Gunplay Says He's Ready To Move Forward With Def Jam, Talks Past Drug Use

Maybach Music rapper Gunplay speaks on his solo deal with Def Jam, touches on his use of cocaine.

Now that the news of Miami rapper Gunplay’s deal with Def Jam has had some time to settle, the rapper is finally sharing the details of his solo deal and how it came to fruition.

During his interview with XXL Magazine, Gunplay spoke on the negotiation process for the deal which he says took at least a month and while he didn’t share the specifics he says he was also approached by several other interested labels.

“You know we was negotiating about a month or two, you know what I’m saying, just to get everything right. And just to get everything fair to where everybody could leave the table happy,” Gunplay explained. “Everything worked out just fine; we’re ready to move forward so it’s dry now so we’re just ready to make the best music possible. It was a few labels that was interested, but you know I just like to—I don’t like moving around, I’m not a clique hopper, you know what I’m saying? I like to keep it in house. So that was the move I made and I just wanted to keep it in house.”

On a more serious note the rapper also shared the details of his past drug use and how his mother helped him quit cocaine thanks to her medical expertise.

“It got pretty bad. It got bad. I can’t let it get to the point where I steal and shit…I’m back to reality,” said Gunplay. “I’m back to life. That shit gives you a fucked-up attitude. It makes you snap on people you love. It’s not you, it’s the chemical imbalance that happens in your brain from snorting up that shit. You don’t even realize it. You think it’s the world against you. ‘Nah nigga, your brain’s about to melt.’ My mama’s a nurse. She tells me about that shit. She knew I got high and she would just pray that I stopped. My mind is clear. I’m thinking way clearer and I’m not thinking on impulse much. I talk about it and acknowledge it.”

    The first post Anonomys says "In the 90's a lot of dealers would try crack out to see what the big deal was and got hooked. Thats was the golden era of selling crack..." Dude your state/city/neighborhood got crack real late!

      Im give you another history lesson. When the crack game started dying off in Cali and New York it was bubbling in the south and thats when new york and cali niggaz started sending that work down south when money started drying up and it was to many niggaz to compete with. I mean you must be a youngster because if you a oldhead you would know this.

      Im not saying it didnt get here in the late 80's but new york and Cali was first to that shit thats fact. In the South that shit didnt really start hitting hard until the late 80's to the early 90's Im talking about 90-94. It was a lot of guys getting that money and getting hooked at the same time. Whats wrong with that statement. It was jumping from 90-94 in the crack game. Now gangbangin we was on that shit in 85 Crip Blood Folk Vice Lord. Just like New York was late to the Cripping and Blood shit. Like yall started banging in the 90's thats crazy.

      I had a lot of homies that would snort that shit and move work. They would say I have to test the product. In the 90's a lot of dealers would try crack out to see what the big deal was and got hooked. Thats was the golden era of selling crack when you could have it in your hand the police wouldnt know what it was. A lot of crackheads and heroin addicts use to sell that shit they just got to curious. Shit happens everyday in the hood like seen 17 year old crackheadsd. They use to try to sell and got hooked. Everyday shit.
