Come 2010, Lil Wayne will have to face the music. The rap superstar appeared in court for a brief appearance this morning (December 15) where a judge set a February 9 sentencing date regarding his New York gun possession case.
XXLMag.com confirmed with his attorney, Stacey Richman, that not only will Weezy be officially sentenced, but he is also scheduled to surrender himself to authorities and be shipped off to prison on that same day. He is expected to face 366 days behind bars.
As previously reported the New Orleans-bred MC plead guilty to a second-degree attempted gun possession charge last October. The rapper was originally arrested and charged in 2007 after a performance in NYC’s Beacon Theater when a police officer claimed she discovered a firearm upon boarding his tour bus for suspicion of marijuana. —Elan Mancini
