Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne introduced fans to some previously unknown facts about himself heading into the weekend after revealing he accidentally shot himself as a teenager.
According to Weezy F. Baby, the incident took place back in the mid-1990’s.
When he was 14, he also shot himself on accident while watching the Notorious B.I.G.‘s “Big Poppa” music video in the mirror. “My a** was tryin’ to be hard, lookin’ in the mirror, trippin’ and it went off,” he said. He woke up to the police at his door. “I gathered myself and I slid on my own blood ’cause we had wooden floors, thank God,” said Wayne. “I used the floor and I slid on my blood and I kicked the door and they heard me kick the door and they opened the door.” (Rap-Up)
Outside of going down memory lane, Wayne recently talked about his upcoming Tha Carter V album.
“25 to 35 million would get me to do another solo album after this,” Weezy told MTV News after taking a deep breath and a second to think out his answer. “I didn’t smile when I said it,” he pointed out to us in an effort to show just how serious he really is. “I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes and it’s definitely the final Carter album. It’s the final Carter album. It’s stopping at five.” (MTV)
During a New Orleans concert last month, Young Money’s Drake broke big news of Wayne’s new LP release date.
Tha Carter V is coming sooner than you think. During the kickoff to NBA All-Star Weekend, Drake revealed the release date for Lil Wayne’s highly-anticipated album. The Toronto MC shared the stage with the Young Money chief at the Sprite NBA All-Star party at the House of Blues in New Orleans on Friday night, where he made the big announcement. “If you want to hear Lil Wayne at his best, if you wanna hear Young Money at they best… Carter V, May 5,” said Drizzy. “Just know we about this sh*t for real.” (Rap-Up)
Over summer 2013, Weezy F. Baby said he saw himself hanging up the microphone after Carter V dropped.
“Yes, very true,” Wayne said when asked if his retirement plans are still on deck. “I want to retire after Tha Carter V which I hope will be my last album. My next album’s not Tha Carter V because I think I have to work on other albums as well with my pop, Birdman, and things like that. But after Tha Carter V, I hope I can retire. [laughs] … [I’ll be able to do] things like spend quality time with my kids.” (“The Jimmy Kimmel Show”)
