Rap artist Lil Wayne is paying tribute to New Orleans police officer Robert Hoobler, better known as “Uncle Bob,” who died recently.
Even as anti-police sentiment grows nationwide, Lil Wayne has remained steadfast that the men in blue deserve nothing but respect. The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., shared a heartfelt tribute on his Instagram account this week.
“Everything happens for a reason. I was dying when I met u at this very spot. U refused to let me die. Everything that doesn’t happen, doesn’t happen for a reason. That reason being you and faith. RIP uncle Bob. Aunt Kathie been waiting for u. I’ll love & miss u both and live for us all,” he captioned a photo of Hoobler.
