Gunplay Details Cocaine Usage, Being Labeled Crackhead

Gunplay says he's now "staying out of trouble," speaks on his new fanbase.

Following various run-ins with the law, Maybach Music Group artist Gunplay says he’s now “staying out of trouble.” The Floridian emcee recently spoke with Mikey T The Movie Star about his lifestyle change and almost having his freedom taken away.

“Just staying out the way, man. Just staying out of trouble,” Gunplay said. “Out the way. Staying home. Only moving when money calls. You know what I’m saying? Shows, et cetera. But other than that, dog, I’m just humble, man. When you get your freedom almost took from you it kinda does something to ya. And it’s a new charge and shit. So, I’m really, really, really chilling now.”

In addition to adopting a less hectic lifestyle, Gunplay says that he’s also come across a new fanbase. The rapper says his new fanbase is less familiar with the “selling crack,” “snorting coke” Gunplay and are more familiar with his wild side.

Gunplay also spoke on the tracks fans can expect on his upcoming album, Living Legend. Among the records he says will be featured on the album are one EDM track and another track, which features guest verses from Lil Wayne and Rick Ross.

“I have a new fanbase,” he said. “So, I’m not trying to cater to them, but give em something that they’ll fuck with. You know what I’m saying? Cause my new fanbase—They know me for selling crack and snorting coke and busting guns and shit. You know? The hood know me for that. But my new fanbase, they wanna hear the crazy Gunplay, the wild Gunplay. They wanna hear that. So, I gave em a record called ‘Crazy’ featuring Young Dro. And of course for the stoners my nigga Wayne. Ross on there, ‘Kush.’ Got an EDM record on my album. Kinda EDM-ish. That’s gonna really be big. Shot the video with J.R. Saint. Shot that out there in the Mojave Desert…Just something different. I be bored with music and shit.”

Lastly, Gunplay addressed his past drug use and recalled being labeled “a crackhead” at the start of his music career.

“Can't no nigga snort as much cocaine as me neither, muthafucka," the rapper said. "They tried to ruin a nigga career early in the game. ‘You a crackhead mothafucka.’ But shit, man. I’m against all odds. Me against the world."

Living Legend is currently slated for release later this year.

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!

    "You can just look at him and tell he has a poor credit rating" Obviously that's what he wants people to think. This way he doesn't blow money on yes men, and has plenty left to purchase Columbian blow.

    Since when does a crackhead care how they are labeled? Dude is a coke junkie though. He was so proud to binge on a youtube video. These lean rappers are no better. Heroine junkies basically. Rap and hip hop has more to do with drugs these days than anything uplifting or relevant. How is molly no being discussed when that was out for over 10 years? These junkie rappers are getting paid by their industry handlers to pollute and dumb down their audience with drug references and a bunch of nothing.

    how you gon sell drugs..and then abuse them?.. Being a junkie is cool now? cmon now. Back in the day kids made fun of crackhead fiends. theres people who make bossed up rap and there are people that make rap for followers.

    there's something beautiful about rapping about how you're struggle to get by by selling drugs to fiends and being remorseful. there is nothing to be celebrated when you are junkie and you are parading it like its cool to kids. there are plenty song about drug abuse but rap music is the only genre that promotes drug use these days

    Why don't rappers who promote the use of "Lean" or "Molly" get the same criticism as Gunplay?

      Gunplay on popping Molly "My mind is clear. I'm thinking way clearer and I'm not thinking on impulse much. I talk about it and acknowledge it [his cocaine addiction]. To this day, that's [cocaine] my favorite drug; my drug of choice [cocaine]. Now, I just pop a Molly, fuck it. That shit gets you high three, four hours and it stops. I'm back to reality."

      that lean is pretty bad stuff, lil wayne caught a lot of flack for being a junkie addicted to lean. same for soulja boy and gucci mane. as far as the molly i never heard of a molly addict.

    who would have ever thought that snorting cocaine on video when your boss claims to be drug kingpin would ever give the impression that you're a crackhead junkie.

    Either he's a walking contradiction or the person who wrote this article sucks pretty bad. As it says in one part: "The rapper says his new fanbase is less familiar with the selling crack, snorting coke Gunplay" and then a couple of lines later reads: "Cause my new fanbaseThey know me for selling crack and snorting coke." Terrible article.

      New fanbase? LOL does he even have an old fanbase? In the Breakfast Club interview he said he is sober then he proceeded to pour him self a cup of alcohol at like 8 AM.

    No one tried to ruin your career dog, you did that to yourself when you started snorting bumps on video and talking mad shit without being able to back any of it up.
  • TRUTH IS here

      Gunplay is not rich. He's living off a Def Jam advance that he's going to have to pay back out of his own pocket when he album flops (if it ever gets a release date). You can just look at him and tell he has a poor credit rating.

      He came in the game being co-signed by the biggest fraud we've seen thus far, a lying ass snitchin law enforcement rat nigga. Pardon me if I can't take this fool seriously. Especially after seeing him get knocked out 3 times and robbed once.

      No one even mentioned 50 Cent... fuck is you talkin about. In his new Breakfast Club interview he casually talks about getting knocked out again like its happens all the time. This nigga is a fiend and a loser whether G-Unit beat and robbed him or not. He take's L's like that every month.

    A lot of my favorite artists struggled with addiction, Cobain, Hendrix, Gaye, DMX, so I hope Gunplay can conquer his addictions and make some good music for us.

    people aren't ready to make coke sniffing on camera a socially acceptable activity yet Gunplay. too many drug awareness classes for that so until then you're a drug addict. and the same thing goes to you lean sipping and weed abusing drug addicts who think you're cool till your body rots from the inside out

    I think everyone talks / post comments based on false perspective , but not real what is in your face facts .. and Fact is Gunplay is artistic .. he has his own style and he comes with witty shit and a different layered flow when he spits .. exaple ( cartoons & cereal ) ... has anyone seen his short video "guillatine swords "? .. oh i forgot .. your stuck on the fact 50 cent crew jumped him and he did fly around .. but didnt break or quit .. he was in the end swinging on someone from 50 crew .. he didnt run he got fucking Jumped ..of course you lose the fight when you jumped ???!! ... not one of yall would of stood in the paint like he did witha whole crew attacking you .. he has style and if you get your head out your ass and actually listen to his music .. not guess you know.. listen .. because all you fucks did is say.. "oh Gunplay . he sucks " you robably judge Ross off his old job a "CO" .. but not his actual MUSIC which is Nice .. fucking dumb ass commentors

      "exaple ( cartoons & cereal )" this is the only song anyone ever mentions with this guy and it's not even his. sadly he will never top that. he was probably high on crack too.

      that nigga went flying through the air into the steel fence. only reason he got up and started swinging was because everyone else got maced and ran off from the cops. he gets no point for that. gunplay jumped dj vlad with officer rickys bodyguards for exposing his cop buddy so he gets no sympathy.

    Rock stars are allowed to use narcotics but its considered taboo for rappers to do so unless of course its Wu Tang, DMX or a rapper that you like. Charlie Sheen does coke and hes considered a party animal but Gunplay does coke and hes a crackhead....

      Rock stars didn't glamorize selling drugs to fiends and not getting high off their own supply.

      rappers literally make drug promoting music. its really awful that they can make that and kids listen to it. there are so many kids throwing their life away due to weed, lean, and pill abuse

      He wont sell 80k in 5 years. Tony Yayo sold over 800k. Say what you want about 50 Cent but he put his niggas on while he was at his peak. Ross ain't put Gunplay in the game yet but he stays signing bums like Fat Trel and Tracy T.

    my homies in FL told me this guy was a huge loser in high school. it all makes so much sense. he linked up with ross and they began to live out a gangster fantasy where they weren't complete losers/cops/fatties/addicts.

    junkie, junkie, junkie....."Junkies have no place in the music business".... but a true music lover knows that many of the most beautiful songs ever recorded (and you probably love some to death) were done by.......a junkie remember Eminem? oh, there's a difference, there IS room for a junkie, so long as they fit your Moral Orel code, ya bunch of hypocrites Gunplay is wack-juice, but the new crop of the target demographic ain't gonna remember the 1st KO by the car, they'll remember the songs from last year and ride the wave because he has MMG on his side and the press says MMG is that group
