Lil Wayne got insightful about his struggles over the years with mental health in a new interview.
After that, Wayne reflected on a time when he was 12 years old. His mother had found out he was lying about school and he knew he was about to get punished. Before his mother could get home, he got her gun and held it to his chest, and pulled the trigger. While the gun wasn’t loaded, Wayne says he fainted from shock.
The new conversation with Acho isn’t the first time that Wayne has discussed his mental health in public. In 2016, on Solange’s song, “Mad,” he spoke about suicide. “When I attempted suicide, I didn’t die,” he said on the track.
