By the skin of his teeth

Lil’ Wayne’s prison sentence has been delayed by a month because of dental surgery, which should come as no surprise to anyone who’s ever looked at a picture of him grinning with a gob full of metal. He was due to start his one-year prison term for gun possession yesterday, but instead is now going to be spending the next few weeks recovering from this Friday’s surgery and is going to the can on 2 March.

In honour of this, Weezy also recorded a farewell message for his fans, which he made in the studio while he was pounding out nine music videos in the space of 48 hours. It’s actually quite heartfelt too.

‘For all the people that didn't know, this is the last time you gonna be seeing me live for a long motherf**kin’ time,’ he said. ‘Tonight’s my last night, I came to the studio to get some work done. To all you artists out there, that should be a message or example. I came to work.

‘I'm out this bitch. To all my fans, my real fans, I really, really, really truly love you. I love you with all of me, for real. I’ll probably be loving everything else because I love you so much. Thank you from the bottom [of my heart]. Do not forget about me 'cause I will forever think about you, and I cannot wait for you to see me again. I'm out.’
