Earlier this afternoon, hip-hop's most beloved rapper Lil Wayne arrived from Miami in New York City via private jet for his formal sentencing on weapons charges. After three weeks of delay to get some serious dental work done (eight root canals in one day -- as real as it gets), Lil Wayne is set to officially begin his sentence at one of the country's most notorious jails. Although a fire in the courthouse will delay the procedure by one more day, Wayne is sure to be an inmate imminently. (MTV)
