On August 2010, a lawsuit was brought against a man who was caught impersonating Lil Wayne's manager Cortez Bryant and booking and collecting money from promoters after falsely booking Young Money artist Drake for shows.
Now the Juice has exclusively learned that another person (or persons) has been sending out emails to independent promoters regarding a bogus "I Am Not A Human Being/Young Money Forever" tour. The individual(s) is addressing him or herself once again as Cortez Bryant as well as his general manager Nina Packer and is alleging the tour includes Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Birdman, Tyga and Mack Maine, as well as other YM members and Chris Brown, who is not signed to Young Money or Cash Money. The trek is supposedly scheduled to kick off March 2011.
The email states that "every show will be booked directly by Young Money Entertainment and Universal Motown" and is asking for several thousand dollars as a holding fee. The emails are coming from the false addresses firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The only problem is Lil Wayne's domestic touring is handled by Live Nation and Shawn Gee of SEFG LLC exclusively, and while he is managed by Cortez Bryant and Gee Roberson of Hip Hop Since 1978, neither of the above email addresses are legit.
Management is currently investigating the matter and hopes to catch the con artist soon.
