Update: Lil Wayne Sentencing Postponed Again, Lawyer Speaks on New Court Date

Lil Wayne has managed to catch another break. The Young Money General’s scheduled sentencing for a 2007 gun charge in New York City was postponed this afternoon (March 2), due to a courthouse fire, reports the Associated Press.

As previously reported Weezy was scheduled to appear in court today and receive a one-year sentence for a second degree gun possession charge that he plead guilty to last October. Last month, the rap superstar received a one-month extension in order to get dental work done before beginning his time behind bars.

Court spokesman David Bookstaver told the AP that the sentencing was among proceedings canceled due a basement fire at a Lower Manhattan courthouse. The court will be closed for the remainder of the day.

XXLmag.com spoke to Lil Wayne’s lawyer Stacey Richman about the status of the New Orleans-bred MC’s sentencing. According to the defense attorney Wayne does not have a new court date as-of-yet. “We are hoping it will be tomorrow,” she wrote in an email.

  • bitches

    I seriously think XXL posts these articles so you little bitches can sit and have your bitchfest while polishing your nails, get off dudes dick it’s funny to see how people who supposedly “hate” dude waste every min of their lives telling everyone about it, shut the fuck up and go do something you “enjoy”! you know what enjoy means? Prob not as you are so use to spending your life hating, boohoo you gay ass bitch, and you call yourselves rap fans? This look more like the gay parade. Is that a pink flag I see you waving?

    • jtm

      i hate him because he is fucking up hip hop.
