Gunplay Discusses Being On A Major Label & Advice From Rick Ross

Gunplay explains his viewpoint as a major label artist.

Gunplay has apparently been doing a lot of learning as of late. The Maybach Music Group emcee, who was released from house arrest recently, spoke about new perspective in an interview with XXL.

"The industry is so made-up and smoke-and-mirrors," explained the Def Jam rapper when asked about lessons learned from being signed to a major label. "You just have to be yourself and let them know that you're not perfect. Because a lot of people aren't perfect; nobody's perfect."

"Niggas fart and shit. [Laughs] I'm that voice--that's me right there," he added. "I'll let the perfect people do what they do. They're good at it. They're good at being perfect, they're good at having their life look spotless to the media. I don't have that luxury or luck."

Gunplay also discussed advice from his boss, Rick Ross, regarding his house arrest. "'Man fuck all these n*ggas, man. Fuck 'em. Get your shit, man. Fuck everybody. Don't love none of these niggas--do you with a cold heart.' That was his advice."

    Getting money ain't shit if you can't afford to be respected. What the fuck is your money for if people still have the nerve to rob your chain at a FUCKING AWARD SHOW?!?! This already proves no gun is gonna save you when niggas get hungry. If you ain't even safe there, what makes you think you're Superman? What makes you think nobody's gonna try to steal something from you, whether you're in your old hood or even at your own crib? That chain is a reminder of how insignificant you are.

      Whatever who cares bout that nigga anyway? Not me he garbage I hope he gets raped by a pack of niggas

      ^^ And there you have it. He's suicidal. Can't even respect himself, let anone respect others. He just had that shit coming for him. Yet he still tries to play gangsta but that's just not the way shit goes.

    "these guys take more L's then the I've ever seen in my LIFE" If you call releasing albums and touring losing then you must not have won anything before. Jealousy is a disease. Don't let it spread.

    There was a time when you saw the Def Jam logo without any promo or buzz you knew you had a banger in your hands before even hearing it, and you were right. Now not so much.

    Major Distribution anyone??? The chain is making its second appearance after a night of bowling with 50 Cent.....lol, these guys take more L's then the I've ever seen in my LIFE and yet people continue to feed into their fuckery.....unreal lol.

  • LOUD

    Yall G-Unit fans with yall baggy clothes and hats twisted to the side need to go somewhere. Who cares if Gunplay got jumped he was whooping that one nigga head one on one. Gunplay is also better than every rapper on G-Unit. The only G-Unit rapper who got a fanbase in the streets is Lloyd Banks but that clown got no support from his label and don't know how to market hisself. Gunplay gets covered by all the hip hop blogs and his album is one of the most anticipated of 2013. Nobody in the streets bump 50 only people who gonna buy his album is Eminem Stans. 50 is a clown, 50 has no swag or bars. 50 beat selection is garbage also, kill yoself 50.

    • Chi-Ill

      Sir, I was just browsing threw your post and for some reason that word "Swag" jump out....... I automatically need it was a shit post! Then I READ the comments and yes Sir, It's a shit post Have A Nice Day

      one of the most anticipated albums of 2013? yeah right nicca! he wont even do chief keef numbers and then def jam will be dropping his junkie ass

    • KingO

      He wasn't whooping no one's azz, one on one....gunplay got his azz beatdown, got up, and attacked the first person he saw. Could have been an old person standing there, with all that coke in his system and his adrelaline pumping, he went beserk because he got embarrassed & then he realized, his chain was gone.

  • REALHIPHOP1984

    That MMG chain is on a G Unit world tour!!! Good job lookin out for G Unit Gunplay!!

  • Chi-Ill

    Just one questions, why all these niggas that asking for interviews from artist don't ask real questions, these mothafukkss gotta grow a pair! How about, How do you feel about G-Unit sporting your MMG chain on "Major Distribution"? Why are you not trying to get your MMG chain back? What is Officer Rickys next move to try to get your chain back? OR is he just going to buy you another one? REAL MOTHAFKKNGGG QUESTIONS!!!!!!

    50cent ended Gunplay's career before it even began. 50cents son is wearing Dickplay's MMG chain in major distribution. Def Jam should jus save their money and drop this guy, he already a flop.

    • REALHIPHOP1984

      hahaha dickplay thats pretty funny, but whats even funnier than that is the fact that this crackhead dickplay even has a record contract this dude is complete garbage if he was of any sort of value, officer ricky wouldnt have had to sign Meek Mill, or Wale, I've seen dickplay in officer ricky's videos from day 1 this dude sucks

  • Wonderin

    Is this the same guy who has a tattoo of a swastika on the back of his neck?

  • datdude

    This crackhead version of Redman needs to worry about getting his chain back, and nothing else at the moment. I love how MMG stays dodging shit. Rick Ross was dodging the CO rumors, Meek Mill is dodging Cassidy's RAID on his ass, and Gunplay is dodging getting his ass whooped and chain stolen. We see right thru u niggas!

    • Anonymous

      MMG members would have more respect if they took their L's like men. Nobody expects them to be supergangsters but their moves lately make having Omarion a good fit for them.

    • Brandon

      Get over Rick Ross being a CO dumb ass, he was 19 years old. What that got to do with him as a person? Negro had a low paying gig in the clink, who cares? Like where they do that at?

    • Mu

      Oh, so he's not G because he got jumped by 5-6 niggas and got his chain taken? What would you have done, summoned your special powers on some street fighter shit and destroyed all of them? Yall internet hip-hop nerds crack me up. If there is anybody in MMG who's really "bout that life" it's Gunplay. We have video footage of him running up on somebody with his gun drawn. Not saying I condone that, but fuck outta here talkin' bout you see right thru niggas. If you were a real nigga you would see that Gunplay is a real nigga. Real recognize real, so I guess you just proved that you're not.
