Lil Wayne To Begin Year-Long Sentence

Update: Wayne's sentence is postponed until March 2 due to Dental surgery.

Rapper Lil Wayne will soon begin sentencing following an incident that involved the rapper being caught with a loaded gun in 2007. He will appear in front of a judge for his formal sentencing and he is then expected to turn himself in some time today.

Wayne is expected to serve a year in prison as a result of criminal possession of a weapon charges, but he may be able to serve only eight months if he can maintain good behavior while in prison.

In a video that was posted earlier today Lil Wayne said his farewell and also gave thanks to his closest fans.

“I’m out this bitch,” said Lil Wayne in his video. “To all my fans, my real fans, I really, really, really truly love you. I love you with all of me, for real. I’ll probably be loving everything else because I love you so much. Thank you from the bottom [of my heart]. Do not forget about me ’cause I will forever think about you, and I cannot wait for you to see me again. I’m out.”

In the video, the 27-year-old rapper also briefly touched on Sunday night’s Super Bowl and his lack of computer know-how.



Lil Wayne’s year-long sentence will be served at New York’s Riker’s Island.  

Judge Charles H. Solomon has postponed Lil Wayne’s sentencing so the Grammy award winning rapper can have dental surgery in Miami. As DX and various other news sources reported earlier, Wayne was scheduled to be formally sentenced and to begin his sentence today.

After entering the courtroom at 2 p.m., Wayne’s lawyer, Stacey Richman, informed the judge that Cash Money’s flagship artist was suffering from a cracked tooth. A request was sent in to the Manhattan DIstrict Attorney’s Office to postpone the sentencing until February 25. The surgery requires a week to 10 days to recover from, so Judge Solomon chose March 2 instead.

“I dont want this to get pushed back anymore,” Judge Solomon said. “This is the last adjournment.”

      wow, you have got to be the most ignorant person i've ever seen typing. Learn to spell and what the fuck is yung money??? It took me about 40 minutes just to figure out what the hell you were trying to say. Please do the world a favor and read a book.

  • Ben

    That stupid piece of shit only gets a year because of the money he has, he can pay people to let him off easy. Any normal working white man would get many more years than that, even if he had a permit, which I doubt Lil Dumbshit even had. His lawyer is a crock, it does not take a week to ten days for a cracked tooth, in and out in less than an hour, send his no-talent ass to jail. It takes less recovery time to get that tooth yanked out.

    • pinky duncan

    Lil Wayne put himself in jail on purpose to sell a thug image. he probably thought he would go to rich white man jail cuz of his money. wrong

    If a BITCH picks lil Wayne over Big L, they obviously have know knowledge of Big L which in turn implies they aren't real Hip Hoppas. They're just infatuated with 'rappers' not 'Hip Hop Artists'

  • Holier then thou

    Lol his grill saved his ass a few more weeks. That's how you know he's famous

  • jbeezy

    almost 98% of y'all is on some lame shit. talkin all this shyt like u on the cash money payroll. "to all my fans, i really, really, really..." lol u think these guys actually care about anyone of y'all. but ppl on here threatening each other and shyt, its sooo lame. bottom line strip his celebrity status= he is a man who broke the law= goin to jail. i dont wish no body to go to jail because i dont believe in the whole jail system (its a form of modern day slavery thats all, nobody rehabilitates in jail) but this would happen to 100% of the ppl on here, and we'd be looking at alot more than one year. honestly i hope u does get fukked in the butt for wearing all those tight ass pants and shit. like this guys a known drug addict (the purp) and he makes millions. hip hop which= society is soo messed up, ppl need to wake up, it will be OUR children who pay the price. one love, peace

  • Breezy

  • i wanna beat up jimmy

    He's gettin his teeth removed. For better suck mouth.

  • Mr. Gimik

    man people are funny. u bitch about how artists make the same sounding shit all the time. noones original and laddi daddi da. last i checked c1 dont sound like c2 and c2 def dont sound like c3 and none of it is rock soooo its all different from rebirth, the last 4 lil wayne albums have been original in their own way. jus cus YOU didnt like the direction of his music doesnt mean hes not original. #1 Wayne put out a rock album. That alone seperates him from most (as far as everyday rappers go, he was willing to experiment) #2 Hes heavily influenced by his drug use therefore the martian thing in his music is orignal. #3 Even if Wayne makes a WHOLE album about his jail experiance atleast you know it's real this time. If he does this it will be another notch in originality on a Wayne album considering he doesnt rap about bein locked up. The only thing unoriginal about Lil Wayne is the hate you people put into him while he's still selling millions. The same thing happened to Game, 50 Cent, Ja Rule and the list goes on. This may sound racist and I apologize if it does BUUUUT African American folks HATE to see their own succeed, yet are the first to bitch about someone that doesnt succeed. THAT'S THE ULTIMATE FAIL. As far as Wayne selling out....THATS THE GOAL is to make as much money as possible....Its not selling out its cashing in. Haters are pathetic. ANY HATE. Ima Wayne FAN not a stan nor a nutrider but the hate on this kid is ridiculous

  • Haitian the Hater

    Wezy not going to jail til March. The sucker is having dental surgery to remove his diamond grill. He will be beaten to death for it if he doesn't. That is a surgical tuck my chain procedure. How pussy? That is sooo pussy. He is prom night with a porn star pussy. Vanessa Delrio aint more pussty than Weezy. He rep pussy more than Massingill. He rep being pussy more than Koyex.

  • I'm at work and bored

    "Wayne's sentence is postponed until March 2 due to Dental surgery. " ahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha what a bitch

  • Harry Richardson

    He aint even going to be in population, niggas talking like he got to worry about dropping the soap, he will never even be around prisoners other then trustees , I'm just schooling you internet thugs on how it really is

    • JasonCTown

      I think most people are just being comedians, and have no idea how it actually works. I'd tell you to lighten up, but that wouldnt get either of us anywhere.

  • John-Boy

    Good by and good riddance. A year without auto-tune. Thank God. Its like a music vacation.

    • bryson

      nigga yo name is john-boy..ha u dont even needa b commentin on here duck ass make u a john doe ;)

    • TONYdaGHOST

      well if he didnt get involved in a whole buncha stupid shit, he wouldnt be in this situation. Dude just got lucky because he's a celebrity. That year in prison is like sending him to time out in the corner so he can "think about what he did". If they really wanna punish him, they should put his ass in there with all the other inmates. Bet he wont fuck up again lol. Sorry if I sound insensitive, but you cant feel sorry for people that fuck themselves over

    • Whiterthanmost

      Co-sign. Hate lil Wayne. Hate going to jail.

    • BWS-Fish

  • d-skrilly

    @otay hey hey hey,although lil waynes wack now,the carter(ghostwritten) was off the charts,like if you bump it to this day thats how i wish my former favorite rapper since lights out(ghost written) was to this day but hes all fake every rapper these days are faaaaaaaaaaake

  • d-skrilly

    1.50 set em up fasho,thats why he never made any of his shows after in ny hes too scared to go back after he find out the consequences of pullin bitch moves…same goes for birdman “i can have a nigga run up on you witta shank,for just a few pennies out my piggy bank” 2.if he doesnt get killed in jail,if hes not on a maximum security watch,then im sure he’ll get some ghostwriter to write him an album full of material about redemption or how theyve seen the light just like the move ti pulled on paper trail titled “life behind bars(BARZ/play on words) 3.or CM/YM will have a hot boys or cashmoney millionaires reunion without him(best thing to ever happen) and itll be even more marketing attention grabbing to fans who have no idea what hot boys were and itll be soooo hard to wait so they can finally be together kissing eachother again except for mannie fresh,the most talented off anything from anyone asscociated with that. MAN HE FRESH 4.if not my last prediction is,the katrina effect,there are thirty nine videos,mixtapes,songs,features blah blah blah thats cashmoneyyoungmoney is going to release while hes in the pin sharin showers and flood all the idiot pop fans with bullshit until he gets out and everyone will be like “OH MY GOD WE FORGOT YOU WERE GONE THATS HOW BEST RAPPER ALIVE-ISH YOU ARE,see even if hes gone hes still the number 1 blah blah blah” wait last one 5. cant believe i forgot,karma will finally take its part and CURREN$Y da hot spittah will rain supreme over the airwaves and not sellout!!!!!! since he is the best from the N.O. oh wait you have to be a sellout to be get recognition,whoops never mind 6.oh shit i completely forgot,baby and slim will pull a dame dash/rocafella move like they did on odb(also what the world did to the king of pop) (and what bad boy did to biggie) and know there number 1 artistt is setup for death or fall,and rape the muthafuckin benefits for as long as they live thats what BIRDMAN WOULD DO,he’s all bout family(as in blood related not as in the gang like hemoglobin),and waynes just a boy toy who has been programmed to get money since day one for the williams family BABY= lifetime hustler achievement award co-sign what numbers your leaning towards!!!!!!!!!

  • Orange Juice Simpson

    somehow the blogging always turns out to be about the same things no matter what the article is about... everybody knows exactly what's going to happen...he's going to be in there for a bit...released early..and sell millions of records because the kids believe that if you go to Jail it makes you gangster and being a gangster is the coolest thing to be.. I wonder how they are going to smuggle cough syrup in there...

  • best rapper alive

    why does 50 cent kanye west and lil wayne continue to be on top lists other than mediocre or attention whore lists,i dont understand it,did the people making these lists start listening to music after 2002 or something????

    • JasonCTown

      You can almost assign an age to most people, solely based on the list they provide. Most lists suck leaky butt sauce anyway.
