Every member of Maybach Music Group offers some form of standout appeal, but Gunplay is easily the most entertaining.
A native of Texas, the 33-year-old is known to fly off the handle from time to time, but in the midst of all his legal troubles, drug tales, and controversial tattoos, music is still his main focus.
Gunplay is nothing short of an entire package. His rap skills aren’t bad but he’s also outspoken, boisterous and candid which is what fans connect to. And after cutting his teeth with appearances on collaborative albums, the Miami dweller—born Richard Morales Jr.—will release his long awaited Medellin debut, dropping next year.
The release could potentially add another No. 1 album to the MMG pot, and makes Gunplay the next in line to show and prove. Details behind the project are scarce but listening to a Gunplay record usually elicits an involuntary “turn up,” and he will try to maintain the same form of momentum with the release.
Hip-Hop Wired caught up with the rapper (still on house arrest stemming from an armed robbery incident), one day after unleashing his “Drop” single, where he spoke about his new album, Game possibly signing to MMG, and how being stuck in the house all this time has changed the way he looks at things.
Don’t be fooled, Gunplay is a reflective dude.
