Between the release of footage that resulted in Gunplay being charged with armed robbery and assault coupled with his since deleted controversial tweets regarding the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting, things haven’t exactly been smooth for the Florida rapper as of late.
Despite all of this, the rapper has kept a positive attitude while still maintaining focus on his music, specifically his new mixtape Cops N Robbers. “It’s a compilation of my newest features, remixes, a couple unreleased records and some unreleased freestyles,” he said.
The mixtape, which has been delayed from January 8th to 18th, is a precursor to his Def Jam solo debut Medellin, which he says will be released sometime this spring. When asked why he decided to sign with Def Jam, the rapper cited loyalty as the main factor.
“That’s where we got our start from.. so, I’m like a loyal dude, I wouldn’t want to go nowhere else. I know the staff here, everybody knows me. To go somewhere else would be wack.”
