    “Fireman” Weezy humbly pays tribute to officer who “refused to let him die”. “Everything happens for a reason. I was overwhelmed when I encountered you in this exact place. You saved me from despair. Things that do not occur, do so with purpose. That reason being you and faith. RIP uncle Bob. Aunt Kathie been waiting for you.

    To recap, Weezy would make his attempt at suicide at the age of 12 after finding a gun in his childhood home. Lil Wayne shot himself in the chest then called in 911. An off-duty officer would show up due to the stall of sending ambulances. “Uncle Bob” drove Wayne in his own vehicle to the hospital where the future rapper would ultimately survive, according to XXL.

    Wayne later bumped into Hoobler at a concert, offering him financial help. Robert would decline the offer; however, the two spoke about administrative endeavors for Hoobler.
