Lil Wayne has long recounted a story of “accidentally” shooting himself when he was 12, playing with a 9 mm handgun. Thankfully, an off-duty cop was around to help young Tune, and he survived to become the rap star he is today. Apparently, that wasn’t the whole story, though!
On “London Roads”, a song from his newly-released Free Weezy Album, Wayne revealed that the shooting was no accident.
“Ms. Cita I remember goin’ in your gun drawer
Puttin’ it to my chest and missin’ my heart by centimeters, oh Lord
I remember dyin’ on her room floor
And wakin’ up in some police’s arms
He died recent, so I hope heaven made more room for him
And I hope he see me, cause if he didn’t save that lil boy there would be no Weezy oh Lord”
