NEW YORK — Rap star Lil Wayne has gotten a temporary reprieve from jail — for dental surgery.
The Grammy Award-winning rapper's sentencing in a New York City gun case was postponed Tuesday. His lawyer says the rapper needs to finish a string of recent surgeries for a dental problem before he goes to jail.
His sentencing is now set for March 2, and a judge says it won't be put off further.
Lil Wayne pleaded guilty in October to attempted gun possession. The case stems from a police stop of his tour bus in 2007.
