LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- U.S. rapper Lil Wayne, who is preparing to serve a 1-year jail sentence for weapons possession, taped nine music videos last weekend, MTV News said.
The hip-hop artist was scheduled to begin serving his sentence Tuesday, but a New York judge said he could wait until March 2 so he can undergo necessary dental surgery. Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to felony weapons possession last year after police found a loaded semi-automatic gun in his tour bus.
Video director David Rousseau told MTV he and the Cash Money team think they may have set a record for most music videos shot in 48 hours.
Rousseau said he and his crew started setting up for the production around 9 a.m. Friday and wrapped up early Sunday morning.
"We knew what our deadline was. We're trying to get maximum coverage for Wayne. Most of the time we only shot Wayne's verses -- we'll finish the rest of the videos off in the next couple of weeks," the director told MTV News Tuesday before Lil Wayne's sentencing was postponed. "It was basically a 'Mission: Impossible' (scenario.) This is your mission if you choose to accept it. Everybody is on board because everybody knows what's at stake. Unlike T.I. and some of these other guys that's disappeared while they were in, the point is to keep Wayne (visible) on TV and everything for whatever time he's in. ... He's at the height of his career, you can't let that momentum slip."
