Retired Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill shared this detail with TMZ on Saturday as he was entering the Gaylord National Resort in Maryland. After asking about the perks that come with the American hero status—like never having to buy drinks—a cameraman asked O’Neill if he had played any songs on the night of bin Laden’s killing.
“On the night of it? Yeah, I actually listened to ‘Red Nation’ by The Game [featuring Lil Wayne],” he said before confirming he was a big fan. “He’s got some good stuff going on.”
O’Neill went on to say he had never met The Game, but, of course, would jump at the opportunity.

After conducting an anonymous interview with Esquire in 2013, O’Neill had publicly revealed his identity as bin Laden’s killer shortly before he appeared on a Fox News special titled The Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden. His claims about single-handedly killing the al-Qaeda resulted in widespread criticism, as he was accused of breaking the Special Ops code of silence.
O’Neill also made headlines earlier this month after he blasted Donald Trump’s reported request for a military parade.
A military parade is third world bullshit. We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation.— Robert J. O'Neill (@mchooyah) February 8, 2018
