(AllHipHop News) Miami rapper Gunplay a.k.a. “Don Logan,” touched on his latest collaboration with recently released former Hot Boy, Young Turk, who served eight years in a federal prison after a shootout with Memphis S.W.A.T. Team members in 2004.
The rappers recorded the title track for Turk’s new mixtape “Blame it on the System,” and filmed a music video for the single.
Gunplay touched on the respect he held for his Hip-Hop comrade and a similar drive that he held, after being released from his own stint on house arrest in March of 2013.
“He’s got history in this game , he had been incarcerated for a minute…I was fortunate enough to overcome and beat the case [but] we been in the same predicament,” Gunplay explained to AllHipHop.com. “I was blessed to get out of the situation ..I bet Turk learned from his lessons, I bet he evolved and grew as an artist. I hear it in the music. From the time he got out he didn’t skip a beat, he kept working [and] everyone noticed it. I noticed it and that’s what really made me ‘say ok he trying to win.'”
