(Newser) – Lil Wayne will wait until March 2 to begin serving his one-year term for a weapons charge. The rapper won a postponement today so he could have dental surgery on Friday. The prosecution agreed that Wayne, who has a cracked tooth, would get better care from his own dentist than at Riker's Island, MTV reports. Meanwhile, the star took time to say goodbye to his fans via streaming video this morning.
