Rick Ross and Gunplay

Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Gunplay Still On That Yayo?


Def Jam’s newest signee, Gunplay, has made no secret about his battle with a cocaine addiction. Now that the rapper has a new deal in place, he is trying to get back together and reveals that he has finally kicked the habit. Check out what he told XXL Mag below:

“Right now? Aw man, trust me…it’s a whole other ballgame. I’m back to reality. I’m back to life. That sh*t gives you a f*cked-up attitude. It makes you snap on people you love. It’s not you, it’s the chemical imbalance that happens in your brain from snorting up that sh*t. You don’t even realize it. You think it’s the world against you. ‘Nah n*gga, your brain’s about to melt.’ My mama’s a nurse. She tells me about that sh*t. She knew I got high and she would just pray that I stopped. My mind is clear. I’m thinking way clearer and I’m not thinking on impulse much. I talk about it and acknowledge it. To this day, that’s my favorite drug; my drug of choice. Now, I just pop a Molly, f*ck it. That sh*t gets you high three, four hours and it stops. I’m back to reality.”

Gunplay’s drug problem was far worse that anyone ever knew. Check out how he describes his former addiction below:

“It got pretty bad. It got bad. I can’t let it get to the point where I steal and sh*t. That’s just f*ckdafied. I might borrow it from you, but I never really did some sh*t like that. I would just be like, ‘Front me with an 8-ball and I’ll just pay you later.’ Some sh*t like that. I would never steal or do dumb-a** sh*t like that. But how bad did it get? Just my health, man. Looking myself in the mirror and my nose never being right. I could never breathe straight and I’m always blowing my nose. I’m already a skinny n*gga and that sh*t draws me up even skinnier by the time I wake up in the morning, I lost 10 pounds, like ‘What the f*ck just happened?’ Then, that day you gotta be at a video shoot. You got raccoon eyes and you 10 pounds lighter and you can’t even breathe and you’re blowing your nose like crazy and sweating because that sh*t makes you sweat. Come on, man, you look crazy. That was really one of my first steps in really taking this rap sh*t seriously…and that was quitting coke. That was 2008.”

I’m glad he’s clean! Hopefully he can stay that way!
