Gunplay had an up-and-down year in 2012, which included a solo deal with Def Jam Records, as well as an arrest for armed robbery.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Gunplay spoke confidently about his upcoming trial for the robbery on February 25. “Not guilty,” he said, referring to the incident, of which a video appeared to show him the rapper robbing a man. “The problem that we had was between me and him but that’s what happens sometimes. We’re just waiting for the last trial date so we can get [the case] kicked out.”
The Maybach Music Group artist also spoke about drug use – a habit he says he’s kicked. “It’s either that or your freedom,” said the rapper, who was under house arrest until Thursday (January 17). “You put that into perspective and weed ain’t that serious. A molly ain’t that serious. If they catch it in your system and you go back to jail, you’re looking crazy.”
Finally, Gunplay spoke about his upcoming solo album, Medellin. “I don’t want too many features on my album,” he said. “I want them to feel me, not me and 80 other rappers that you hear every day on the radio.”
