Maybach Music Group rapper Gunplay currently has a great deal to carefully contemplate, as he has recently been released from house arrest after being released from jail on a $150,000 bond. He was arrested in connection with the robbery of a man at a Miami, Florida tax business. Being released from the constraints associated with house arrest allows Gunplay to freely navigate through that maze which is the life of an artist signed to a major record label. There is so much that has transpired in a relatively brief period of time. The artist recently spoke with XXL about how his perspective on life has evolved.
“The industry is so made-up and smoke-and-mirrors,” expressed the rapper when asked about what being signed to a major record label had revealed to him. “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.”
He elaborated further:
“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 shared the blunt and straight forward advice he received from his label Boss, Rick Ross.
“Man fuck all these n*ggas, man. Fuck ‘em. Get your shit, man. Fuck everybody. Don’t love none of these n*ggas–do you with a cold heart.’ That was his advice.”
