Lil Wayne Turns to FBI for Help in Gun Case
Lil Wayne is looking for a lil' help from the man ... seriously. The rapper has tapped a former FBI geneticist to help him beat his New York felony gun case. According to reports, Wayne has hired Bruce Budowle to challenge the DNA test that matched him to cells swabbed off the gun.
According to court documents, Budowle has been brought in to argue that, "with too few cells to test conventionally, Manhattan prosecutors relied instead on a problematic test called low copy number typing."

Wayne's case took an unfortunate turn last year when one of his assistants testified that he saw guns and drugs on the rapper's tour bus. No further details have been released.
In other Wayne news, the rapper recently canceled his European tour, which was set to begin July 2 in Paris. According to reports, Weezy is out on doctor-approved rest, and will not appear in any of the originally scheduled seven dates.
