Lil Wayne heads to NY jail in February

Lil Wayne heads to jail in February in his New York gun case, just days after his next album comes out.

The rap star's sentencing date is Feb. 9, set in a Manhattan state court Tuesday. The Grammy winner said nothing during his brief court appearance.

He pleaded guilty in October to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. The charge stemmed from a 2007 traffic stop of his tour bus. His plea deal calls for a year in jail.

Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman announced on his Twitter account last week that Lil Wayne's next album, “Rebirth,” is due for release Feb. 1.
