Lil Wayne: ‘I shot myself and passed out when I was 14’

Rapper Lil Wayne has revealed he once shot himself while posing in front of a mirror pretending to be his hero Notorious B.I.G. During an appearance on Friday night’s (14Mar14) Jimmy Kimmel Live! in America, the pint-sized hip-hop heavyweight was asked if he had ever been shot – and he had a very bizarre story to tell.
The rap star explained he was 14 when a gun went off as he was fooling around at home and he had to slide to the front door in his own blood to get help.
He recalled, “I was watching a Notorious B.I.G. video… and… (I) was looking in the mirror, tripping… and it went off and… I woke up to the knocks of the police at the door.
“I was in my mom’s room and I was kind of far from the door… I heard them stop knocking and I was like, ‘They left me’… I gathered myself and I slid on my own blood, because we had wooden floors, thank God… and I kicked the door and they heard me kick the door and they opened the door.”
And Lil Wayne also revealed a crazed fan once took aim at him after a gig, adding, “She was just a very persistent fan… We didn’t know what she actually wanted…
“Once we got on the road, the bus driver was like, ‘Hey, those girls are on the side of us…’ We were all hyped and we was dancing (sic) and I was standing up in the window and gunshots went off.
“He (bus driver) started swerving and stuff. We were more upset at him because we were like, ‘You’re gonna kill us!'”
