New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne is once again being sued by a promoter for being a no-show.

Weezy is facing fresh embarrassment in a lawsuit over a missed gig in the Bahamas – promoters of the show allege he was too drunk to take the stage.

The Lollipop hitmaker was hired by Red City Entertainment and given a $210,000 advance to perform for 5,500 fans in Nassau last September (08).

When he didn’t show for the concert, police were called in and allegedly found the star passed out in his hotel room.

“This was targeted as a showcase for Lil’ Wayne,” said Glenn Gitomer, a lawyer for the New Jersey promotions company.

“Then police found him intoxicated in his hotel room…It was a great expense just to accommodate him.”

Lil Wayne Sued For Cancelled Show, Manager Responds

Red City Entertainment has sued New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne over a September 27, 2008 cancelled show in the Bahamas.                                                                                                                                                                               

According to TMZ, Red City had planned on paying Weezy $432,000 for the show, and had given him an advance of $210,000. However, Red City representatives allege Wayne was found in his hotel room “unconscious” at the time he was supposed to be performing.                                                                                                                                                      

The rappers’ manager Cortez Bryant has spoken out on the issue, arguing the cancelled show was a rescheduled performance from the day before.                                                                                                                                                               

Our show was set for September 26 last year. We arrived on time, ready to perform and learned that due to lack of payment from the promoters, the sound company they had hired packed up and left the venue before Wayne was scheduled to hit the stage. So they were forced to cancel the show. On those grounds, at that moment, they were in breach of contract and forfeited their deposit,” he said in a statement to AllHipHop.com.                                                  

Explaining that Wayne had agreed to reschedule for a performance the next day, Bryant said the promoters failed to follow proper procedures that satisfied their contract. “When I arrived at the venue, the security was horrible, causing it to be an unsafe environment and the sound system wasn’t up to our contracted standard.” Continuing, Bryant stated, “I then told the promoters Wayne wasn’t coming because they didn’t have their setup to a contracted standard for the second night in a row.”                                                                                                                                                                       

Red City Entertainment is seeking $432,000 in the lawsuit.

In the midst of legal troubles that could possibly lead him to some serious jail time, New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne has hired a former FBI Geneticist, to assist in the gun charges he is currently facing in New York.

According to the New York Post Wayne hired former FBI Geneticist Bruce Budowle to challenge the DNA results which connected him to the .40 caliber handgun that was found in his tour bus in 2007 after a performance with Queens rapper Ja Rule.

Budowle will reportedly argue that the prosecution may have used an unreliable method for testing the weapon for the DNA.

Budowle was previously active when he testified on behalf of prosecutors in the murder trial of Scott Peterson.

Wayne’s defense have dismissed the claims from the arresting officer that they smelled marijuana in the bus, which is what incited the search of the tour bus.

Wayne has pleaded not guilty to two felony charges of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.

If He is convicted by New York State Law he could face up to three years in prison, along with other fines.

Lil Wayne was present in a Yuma County, Arizona court, as the judge gave him pretrial updates on his drug possession and weapons charges.

The charges stem from January, when Wayne was arrested in Yuma near a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint. Police reports note officers found cocaine, Ecstasy and a hand gun in his vehicle.

James Tilson is Wayne’s attorney, and he is hoping to help his client out by questioning the training of the drug sniffing dog that helped search the car.

Border officials have not turned in training records for the dog and Tilson says it’s vital to the case.

If the dog is not reliable, then that puts the entire probable cause for the stop into question,” he said, in an Associated Press report

Tilson is also hoping to see something in video cameras that may have taped the arrest. The judge has issued another court date, August 11, for this matter. Wayne has pleaded not guilty to all charges. This follows another drug bust charge. In March, a judge dismissed similar charges that came from 2006.
