtins, gun talk,trippy kit,raf,and love me where all hard body

        • corbin wells

          first ianahb is better then C4.

          • PurpleDrank !!!

            ahahah….no

          • YoungP

            You trippin thats C4 you talkin about

      • martianonmars

        Hell yeah hell yeah fucking right Lolthat would be dope as fuck IAm Not A Human Being 3 album Tune hi already mentioned he got over 300 leftover tracks from Carter 5 Album dat needs too be broken down why not drop few more mix tapes it only make sense ya feel me

  • fewcha

    tez gets a lot of hate………. but he does deserve it

  • Truth

    Tez makes me laugh. First off my is all about drake nicki and tyga now. People like Millz gudda Cory and shanell will never see the success the others did cause nobody at my is helping them. It’s why chuckee left. Second, he says rise of an empire was to show they’re still a unit but they didn’t even record it together!! Young Money isn’t a label. It’s something that’s occasionally shouted out by drake nicki and tyga

    • fewcha

      wayne shouts it out every song too but yep u right

      • Truth

        I love Wayne and he’s going hard this year but he isn’t as relevant as he was in 08 so even him shouting it out isn’t enough

        • Tune Up

          He’s more relevant today..lmao

    • TRIPPY_94

      I miss the old days of YMCMB when they actually did record together and they were always on stage together having fun. Now it’s hard to even see them on each others albums. They need to go back to being a team again, we need a Lil Wayne, Nicki, and Drake callabo. We’ve never had that.

    • Ye’

      How much help do they need damn ?! You can’t blame the label if they had what it takes to be big they would have blown up by now

      • Truth

        We’ll look at how Wayne has been talking about euro. Kids new to YM and he had hella verses on D5 and Wayne called him a secret weapon. Gudda Millz, Corey, and Shannell have talent to make it but no one will take a chance. That’s why Millz has Potent dept., Gudda is doing LAT, and Corey is working hard with militia. They know YM ain’t doing shit for them

  • LuvCoolJ

    Dead ass i really feel like 80% of u fans are not even real fans. Y’all probably only know this”new era” Wayne. If you didn’t come up listening to Go DJ, BMJR, bring it back, or any other track off Tha Carter, ya not real Wayne fans. Most of y’all became fans after he dropped Tha Carter III, which is like the prime of his career. That’s why i don’t give a fuck about what u suck ass “fans” gotta say. I know wtf i’m talking bout.

    • YoungJT1092

      Word! What they know bout You Got Jokes, Georgia Bush, and Scarface?

      • LuvCoolJ

        They don’t hear u bro….

    • Lorenzo

      How many of hall remember the suffix

      • LuvCoolJ

        Word up i do. He dropped the prefix and the suffix

      • MDRAIJER_

        Prefix > Suffix tho

    • Duna

      Fuk dat…u aint a real fan if u dont go back to da hot boy dayz nd wayne was rippin erry track

      • LuvCoolJ

        That too…but his first two albums like 500 Degreez i’m not too familiar with.

  • Rook

    Tez needs to drive off a cliff

    • T.D.E

      Loooooool forreal doe…….

  • Chuck_Brazy

    Lil Wayne’s best songs are never on official albums lol. Mostly mixtapes and leaks 🙁

    • Skenny

      Or sometimes freestyles lol

  • LuvCoolJ

    How many niggas know the actual Blow: I Can’t Feel my Face mixtape?? shit like this i don’t think y’all know. Ya fans suspect as hell

    • Qiydaar

      The shit with dj mick boogie right?

      • LuvCoolJ
