Louisiana rapper Lil Wayne is always one to pay it forward. New reports reveal just how far he went to try to bless up the person who saved his life.
Lil Wayne Tried To Financially Help Ex-Cop Who Saved His Life
Ex-cop Robert Hoobler, who Tunechi credits with saving his life after his childhood suicide attempt, says he finally met the rap star again back in 2019. Wayne reportedly tried to help him out financially, and there has been talk about “Uncle Bob” joining his team in an administrative role.
Lil Wayne’s never forgotten “Uncle Bob” — the former New Orleans police officer who saved his life when he attempted suicide at age 12 — and he’s told him he’s got his back for life if he ever needs anything. “Uncle Bob,” whose real name is Robert Hoobler, tells TMZ … he saw Lil Wayne in 2019 when the rapper was in NOLA for a radio show, and that’s when Wayne offered to provide Bob with financial support if he ever needed it, telling Bob all he has to do is say the word.

Notorious B.I.G. Actually Helped Lil Wayne Stay Alive
The late Notorious B.I.G. actually played a vital role in Lil Wayne reconsidering taking his own life in the 90’s – the event in which “Uncle Bob” entered his life and ultimately saved it. The hip-hop star has stepped up to dish on contemplating suicide and Biggie Smalls being connected to his life-changing decision.
In a new “Uncomfortable Conversations” series with entertainment personality Emmanuel Acho, Weezy F. Baby doesn’t hold back on discussing mental health and his past attempted suicide moment. Wayne admits at the age of 12, he had his mom’s gun to his chest to take his life moments before B.I.G.’s “One More Chance” music video came on the TV.
“And Biggie was already gone or something. So I was looking, I was like, ‘You know what?’ Start thinking I had to get myself mad and noticed that I didn’t have to. that’s what scared me. How I knew I had a mental health problem was when I pulled the trigger.”
Despite still pulling the trigger, Wayne said he went through shock but didn’t feel any pain. A call he made to the police ahead of his attempt had law enforcement to come the rescue and ultimately get him rushed to a hospital.
Lil Wayne Reflects On Donald Trump Meeting
Recently, the hip-hop star spoke about the controversial meeting he had with former United States President Donald Trump.
Weezy says progress was always possible and dished out no regret about linking up with Trump prior to the 2020 presidential election. He kept it short and to the point but surely gave an answer with hope.
“Progress is always possible”
Lil Tunechi also spoke about the recent controversy behind Charlotte native DaBaby and his Rolling Loud comments. He spoke on the power of social media when talking about the public response Baby got.
“You know how it does. The spotlight on artists and celebrities is absolutely crazy. You don’t even have to be a celebrity. Even normal people can feel like they’re wrong because their 200 followers said something. But that’s the power of social media today.”
Lil Wayne Reacts To TC3 Success
