Lil Wayne will never forget Robert Hoobler, a.k.a. “Uncle Bob,” the former New Orleans cop who saved his life when he attempted suicide as a child. So much so that years later, he offered Bob financial assistance.
Hoobler recently told TMZ that he met Wayne in 2019 — 25 years after the event — when the Young Money rapper returned to New Orleans for a radio broadcast. Weezy volunteered to aid Bob financially at their meeting, saying, “All he needs to do is give the word.”
Uncle Bob respectfully declined the offer, but it appears like Lil Wayne is adamant on repaying Bob for rescuing him. There has been talk about him joining Weezy’s crew as an administrative assistant, according to TMZ.
Uncle Bob was mentioned in Lil Wayne’s 2015 song “London Roads,” in which he implied that Bob had died. He rapped, “I recall dying on her chamber floor/And waking up in the arms of some cop/He died recently, so I hope Heaven makes more room for him.”
Wayne was reportedly willing to pay for Hoobler’s funeral. However, Bob claims that he contacted Weezy to inform him that he was still alive.
Lil Wayne opened up about his attempted suicide and how Uncle Bob saved his life during a recent interview with former NFL star Emmanual Acho.
Wayne was thought to have accidently shot himself in the chest when he was 12 years old for many years. However, he later stated that it was a suicide attempt when his mother forbade him from rapping since he had skipped school.
“I was just thinking to myself, ‘You know what?’ I was looking in the mirror. “I started thinking I had to make myself upset, and then I realized I didn’t have to,” Wayne recounted. “It was after I pulled the trigger that I realized I had mental health issues.”
When police officers arrived at his mother’s apartment in response to his 911 call, Lil Wayne claims they stepped over his heavily bleeding body and instead searched the property for drugs and guns.
Uncle Bob, a local off-duty cop, responded quickly and transported the young Dwayne Carter to the hospital, saving his life.
He claimed, “[He] grabbed me up and just started telling me stuff like, ‘You not going to die on me.'” “So he drove me to the hospital… He double-checked that I was fine.”
Wayne remembered running into Bob several years after the incident. He said, “I met him years later.” “He said, ‘I don’t want anything.’ I just wanted to express that I’m glad I was able to rescue a life that mattered.’
During his acceptance speech for the I Am Hip Hop award at the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, Lil Wayne also paid tribute to Uncle Bob.
[WATCH] 50 CENT AND JIMMY KIMMEL CRACK JOKES ABOUT NICKI MINAJ’S COUSIN’S FRIEND
Nicki Minaj and her cousin’s acquaintances are still being mocked. After reading the information about the COVID-19 vaccine causing testicular irritation, 50 Cent and Jimmy Kimmel cracked a few jokes while discussing the forthcoming BMF concert.
“I heard you got Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend’s testicles to be on this program, and I know this is meant to be a surprise, but I heard you got Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend’s testicles to be on this show. Is that accurate?” Kimmel inquired.
50, who is never afraid to tell a joke, jumped right in.
50 joked, “Listen, you didn’t look into the intricacies of the scenario.” “According to the details, he was set to marry. The testicles, I believe, are from the bachelor party. That was never said. Why hadn’t the bachelor party been considered? It was Pfizer if you had a great bachelor party and then your body started swelling.”
If you didn’t get the humor, Pfizer also makes Viagra.
The playful conversation between the two can be heard below.
