While living in New Orleans with his mother at age 12, Wayne shot himself in the chest, with the bullet just missing his heart.

You won't be surprised to learn that the version of Tha Carter V that's coming out in 2018 is not the same album that was to be released in 2014 - in fact, the tracklist is reportedly "still in flux" - but the final product will not be entirely different from the original 2014 LP. He has called the incident an accident in the past, but on a new song off C5, he admits this was a suicide attempt.

The track, which samples Sampha's 2013 song "Indecision", serves as the album's outro. It was part of the original Carter V tracklist, but he recently added a new verse addressing the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain.

Melnyk pledges to rebuild Senators
Two players, three players in the dressing room are not gonna do it". "We're going to give everything we've got". It's an interview, sort of, between Senators defenceman Mark Borowiecki and the team's owner, Eugene Melnyk.

Speaking on why Wayne chose to reveal his suicide attempt now, the NOLA native's long time friend and Young Money label president Mack Maine explained to the publication that Wayne told him he was just ready to address the incident.

The rapper said, "I want to talk about this because I know a lot of people out there might be going through that".

Elsewhere in the interview, Wayne addresses his legal battle with Birdman. But Wayne's initial 51-49 joint venture is now exclusively under his control after a June 7th ruling saw both sides settle for an undisclosed amount. It's important to note, both sides retained the stakes in the deals made prior to the settlement. According to Wayne's attorney and manager Ron Sweeney, "There's no hard feelings or animosity". And if you're wondering about Wayne's relationship with Birdman, supposedly they're back to talking every day, mostly about the Boston Red Sox. "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.
