An aspiring rapper shoots himself in the face in a bid to launch his music career in this shocking video.

Wannabe hip hop artist Kasper Knight posted the horrifying footage on Facebook , seemingly in the hope the clip would go viral .

 It shows the foolhardy filmmaker press a gun against his cheek and pull the trigger without hesitation, blowing a hole into the side of his face.

Holding his cheek, Knight looks at himself in the camera as blood pours out of his mouth.

He says: “I don’t give a f*** about nothing anymore.”Posting the video on Facebook, Knight explained that he originally wanted to perform the stunt for a music video, but no cameraman would film it.

He wrote: “So I did it myself since I felt like taking a bullet to the face.“Anyway, this was really nothing. I’ve been shot a couple of time 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.”

He then tells anyone worried about him shooting himself in the face to “deal with it”.“I don’t give a f*** whether you want me to live or not unless you are paying me MONEY. Your care for my life will never supersede my disregard for it.”

He ends by saying he will take questions on his books, music and art “before I am anything important.”

The clip has so far been viewed more than 500,000 times – but most of those who watched it blasted Knight for his stupidity.

One viewer wrote: “Why the hell would you WANT to shoot yourself in the damn face?!” while another said: “Why do idiots like this exist on the Internet?”
