American rap legend Lil Wayne shared his story about how he attempted to commit suicide during an interview with Emmanuel Acho. “When I was 12 years old, the school year was ending. So what the school was doing was they were giving us half days on a Thursday and a Friday. So I stayed out the rest of the whole day. My mum found out and so when I got home, I got a phone call from my aunt who started complaining. I hunged up the phone, thoughts everywhere. So I picked up the phone and called the police. I went straight to my mum’s bedroom, grabbed the gun, looked in the mirror, pointed it at my head, and got scared. I pulled the trigger into my chest and I didn’t feel any pain” he said.
Lil Wayne attempted to commit suicide because he thought his mum wouldn’t allow him to pursue his musical career.
