Lil Wayne’s Gun Charge Sentencing Has Been Pushed Back

Lil Wayne Gun Charge Sentencing Has Been Pushed Back

It looks like Lil Wayne will have to wait a couple of months before he is sentenced for illegally carrying a gun on his private jet at the end of 2019.

According to AllHipHop, Wayne‘s attorney Howard Srebnick has claimed the January 28th sentencing date given at the virtual court hearing just over a week ago was too ambitious.

The lawyer has been successful in submitting a new request to the United States District Court for the Southern District Of Florida asking for Tunechi‘s sentencing date to be pushed back to early March.

Tune could face up to 10-years behind bars for his gun possession by a convicted felon charge, but there is a possibility of a reduced sentence, due to him pleading guilty.

Even though there has not been a date confirmed by the judge as of right now, Howard has suggested that Weezy should be sentenced on the afternoon of either March 2nd, 4th, 9th, or the 11th. I will update this post when the date gets confirmed! The new sentence date is March 4th!

Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty To Federal Firearm Charge; Faces Up To 10 Years In Prison

Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty To Federal Firearm Charge - Faces Up To 10 Years In Prison

After finding out last month Lil Wayne had been charged for carrying a gold-plated .45-caliber Glock handgun in his luggage on his private jet that he claimed was a Father’s Day gift on December 23rd, 2019, Wayne had his first court appearance yesterday.

Tunechi pleaded guilty to the gun possession by a convicted felon charge by telling the judge over a virtual hearing in a Miami federal court: “Your honor, I plead guilty”.

The sentencing for Weezy is scheduled for next month on January 28th, 2021 and unfortunately, he faces up to 10 years in prison, due to having a previous gun charge from over 10 years ago. However, the punishment may not be as harsh as that after taking responsibility!

Lil Wayne Recalls Working With Mac Miller On The Question, Explains The Difference Between Hearing & Listening

A “Celebration Of Life” tribute concert was held for the late Mac Miller, who died from a drug overdose on September 7th, at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California on October 31st.

During the benefit show that included performances from Action Bronson, Anderson.Paak, Chance The Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, Miguel, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, Vince Staples, and more, there was a big screen that played messages for Mac from music artists that couldn’t make it.

One of these shout outs that played on the screen was from Lil Wayne at his TRUKSTOP skate park, who shared his memories of Miller and recalled doing their “The Question” collaboration together back in 2012. Wayne also went on to explain the difference between “listening” and “hearing”.

You can check out Tunechi‘s video message after the jump below. The concert allowed viewers to donate to The Mac Miller Circles Fund (TMMCF) to support youth arts and community-building programs in Mac Miller‘s memory. Rest In Peace!

Lil Wayne Explains Why Tyler, The Creator Changed The Rap Game & Shares An Inspirational Speech About Working Hard To Be Somebody

Lil Wayne Explains Why Tyler The Creator Changed The Rap Game & Shares An Inspirational Speech About Being Somebody

A couple of weeks ago, Tyler, The Creator released his “Cherry Bomb” documentary. Unfortunately, I have not managed to watch it yet, but I did see a clip online of Lil Wayne‘s part in the doc.

In the clip, Tunechi can be seen explaining why Tyler, The Creator changed the rap game, as well as how people are only hearing Tyler‘s music and not listening to it. Tune also shared some words of wisdom:

“Work hard, be somebody, be something more than what you see in the mirror. Let the world be your mirror, don’t let them judge you, cause the mirror can’t judge you. You judge what you see in the mirror.”

Lil Wayne Due For DNA Hearing In NYC Gun Case

Lil Wayne Due For DNA Hearing In NYC Gun Case

Lil Wayne has a date in a Manhattan courtroom, but DNA science will take center stage.

A hearing on a DNA profiling technique used in the rapper’s 2007 gun-possession case was due to start Wednesday. It concerns a process used for identifying people from tiny amounts of DNA — including some that prosecutors say ties the Grammy Award-winner to a gun found on his tour bus after a concert.

The 27-year-old has pleaded not guilty. He faces at least 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted.

The hearing aims to establish whether what’s known as low copy number DNA profiling has general scientific acceptance.
