Lil Wayne Still on Probation in Arizona for '08 Bust; Scheduled to Appear Tonight In Phoenix

Lil Wayne seems to be in no hurry to get back to the state that busted him in 2008 for drug violations, having postponed his Monday night charity concert at Celebrity Theatre.

A representative at the Phoenix theater told us about an hour ago that, last she heard, "he was getting on a plane to head down here" for a rescheduled appearance at 7 p.m. tonight.

The delay was due to a problem with his private jet, reportedly, and doesn't seem to be related to any legal issues with his term of Arizona probation, which is still in effect.
