NEW HAVEN, INDIANA — A small-time rapper wanted to do something cool for his latest music video, so she shot himself in the face, on camera.
On July 21, Kasper Knight, who also goes by the name “Tha Phantom,” grabbed a .9 mm handgun, and shot himself through his right cheek. He then published the video to Facebook a day later with a message saying he originally wanted a cameraman to film it but no one was willing. He also said compared to his other times getting shot, the pain was only a 4/10.
In the video, after getting shot he tells his friend in the car that he thinks he swallowed the bullet. He also said “Whatever, fuck it. If I die, fuck it.” Moments later, as blood was gushing out of his face, he began laughing about something he saw out of the car window.
Shortly afterward, he posted a follow-up video to show a close-up of the bullet-wound, which had been tended to by doctors.
