A court spokesman says rap star Lil Wayne's sentencing in a New York City gun case has been postponed because of a courthouse fire.The rapper had been expected to start a one-year jail term after sentencing Tuesday. He pleaded guilty in October to attempted criminal possession of a weapon.

Courts spokesman David Bookstaver said the sentencing was among proceedings canceled due a basement fire at a Lower Manhattan courthouse.

The 27-year-old rapper entered his plea in October. He admitted having a loaded gun on his tour bus in July 2007.

He has become one of rap's biggest names and music's biggest sellers in recent years.
