Gunplay was facing life in prison. During an interview with New York radio station Power 105.1, the Triple C’s rapper said what he was thinking about while fighting charges stemming from an October 2012 incident where he allegedly robbed his accountant at gunpoint.
“You just talk to your son and your thinking these are your last moments,” Gunplay said during an interview with The Breakfast Club Thursday (June 13). “You always got to cherish them. You’re talking to your mom and usually I’d be like, ‘Aight, mom. I’ll call you back.’ This time I’d sit there and listen for a hour.”
The charges against Gunplay were dropped due to the victim not cooperating with authorities, even though the alleged act was caught on a surveillance camera. The Miami rapper repeatedly expressed gratitude and appreciation for his freedom during the interview. “I don’t get upset no more,” he said. “I smile a lot.”
The Maybach Music Group rapper also discussed the aftermath of his acquittal, a failed marriage, parenting, spirituality, and his relationship with 50 Cent during The Breakfast Club interview. Gunplay and 50 Cent were involved in a backstage brawl at the 2012 BET Hip Hop awards. Gunplay’s chain was reportedly stolen during the confrontation and a similar chain appeared in 50 Cent’s “Major Distribution” video featuring Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy.
Even though Gunplay Tweeted 50 Cent and asked him to download his mixtape, he had he had no problems with 50 Cent, but that he wouldn’t necessarily back down from another altercation with 50 Cent, even given his recent legal situation.

“At the end of the day I’m a man first, I aint gonna get tried by nobody,” Gunplay says. “I don’t care how much money you got, how many people you killed, we on the same thing. That’s not going to happen…But I’m not looking for no trouble. I’m good. I haven’t frowned. I haven’t raised my voice in a minute. I’ve been smiles, moving forward getting this music done, focusing on this the album now.”
The MMG rapper’s forthcoming solo album, originally titled Medellin, will now be called Living Legend. The Triple C’s member said that the name change was inspired by his recent legal issues. “Not many people, or rappers for that matter…go through what I went through while in the public eye and bounced back from it, bounced back stronger than ever,” he says. “I did that and I think I’m a living legend and I don’t give a fuck if you don’t feel it.”
On Monday (June 10), Gunplay released his Acquitted mixtape, which features the song “Bible On The Dash.”
