Lil WayneBelieve it or not -- after preparing a farewell video and gearing up to be gone from the spotlight for a year with a Rolling Stone cover story and performance at the Grammys -- Lil Wayne's sentencing has been delayed. Thanks to a tricky tooth, Weezy will not be sentenced today (Feb. 9). Instead, the rapper will return to court on March 2 to face the fire.

Wayne is reportedly undergoing dentist surgery on Feb. 12 so the judge has postponed the sentencing and cut the rapper a break.

Young Money associate Mack Maine tweeted the news of the delay. "Extension till march 2nd!!!!! Thanx for da prayers LOVE y'all...and Wayne said thanx for da prayers too..ym!!!"
