At the age of 14 rapper Lil Wayne shot himself while pretending to be Notorious B.I.G. in front of the mirror. Not a very intelligent move, right? The unfortunate story was revealed during his appearance in Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Friday March 14th.
He was asked if he had ever been shot and here’s his odd story. He was a child playing with a gun, pretending to be his childhood idol. “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,“ he recalled.
“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,” he said.
As if this was not enough, there’s another bizarre story related to the rapper.
There was a girl fan who took aim at him after a gig once. “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 were dancing 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!‘”
