Lil' Wayne Holds Court in NYC

9/8/2008 2:08 PM PDT
File under the category of Rarer Sighting than Sasquatch. Lil' Wayne actually showed up for court today in New York.

The guy who canceled a court appearance because of dental problems showed up for his weapons possessions case, even after he was partying 2,475 miles away after the VMAs in L.A.

We're told Mr. Lil' was "attentive" and "wide awake" -- meaning, he actually kept his eyes open.
