Lil Wayne is Not Getting Grill Removed, Says Lawyer

Many speculated that Lil Wayne would be getting his diamond grill removed before going behind bars for gun charges, yet the rap superstar’s lawyer assures fans that is not the case.

In an interview with New York Magazine, Wayne’s defense attorney, Stacey Richman, said that the rapper’s signature grills will indeed stay intact. While MTV News reported that the New Orleans-bred MC’s sentence date and jail term would be postponed due to dental surgery for a cracked tooth, Richman is unaware what the exact procedure is.

When asked why the surgery wasn’t done before the February 9 court date, Richman said Weezy’s dentist had to go on a last-minute charity mission to Nicaragua.

The Young Money general is now expected to get sentenced on March 2.

As previously reported, Birdman, Jr. was arrested in July 2007, following a concert at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre. After smelling marijuana coming from Wayne’s tour bus, officers pulled the vehicle over and allegedly found a .40 caliber semi-automatic loaded gun belonging to the rapper.

Originally claiming innocence, Weezy switched his plea last year for a lesser charge. On October 22, 2009 the rap superstar officially pled guilty to a second-degree attempted gun possession charge. He will most likely only have to serve eight-months on good behavior of his one-year sentence.
