While Peter Gunz has been putting his personal affairs on blast on Love & Hip Hop New York, it has led many to ask, “What’s up with Cory Gunz?” According to the elder Gunz, his YMCMB rapper son’s once fiery buzz had to be tempered to avoid jail time, but his proper debut album will drop in 2014.
Back in January 2012, Cory Gunz got arrested with a loaded gun in The Bronx. Although he had never committed a crime, he was still facing between two and nine years in prison. Add to the mix the Young Money affiliation, and his father felt that his son might be made an example of by the justice system.
So his plan was to get Cory out of the spotlight. “I figured if he cooled off and the cameras stopped coming to the courts and the newspapers stayed away, the judge may look at him as a kid that’s never been in trouble before and give him probation,” Peter Gunz told Hip-Hop Wired. “And it worked.”
The Love & Hip Hop New York star added, “Now we can go back and get him where he need to be. It’s not easy being hot cold, hot cold, but I’d rather that than to see my son sit in prison for two and a half years.”
Check out Peter Gunz speak further on the situation below.
