NEW YORK - NEW YORK (AP) — Lil Wayne heads to court in February for sentencing in his New York gun case, just days after his next album comes out.
The rap star's sentencing date is Feb. 9, set in a Manhattan state court Tuesday. The Grammy winner said nothing during his brief court appearance.
He pleaded guilty in October to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. The charge stemmed from a 2007 traffic stop of his tour bus. His plea deal calls for a year in jail.
