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 Sells His Masters For More Than $100 Million

Lil Wayne Sold His Masters For More Than 100 Million

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne‘s former manager Ronald Sweeney has filed a lawsuit against the New Orleans rapper for over $20 million.

Ronald says Wayne hired him back in 2005 to help renegotiate his deal with Cash Money Records, which we know was also another lawsuit that finally got settled in 2018. However, the attorney claims he only got a few payments for his work and is now suing Weezy for the full cut.

In the suit that was filed by lawyer Ed McPherson, Ronald Sweeney also mentions he was asked by Lil Wayne to fire Cortez Bryant in 2018 over a conflict of interest in a legal dispute about who Drake was signed to. After doing so, Sweeney claims Tez and Mack Maine then conspired to cause a disagreement and anger between himself and Tunechi in which it ended with Tune firing the attorney.

The craziest part of this lawsuit is that Wayne sold his masters to Universal Music Group in June of this year for more than $100 million. Ronald Sweeney is using this to say Mr. Carter does have the money to pay him what he is owed.

Feds Found A Gold Plated Handgun, Heroin, Ecstasy & Marijuana On Lil Wayne Private Jet

After first hearing news that Lil Wayne‘s private G-V jet had been raided at Miami International Airport on December 23rd by federal agents, due to them receiving a tip about drugs being transported on the flight, more details about the search have surfaced online.

According to Page Six, a gold-plated .45 caliber handgun and numerous drugs including heroin, ecstasy, and marijuana were all found inside a designer handbag once the FBI and ATF officers had boarded the plane from acquiring a search warrant. Wayne‘s personal chef was also found carrying approximately 20,000 dollars in cash.

Tunechi has not been charged from this search and even went on Twitter to say everything is “All goody”. Howard Srebnick, who is Tune‘s lawyer, refused to comment on the items found but did tell the Miami Herald newspaper that his client was “cleared”. However, if a large federal jury is enlisted, Weezy could still face weapons and drug charges in the future!

Lil Wayne Sues His Former Attorney For $20 Million

Lil Wayne Sues His Former Attorney For 20 Million

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne is suing his former lawyer Ronald Sweeney, who has been representing him all the way from 2005 to September last year. Wayne has filed a $20 million lawsuit against his former attorney by claiming he has been overcharged during these past 13 years.

In the court documents, Tunechi says Ronald has charged him 10% of every deal he helped close without informing him that the industry standard is only 5%. He went on to say that Sweeney has made $20 million off him alone.

The Young Money CEO added that Ron brought in help from another law firm to help in his huge lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records over Tha Carter V. Weezy says this firm got 23% from the Cash Money settlement money and 15% of the Universal Music Group settlement. This made him unhappy as this was also on top of Sweeney‘s 10%!
