Bronx, New York emcee Cory Gunz is the latest Young Money emcee to get MTV’s docu-series treatment. The leading music network has previously aired “day-in-the-life” material on Drake and Nicki Minaj, before announcing this morning that they have an April 28 premiere planned for Cory Gunz.
Son of A Gun takes its name from the fact that Cory Gunz is son of 1990s emcee Pete Gunz, who along with Lord Tariq, scored a hit in 1998’s “Deja Vu (Uptown Baby)” for Columbia Records. The series will be produced by a Rap peer, in Nick Cannon, who called Cory’s story “inspiring, one that boldly paints the many trials and tribulations he’s had to endure in pursuit of his dreams.”
The six-part series, airing at 11pm EST, will show Gunz hunger and rise, including a feature on Lil Wayne’s present hit “6’7” .
