Cortez Bryant Confirms Lil Wayne Is Doing Good & Says Wayne Wont Rest As He Is A Workaholic

Cortez Bryant was stopped by TMZ at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) yesterday and was asked about Lil Wayne‘s recent seizures to which he confirmed that Wayne is indeed doing “good“.

The manager and best friend of Tunechi revealed that he himself tells and forces Tune to slow down and get some rest, but it doesn’t work as Weezy is a workaholic. Tez Poe even mentioned that he tries to make sure Lil Wayne pops his medication daily to stop the seizures.

“Got me on the meds; Had a talk with Tez about me on the meds; Forgot the shit he said, I’m out here on the edge” – Mula Gang

He also assured TMZ that Mr. Carter suffers from epilepsy and that was the cause of the seizures last weekend, not from drinking lean, as well as that we shouldn’t be surprised if we see Wayne suffering from more seizures in the future as he will have to deal with this disease for the rest of his life.

Lil Wayne Has Remixed Bill Withers 1972 Song Lean On Me To Be About Lean Syrup

Back in February, HOT 97’s Marisa Mendez went on Twitter to tweet that she “heard so many dope new Wayne tracks” and last week, A$AP Retro asked her about the new Lil Wayne music she had listened to.

Marisa revealed that one of the Tunechi songs she heard was “Mona Lisa” featuring Kendrick Lamar produced by Infamous, which we already know will appear on Tha Carter V.

Another Tune track that she had heard was a remix of Bill Withers‘ 1972 single, “Lean On Me“, that she says he recorded to being about lean aka syrup.

I’m really curious to hear this remix, so I hope we get it on Weezy‘s next project (possibly Dedication 6). You can listen to the Bill Withers version below! Is anyone else looking forward to hearing Wayne‘s version of it?
