Rapper Lil Wayne Mourns Death Of Police Officer Who Once Saved His Life.

Lil Wayne has paid tribute to the New Orleans cop who saved his life when he was 12 years old.

According to Nola.com, Robert Hoobler was discovered dead in his home on Friday. The 65-year-old had suffered from health issues following a car accident, as well as diabetes, which led doctors to amputate both of his legs.

Wayne has frequently stated that Hoobler saved his life. On November 11, 1994, a young Dwayne Carter shot himself in the chest in his mother’s Hollygrove apartment while holding a 9 mm pistol.

Even though he was not on duty, Hoobler heard the police radio report and drove to the scene with five other officers. While the other cops searched the house, they left Wayne to die on the floor, but Bob rushed him to the hospital.

Wayne paid tribute to the man he called “Uncle Bob” on Sunday, posting a photo of the late officer outside his old house. “Everything occurs for a reason.” I was dying when I met you at this exact location.

“You would not let me die,” he wrote. “Everything that does not happen happens for a reason.” That reason is you and your faith. Uncle Bob, rest in peace. Aunt Kathie has been expecting you. I’ll love and miss you both and live for all of us.”

“Those Black cops jumped over me and ran through the crib, saying we found the gun, we found this, we found that,” Wayne continued. He stated, “I discovered this baby on the floor, and I need to get to a hospital.”

He didn’t wait for an ambulance; instead, he drove himself. He made someone drive it, and he made certain that I survived. That’s Uncle Bob, and that’s his story.”

Wayne rapped about it in his 2015 song “London Roads.” He thought Bob had died at the time, but he was alive and well, and they reconnected. He even offered him financial assistance.

“He said, ‘I don’t want anything.'” In 2021, Wayne told Emmanuel Acho, “I just want to say, ‘I’m happy to say that I saved a life that mattered.”
