XXcLusive: Lil Wayne’s Jail Date Moved to Monday, Court Fire Under Investigation

Lil Wayne was granted five more days of freedom. “His original date went up in smoke,” said famed hip-hop lawyer, Murray Richman, who is also the father of the rap superstar’s attorney Stacey Richman, in an interview with XXLMag.com earlier today.

As previously reported, Weezy was supposed to be sentenced and begin a one–year bid in Rikers Island yesterday (March 2), but due to a fire at the courthouse in Lower Manhattan, his moment of judgment was postponed.

According to Stacey Richman, Wayne’s new date is Monday. “But that too can change,” she said.

“That’s what the judge has directed but we don’t know if that’s going to be feasible because of the operational systems right now,” she continued. “The physical operation of the city, we don’t know if it’s going to be up or down. We don’t know about prisoner movement. We don’t know if they’ll be able to receive anybody. We don’t have that information yet. We assume by Monday things should return to normality but who knows… Potentially, it could be [longer].”

As to the cause of the fire, Ms. Richman says the city is currently investigating its origins. “Whenever there’s a fire there is an investigation as to the source of the fire, why the fire happened, you know, safety hazards all this sort of stuff,” she explained.

“In all my years—and you know I grew up in the system ’cause my dad also obviously does this—I don’t remember anything like this,” she added.

The New Orleans-bred MC pled guilty to a second degree gun possession charge last October after being caught with a gun in New York City in 2007.

This is not the first time his case has been delayed. Just last month, the rap superstar received a one-month extension in order to get dental work done before beginning his time in prison. —Jesse Gissen

    Whether you want to believe it or not, JayZ does run NY. Do you guys know that later that night weezy showed up at madison square garden and performed with Jay Z. Put 2 and 2 together folks. A little bit of pull happened here. I say this because I am sick of the corruption in the US. Especially ones connected with some evil people.

    wheres the part about Weezy showing up at JayZs show and Jay not one bit surprised that weezys there. Money buys you power. Power buys you everything.
