Ex-Police Officer Robert Hoobler Who Saved Lil Wayne Life Dies At 65

The ex-New Orleans police officer who saved Lil Wayne‘s life when he attempted suicide and shot himself at 12-years-old, Robert Hoobler, has passed away at the age of 65.

According to his friends, Robert was found dead on Friday (July 22nd) inside his Old Jefferson home. He had been suffering for many years with health issues, due to a bad car crash that led to him having both of his legs amputated.

It’s possible Tunechi will be paying for the funeral costs as when Tune had previously heard rumors of Hoobler passing away (listen to “London Roads“), he was ready to pay for the funeral costs then. R.I.P. to Robert Hoobler aka Uncle Bob!


LeBron James Reunites Hot Boys At “Beats x NOLA” Event In New Orleans, Lil Wayne Wasn’t Feeling The Crowd At First [Videos]

LeBron James Reunites Hot Boys At BeatsxNOLA Event In New Orleans, Lil Wayne Wasnt Feeling The Crowd At First

On February 18th, Lil Wayne attended the “Beats x NOLA” event during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana that was hosted by Beats By Dre and LeBron James.

While at the party, Weezy performed live with 2 Chainz, Fat Joe and DJ Khaled. He also reunited with Juvenile, Turk and Mannie Fresh on stage to perform songs like “Bling Bling” and “We On Fire“. LeBron even got on the mic to say a few words:

“I don’t know if these people fully appreciate what’s going on tonight. We got motherfuckin’ Hot Boys in this motherfucker right now. I gotta make sure, because this is my party, I gotta make sure that people fully understand what’s going on tonight. We got Tunechi, Juvie, Mannie, Turk in here tonight in their backyard in New Orleans. I grew up on these boys right here, I grew up on these boys right here. I had to let y’all know that everything that goes on tonight, you better appreciate the shit, because it may not happen again.”

However, it wasn’t all good at the start of the show as Tunechi said he wasn’t feeling how dead the crowd was and for his manager to not book him for anything else like this in the future:

“I don’t know what kind of event they done invited me to, but this look like some kind of ball or something cause y’all ain’t moving. Y’all act like y’all got on nice dresses or something, nice shoes. I am the wrong motherfucker to hire for this type of situation, I don’t know what they done. I need to talk to my motherfuckin’ manager cause I don’t know what’s going on, they done put me in a R&B situation and I am a real Blood. Anyway ladies and gentlemen, my name is Tunechi, you in my city, I made this motherfucker.”
