Cory Gunz Arrested With Gun; Father Says Rapper Profiled


(AllHipHop News) Bronx, New York rapper Cory Gunz was arrested yesterday (January 28), after police found him in possession of a loaded handgun.

Police caught the rapper with a loaded, unregistered Taurus .9mm handgun.

Cory Gunz, born Peter Pankey Jr., is currently in custody in the Bronx.

His father, rapper Peter Gunz, told MTV News that his son was the victim of an illegal search.

“It was definitely an illegal search,” Peter Gunz told MTV News.

Peter Gunz further elaborated on his 24-year-old son’s arrest.

The rapper was exiting a cab when plain clothes officers aggressively approached him.

“He just got out of a cab and police ran up on him and they were in plainclothes,” Peter Gunz told the New York Daily News. “He didn’t know they were cops – he thought he was getting robbed.”

Peter Gunz said his son was currently in Central Booking, where he is being processed.

Although its his first offense, Corey’s father is worried that New York’s strict anti-gun laws will have an adverse affect on his son’s career.

The same laws sent Lil Wayne, the CEO of Young Money, Cory’s label, to jail for eight months in 2010.

“At the end of the day, there’s a reason for everything, but at the same time, in New York, it’s mandatory jail time,” Peter Gunz told MTV News. “To go to a precinct and see your son, your junior, in handcuffs, it’s heartbreaking. Anytime you see your child in jail, in the cell, in handcuffs, it’s very hard.”

Even though its his first offense, Cory Gunz faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 3 and 1/2 years in prison.

    I love how that clown Peter Gunz is just beating around the fact that his son, who has enough money to hire a bodyguard if he’s scared of summin, was walking around with a loaded Unregistered handgun…….. I understand its his kid but it is what it is, shoulda taught your son to act right…… All these Cash Money kids think there tougher then they are, Drake throwing up gang signs, this kid walking around with heaters

    JUST CAUSE BIRDMAN HAS SOME GANGSTERS ON HIS PAYROLL DOES NOT MAKE YOU TOUGH

    That kid probably crying in booking right now, its all fun and games to you get the consequences

    Even if he was targeted it was for a reason. Folk have to keep in mind between the Patriot Act, them rolling out portable X-Ray machines and other stuff; our waist band, pockets, bags, keystrokes and texts are NOT private. That mandy minimum is a tough line to tow for a first offender, especially one with a budding rap career. Cory Gunz you got the juice now.

    Damn why couldnt it be Nicki Manji and Drake and lil wayne. Oh well life goes on.

  • Profiled or not this dude had shit on him. I co-sign that why couldn’t it be drake…or the entire YMCB label for that matter, they all whack as hell!!!

  • EL_BARK

    If was an illegal search, he ptolly might beat it or get probation.
    I am sure his pop got a good lawyer in the cut, or can get one.
    It might cost a littld bread, but since it his first offense,
    He might have a smidget, of wiggle room.

    But gunz in NY is a no no….

  • ask me

    niggaz with no record is stupid all you gotta do is apply for a gun permit its way easier then yall think especially if you clean like he was oh well welcome to felon hood cory

    • Michael Burmeister

      Excuse me-we have a CONSTITUTION, and that CONSTITUTION has a SECOND AMENDMENT. THAT’s my gun permit.

      • illymac

        U obviously dont have any felonies or prior arrests..
        however, please make sure U come back and let us know how it works out for U,
        when U get caught with the banger without having a license..
        let me know if that constitution second amendment stuff works..

  • It is what it is!

    You gotta take the good with the bad!
    It’s a cold world , he had to pack his own heat!

    I guess he’d rather be caught with one…than without one.

    • johnblacksad

      In the words of Don Ke a.k.a. Lil Keke :”I’ll catch a pistol case before I leave it at the crib!” -gangstaest sh!t ever

      Peace EDO… i know you in NY & i know your heat game tight… careful, it’s slippery out there

  • illymac

    With no criminal record, why he aint just apply for his gun license ??

    • Michael Burmeister

      Because we have a CONSTITUTION, and that CONSTITUTION has a SECOND AMENDMENT.  THAT’s my gun license.

      • Carlton Jordan

        youre obv white. 

      • Michael Burmeister

        The Constitution is color-blind…if you vote for Obama again, you’re basically voting for four more years of government crackdowns like this.

        RON PAUL 2012-he’d get rid of ’em all!

  • khaosol.com

    tough break nigga!

  • Michael Burmeister

    What about the SECOND AMENDMENT? Cory was exercising his CONSTUTITIONAL RIGHT…that trumps any stupid state laws. Look for it to get ruled unconstitutional before too long. Of course, you voted for a RINO gun-control freak as mayor of NYC and a house negro as President of the USA, so you’re on your own.

    NYC: RECALL BLOOMBERG
    AMERICA: NOVEMBER 6, 2012-TAKE OUT THE TRASH!
