Doing ‘it’ for fame and fortune
In make-or-break move, struggling Indiana rapper, Kasper knight, aka, ‘Kasper Tha Phantom’, shoots himself in a video because he ‘felt like taking a bullet to the face’
Unable to find a music video director willing to film him shooting himself in the face, Knight takes matters into his own hands, films the scene on his own and uploads to Facebook
Kasper Knight, who calls himself “Kasper tha Phantom,” shot himself after he “felt like taking a bullet to the face,” he said in a bizarre explanation on the video.
In the clip posted on his Facebook page on Friday, Knight holds a revolver to his cheek and pulls the trigger, reeling in pain from the bullet piercing his mouth.
In the description on the video, Knight said he originally wanted to shoot himself in the face for a music video, but couldn’t find a person who would be willing to record it.
Knight who said he has been that he has been shot several times before, added that the shot he took to the face “was really nothing” and a “4 out of 10 on the pain scale.”
He spits out blood and holds his hand over the bullet wound, before laughing and rubbing a crimson mask over his face.
“Anyway, this was really nothing,” Kasper Knight wrote in a message on Facebook. “I’ve been shot a couple times before and this was like a 4 out of 10 on the pain scale after the initial impact. I look slightly disorientated after the blast. That’s because my ears were ringing/ in pain. It was hard to focus on sound and although I assumed that i swallowed the bullet/ I wasn’t quite sure. The last time that a bullet ricocheted through me/ it destroyed an organ and part of another.”
“I don’t give a f–k about nothing anymore,” he said in the clip. “I swallowed the bullet… s–t.”
He spoke out against his friends and family who complained about the video, demanding they mind their own business.
“Your care for my life will never supersede my disregard for it,” he wrote in the post. “I knew it was possible that the bullet might bounce back and puncture my throat, but it didn’t matter.”
A day after the bumbling bullet blast, Knight uploaded a second video, calling out critics who claimed the clip was a fake.
In the second video, Knight shows off the stitched wound, with a nauseating hole inside his cheek.
“Nasty though, ain’t it?” he said.
In a bizarre description on one of Knight’s rap videos, the uploader writes: “He seeks billionaire status, a trans-human bionic body and complete world domination.”
At one point in his written description, Knight appears to ponder what it would be like to also shoot himself in the arm.
“I should’ve used a different gun,” he wrote. “My friend discouraged me from using the .9mm because he said it was armor piercing. Armor piercing: I wonder what that’d look like going through my arms/ do you?”
In another message on Facebook, Knight accused WorldStar of discrimination for not uploading the video of “a white skinned half African motherfucker with mitary and law enforcement experience.”
“1.7 million views on my own,” Knight wrote. “Fuck world star. They pussied out. World Star takes every opportunity to post the most vile shit from dark skinned African Americans but let a white skinned half African motherfucker with mitary and law enforcement experience do something and they won’t post.”
According to the police the video was under investigation.
