Lil Wayne Gets 8 Root Canals In 8 Hours

For his sake, let’s hope that Lil’ Wayne’s body still has the ability to respond to any sort of narcotics.

Despite speculation that Wayne postponed his prison sentence for felony gun possession simply to have his diamond-studded grill worked on, TMZ reports that the rapper had a jaw-dropping eight root canals performed on his teeth on Tuesday (Feb. 16).

The session reportedly lasted eight hours, and along with the root canals, Wayne had several tooth implants re-done, new implants added, and repairs done to his few remaining real teeth.

Wayne is now due to be sentenced the pen to share showers for the next year on March 2. —Jonathan Eiseman
