Gunplay's Armed Robbery Case Dismissed

Gunplay is off the hook in a case of armed robbery despite video evidence of the altercation.

Rapper Gunplay is off the hook in an armed robbery case that was caught on camera.

According to TMZ, the Def Jam signee has been exonerated despite the fact that there is surveillance video that shows him robbing his accountant. The case was dismissed because the victim refused to cooperate, as authorities tried to subpoena him but were unable to track him down.

"Video alone is not enough to convict an individual of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt," explained the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office. "Although the armed robbery is captured on the victim's surveillance system, the victim, Turron Woodside, is uncooperative of the prosecution of this defendant Richard Morales [Gunplay]."

 

Gunplay spoke on the outcome of the case, stating that he plans to pick up where he left off. "Today I am grateful and blessed that the case was dismissed," he said. "I plan on picking up where I left off with my music and making hits with my upcoming debut album ... The first thing I am going to do today is smoke a joint, relax, play video games, and just be with my loved ones."

Gunplay, who was charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault in the incident, turned himself over to authorities last October. He was placed under house arrest and could have faced life in prison if convicted on both counts.

He is currently gearing up for the release of his Def Jam debut Medellin, which will feature guest appearances from Pharrell Williams and Big Sean. He previously told HipHopDX he will appear on Lil Wayne's I Am Not a Human Being II.

    "50 has more haters than young buck has fans" I'd rather have a few thousand people like me than millions who hated me.

    "meek is not going to have a long career and he too will be broke and not touring. hes not jay-z or eminem" Is that crystal ball your using cracked? He can last as long as somebody funds him. That's Cass's problem. Nobody believes in the so called hustla anymore, so the calls have stopped. That's sad.

    "is that why young buck sold 30 million records? oh wait he didnt" It's hard to sell records when your former control freak of a boss won't let you out of an old contract.

    damn this nigga snitchin

      What?! Just because a nigga got off the case doesnt mean he snitch. In the given situation who could he snitch on? Himself? Dumb fuck. The victim wasnt co operative. The nigga was probably stealing money from his ass anyway since he claimed that was his accountant, why would he cooperate.

    "cass already did them world tours and major label deals" You aren't supposed to go backwards in your career, dumb fuck. People only look to see where you are now. Meek is doing exactly what a new artist should be doing. He's touring and making money. Did the Raid freestyle do anything to make Cass relevant again? All that jealous rage and Meek just shrugged it off. That's how winners are made.

      5 years from now meek is going to be in cassidy's position. meek is not going to have a long career and he too will be broke and not touring. hes not jay-z or eminem. he clearly didnt shrug it off since he had to diss him again a month later in a weak ass freestyle that he messed up a bunch of times then complained about his headphone cord bein loose.

    "he wrote that song 2 years ago and that line is true" I don't care when he wrote it. It was recently on Itunes. Point is 50 should be the bigger man and just let shit be. More people like Buck anyway. That's what bothers Curtis the most.

    "you think he should take care of young buck after he paid that niggas taxes and he still dissed him" 50 told Young Buck to suck his dick in a recent song. The dude's penniless and in prison. Why the fuck would you still go at somebody when you know they can't respond back? That's some coward shit right there.

    "but 50 still made him rich" Buck had a little something to do with that success. And just because 50 gave him 10 million, if you knew your friend had a drug problem, could you in good faith still give him money knowing he would still fall flat on his ass?

    "meek got ethered by cassidy" Says who, you? Fortunately, you don't run jack shit within the industry. Meek is about to go on tour. Where's Cass? Oh that's right. He's hanging out with unsigned battle rappers in the underground cause his bitch ass can't land a major recording deal. Now that's being ethered.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!!! Cass ethered Meek. Meek's disses were weak. This is about lyrical skill, not other bullshit, so stop being a Meek groupie, bitch ass quote-man.

    "but 50 got an 8 year old kid wearing your MMG chain in a music video" Wow. A grown man exploiting a child just to prove a point. Wouldn't be the first time for has been Fif. He paraded his son around in a bulletproof vest for cheap publicity.

      cheap publicity? when 50 did that shit he was the most popular and hottest rapper in the world. he didnt need to do anything for cheap publicity.

    "not a good look for mmg" As opposed to G Unit whose the industry joke now. Banks only does free mixtapes. 50 can't get an album out. Their best rapper Buck had to sell his boxers at an auction. MMG may not be untouchable, but at least they're relevant.

      1. "Rick Ross looks after his friends. Curtis could learn a thing or two about that concept." 2. "and he has taken care of banks and yayo his true friends from the start you think he should take care of young buck after he paid that niggas taxes and he still dissed him? fuck outta here" 3. "He controlled them like puppets. If that's what you consider friendship then Dr. Phil should have a field day with you." 4. "he made them rich and they never have to work again for the rest of their lives" 5. "Tell that to Young Buck" IF YOU KNEW HOW TO REPLY TO THE FUCKING COMMENTS MAYBE YOU WOULDNT LOOK LIKE A FUCKING MORON ALL THE TIME

    Who cares about a chain being snatched??? I can't believe that n*ggas make the same argument all the time. Gunplay always been dope, ..once has featured on Deeper than Rap, for the most part all his raps go hard. Triple C album was hard. N*ggas need to open they ears!
