Warrant Issued For Lil Wayne In Arizona While He Is In Jail In NYC



It seems to me they are doing everything they can to pull lil Wayne from the top, and keep him at the bottom. An Arizona judge issued a bench warrant Tuesday for Grammy Award-winning rapper Lil Wayne after he failed to appear for a hearing on drug and weapons charges because he is serving jail time in New York. A Yuma County Superior Court judge issued the warrant after the entertainer, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, failed to appear in court for a final trial management conference.

But Lil Wayne’s attorney, James Tilson, said his client couldn’t appear because he is already serving a one-year jail sentence for having a loaded gun on his tour bus. The rapper began serving that sentence March 8 at the Rikers Island jail complex. If these new charges go threw he will be in Jail for up to 3 years..

Lil Wayne was arrested in January 2008 at a bordercheckpoint 78 miles east of Yuma after authorities say they found cocaine, Ecstasy and a handgun on his tour bus. The 27-year-old rap star has been charged with one count each of possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, misconduct involving weapons and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He has plead not guilty to all the charges.


Tilson said he has filed motions to have Lil Wayne’s March 30 trial date vacated, and asked the court that his client be allowed to appear in Yuma when he finishes his New York jail sentence. He also has asked that his bond remain the same.

“It does not appear that a trial will be occurring anytime within the next eight to 12 months,” Tilson said.

But Yuma County prosecutor Deann Sandry said it was the state’s position that Lil Wayne is now a convicted felon and that a bench warrant should be issued and his bond be increased to $150,000.

Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” was the best-selling album of 2008 and won a Grammy for best rap album. His latest album, “Rebirth,” was released last month.


  1. Yeah he is there major cash cow and there going to milk the shit out of him. Wayane will still make it financially I don’t don’t about emotionally but trust me it will either make him even stronger or he will break down wayane keep your head up homie and read feed your mind now not the flesh

  2. I don’t feel sorry for these rappers that put themselves in that position. Do anybody feel sorry for the regular (no celebrity) brother that got caught up? Get the F*** out of here with that bull. You put yourself in that situation then you get what you get.

  3. I feel sorry for him! Ithink what people fail to realize is that these rappers arent ordinary people! They have just as many haters as they do fans! They need to protect themselves anyway possible and it happens to be by having agun then so be it! And as far as the drugs they just need to send him to rehalb like they do the white celebs!

  4. If you think this is injustice, you ‘re and idiot. He had cocaine, ecstasy, and a gun on his bus. You can’t just gloss over that. If he stops doing stupid things maybe his dumb ass will stay out of jail.
