If Lil Wayne thinks arson is the way to delay his prison term, he’s probably wasting his efforts. You’re gonna have to do the time at some point, dawg!

Just kidding. He had nothing to do with it, but you have to admit, it’s pretty funny that Lil Wayne’s trip to prison has been delayed a second time now.

All thanks to a fire in the courthouse where he was to appear for sentencing Tuesday. February 9, the rapper got a reprieve because of … dental work.

That was weird enough. Today, he was inbound on a plane from Miami to New York when a smoky basement fire shut the courthouse down for a day.

It took an hour to control the fire, and five firefighters, two civilians and a prisoner were hurt. No word on which of Weezy’s henchmen lit the blaze.

Kidding again.

Lil Wayne is going to jail. One of these days.

Having been convicted on a weapons charge and facing prison time, whenever it happens, Lil Wayne had posted a farewell of sorts Monday on Twitter:

“yesterday i smiled,today i smirked tomorrow i stop…………………….thanks all for your thoughts and prayers,they’re needed.”

Also needed? Punctuation.

The rapper’s been hella busy in the weeks leading up to what’s expected to be a year in jail, shooting nine videos in a 48-hour stretch at one point.

Lil Wayne’s attorney, Stacey Richman, says he’s actually upset about the delay: “Once you make up your mind to do something, you want to do it.”

He also applied that philosophy to Nivea Hamilton… and Lauren London. This prison term is really gonna slow down his rate of knocking up skanks.
