According to Wayne, in an interview with Billboard published on Thursday, he found a gun in his mom's home and put a bullet in his own chest, "just missing (his) heart".

'In the past, he has called this an accident. The verse in question, reportedly comes from a song which samples British singer Sampha's piano-laden ballad "Indecision", off of his 2013 EP Duel.

After the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain in the middle of the summer, Wayne made a decision to add more lyrics to the track and put it at the end of the album as the outro.

"He just told me one day that he was ready to address it now", Mack Maine, president of Young Money Entertainment and Wayne's longtime friend, tells Billboard. But in a new verse on Weezy's upcoming Tha Carter V album, he reveals that the self-inflicted wound was in fact a suicide attempt.

Tha Carter V has experienced many delays due to legal battles and disputes with Cash Money Records, but is set to be finally released on 21 September after Wayne was released from his contract in June.

The rapper said, "I want to talk about this because I know a lot of people out there might be going through that". Both parties settled their lawsuit for an undisclosed amount earlier this year. Young Money now belongs exclusively to Wayne, and will continue to be distributed by Republic Records. "There's no hard feelings or animosity", says Ron Sweeney, Wayne's attorney and manager. "Not even just with him, but my relationships with a lot of people have become different, just because of how different I work now", he shares. "It's something where you have to cut some things off".
