Lil Wayne's Young Money Defends Justin Bieber After Racist Remarks

Mack Maine, Young Money president, says artists on the imprint, including Lil Wayne and Birdman, will continue working with Bieber.

Following two unearthed videos of Justin Bieber using the n-word and making racist comments, Young Money president Mack Maine has addressed the imprint's relationship with the singer. 

Maine says Bieber is still family for the artists on Young Money, according to TMZ. The publication reports that Maine says Bieber has Black friends and that "Bieber does not have a slave mentality." According to Mack Maine, Bieber "treats his people with respect."

Moreover, Maine says Bieber has "legitimately adopted the culture of the Hip Hop, African American culture."

The publication's report also says that "everyone in the Young Money camp" feels Bieber's age at the time of the video clips is an important aspect to keep in mind when assessing the statements. 

"I remember telling a White man, Chinese man, Black man joke as a kid that was terrible," Maine says, "and I told it to my friends because I thought they'd think it was funny."  

Mack Maine confirms that Young Money and Justin Bieber are slated to continue working together. 

Recently, Wayne referred to Justin Bieber as his little brother in a scathing rant regarding Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun
