Lil Wayne's prison sentence delayed -- again!
Thanks to a mysterious basement fire at a New York City court building that left eight people with minor injuries Tuesday, platinum selling rapper Lil Wayne’s sentencing on gun possession charges has been postponed, a court spokesman said.
The setback marks the second time the 27-year-old’s sentence has been delayed this year.
In early February, Weezy was scheduled to be sentenced to a year in prison after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon (he admitted having a loaded gun on his tour bus in 2007). But that sentencing was delayed because the rapper, known for his magnificently bling-encrusted smile, had a cracked tooth and needed dental surgery.
