Um I dont think he shot his self
He shot himself when he was 12.
'When Lil Wayne was 12, he shot himself.
By all accounts, it was an accident. He was playing with his stepfather's Taurus .44 when it went off, slamming a slug straight into his chest. The bullet missed his heart by two inches and sailed through his body, but it left the boy bleeding, barely breathing. He spent the next two weeks hooked to a hospital respirator.
If you'd survived a bullet to the chest, you'd probably call it a miracle—a sign, maybe, that God had something special planned for you. That it wasn't your time.'
