While on the “The Kelly Clarkson Show” recently, Robin Thicke recalled a bank robbery he witnessed that ended up inspiring his “Shooter” collaboration with Lil Wayne.
Robin tells Kelly Clarkson that when he was 18-years-old, he was inside a bank when some guys with masks and guns entered and robbed the place. He wrote a song about this experience titled “Oh Shooter” for his debut studio album, A Beautiful World.
Years later, Wayne put his own spin on the “Shooter” track and added it to his Tha Carter II album, which Thicke says he ended up getting a Grammy Award for it. However, I think he is getting mistaken with Tha Carter III album. Check it out below!
