American popular rapper, Dwayne Carter Jr, also known as Lil Wayne, has revealed how he attempted suicide at the age of 12.

He made this known while talking about mental health with Emmanuel Acho on Sunday’s episode of ‘Uncomfortable Conversations.’

Wayne said he struggled for two years of his adolescence until his mother learned he had been skipping school.

He said he attempted to take his own life at just 12 years old because he thought his mum would rebuke him from rapping.

Wayne said he called the police then went into his mother’s bedroom to get her gun.

He initially held the gun to his head but got scared and instead decided to shoot himself in the chest, aiming for his heart.

“I didn’t feel a thing,” he recalled.

The rapper’s attempt at killing himself changed his family’s perception of his musical aspirations.
