The Blessing and the Curse of Lil Wayne’s Candy Addiction: Jail Postponement, Eight Root Canals


Let no one say that the judge who postponed Lil Wayne’s prison stay in order for the rapper to get dental work was going easy on the man — TMZ reports Wayne endured an eight-hour procedure on Tuesday that involved eight root canals, significant tooth implant repair, and some much needed grill work. There’s not enough syrup and Skittles in the world to make that session tolerable. Wayne will get another week and half to heal and polish off what remains of his countertops full of candy before reporting to Rikers on March 2nd.
