The attempt to send Lil’ Wayne to jail has been amusing to watch. First, Wayne decided that he needed to prep for a year in jail by shooting nine videos in one weekend. That way we’ll all see a lot of the tear-tatooed rapper even when he’s serving time.
But that wasn’t enough. Before he could go in, Wayne also underwent eight root canals in one day. Pitchfork also says that Wayne had his diamond-encrusted teeth fixed up before he went in. Those procedures delayed his sentence for a couple of weeks, and he’s now headed to jail sometime in the next couple of days.
Lil’ Wayne is quite the character, and the kid’s got talent. That’s why it’s almost fitting that comedian Margaret Cho put this song together, called “My Lil Wayne”.
