After visits from Lady Gaga and Aloe Blacc, Jimmy Kimmel capped off his week at SXSW with an appearance from Lil Wayne. The Young Money rapper, who was feeling right at home in Austin, sat down for an interview on Friday’s show, where he spoke about being shot at by a fan and the one time he shot himself.
“I’ve been shot at by a female fan,” revealed Weezy. “It was after a show and she was just a very persistent fan. We didn’t know what she actually wanted.”
Once the gunshots went off, the bus driver started swerving. “We weren’t paying them no mind. We was all hype, and we was dancin’,” said Wayne. “We were more upset at him ’cause we was like, ‘You gon’ kill us.’”
When he was 14, he also shot himself on accident while watching the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Big Poppa” music video in the mirror. “My ass was tryin’ to be hard, lookin’ in the mirror, trippin’ and it went off,” he said.
He woke up to the police at his door. “I gathered myself and I slid on my own blood ’cause we had wooden floors, thank God,” said Wayne. “I used the floor and I slid on my blood and I kicked the door and they heard me kick the door and they opened the door.”
During his time at SXSW, he’s been checking out some shows, but he’s not scouting for any new talent. “Actually I just had a show and a female asked to rap for me,” said Wayne.
