Scheduled Court Appearances!

According to def sounds Lil Wayne and Yung Berg were both scheduled to appear at court today in New York. Wayne from gun possession charges he faced in 2007. In that incident a .40 caliber handgun was found by authorities in his tour bus last July following a performance with Ja Rule at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre. Representatives from Wayne's camp said that the multi-platinum selling artist could not show because of a dental condition that restricts him from driving.

Wayne, who has pleaded not guilty to the weapons possession charges, faces up to three and a half years in prison if convicted.

Berg's gun charges stem from an arrest this past weekend. He also faces charges of marijuana possession and menacing. He also did not show up for his court appearance today, which was at the same courthouse.

No word yet on if a warrant has been issued for either rapper.
