Lil Wayne is opening up about mental health and his past suicide attempt in hopes he can help someone else struggling with the same issues.

Recently, the rapper appeared on Uncomfortable Conversations with Emmanuel Acho sharing at the age of 10 he began to struggle with mental health, which led to a suicide attempt at 12-years-old.

He explained that the scar on his chest was not from playing with a gun, which he said earlier in his career, but from an actual suicide attempt.

He shot himself, missing his heart by inches.

Although he still struggles with anxiety and mental health issues, he has never had suicidal thoughts since that day.

If you or someone you know are experiencing suicidal thoughts, call 911, or call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or text HOME to the Crisis Text Line at 741741.
