Lil Wayne now admits he intentionally shot himself in the chest– for years, it was believed to be an unintentional shooting– and Bob was the police officer who came to his rescue, declining to let him pass away.
Now, all these years later, Waynes still attempting to repay Bob. Its not the very first time hes attempted either– you may recall his 2015 track “London Roads” in which he rapped about Bob conserving him, and recommended the ex-cop had actually died.
However, Bob was still alive … and states he connected with Wayne to let him understand all reports or reports of his death were greatly overemphasized.
Lil Waynes never forgotten “Uncle Bob”– the former New Orleans police officer who saved his life when he tried suicide at age 12– and hes informed him hes got his back for life if he ever needs anything.
Bob says he hasnt taken up Weezy on the generous deal, however there have actually been speak about him joining Weezys group in some sort of administrative capacity … its still TBD.
Uncle Bob states Wayne was actually prepared to pay for his funeral service. Thankfully, that wasnt needed.
If you do not know … Lil Wayne recently opened about his mental health struggles as a kid and the occurrence with “Uncle Bob” when he was 12.
“Uncle Bob,” whose real name is Robert Hoobler, tells TMZ … he saw Lil Wayne in 2019 when the rap artist was in NOLA for a radio show, whichs when Wayne provided to supply Bob with financial backing if he ever required it, informing Bob all he needs to do is state the word.
