New York — Rapper Lil Wayne will go directly to jail after he is sentenced by a Manhattan judge Tuesday afternoon for a gun conviction, according to a person familiar with the case.

Dwayne Carter, as he is known legally, pleaded guilty to felony gun charges in a deal with prosecutors October 2009. He is expected to get a one-year prison sentence.

His sentencing was delayed three weeks so he could get some dental work done, including removal of his diamond-studded braces.

The person familiar with the case would not confirm where Wayne would serve his sentence.
