EXCLUSIVE: Gunplay Speaks On His New Found Freedom, New Album

(AllHipHop News)It has been a long battle for Richard Morales better known in rap circles as Gunplay.

Gunplay surrendered to police on October 9th on an outstanding warrant stemming from armed robbery and assault charges on April 13th, 2012.

Allegedly, the Cops & Robbers rapper assaulted and robbed Miami accountant Turron Woodside.

Less than a week later, TMZ leaked incriminating video footage of the alleged robbery/assault.

Gunplay was facing life in prison and went into court-mandated exile with his house arrest.

He has returned a free man with the case being dismissed after reports from TMZ of Woodside being "uncooperative" released.

Rejuvenated by this positive turn of events, the aggressive MC is ready to capitalize on the momentum he created before being thrown behind bars and restricted to house arrest.

Gunplay spoke exclusively with AllHipHop and took us on a play by play of his first week of being released since the case was dismissed:

"The next day I was in New York with the Bath Salt Boss...with Rozay at [BET's] Rip the Runway. I'm just chilling. It feels good to be around my dog and my family , I was just chillin smoking good ..reflecting on how these donkey n*ggas try to take a n*ggas shit ..that don't stop nothing we working ,we blessed ..we prayed up"

Gunplay also spoke about his upcoming Def Jam debut album, Medellin and what its going to take for it to find a release date.

"Shout out to Def Jam they ready," says the heavily tattooed Rick Ross associate "they just need that one hit, so I'm working. Sitting down with Rico Love and it's been 7 days since the case got dismissed. This is the 7th day today. I'm in the studio with Rico Love dropping that crack"

The highly demanded singer/songwriter/producer Rico Love touched on reaching out to Gunplay to help work on his debut album:

"Gunplay is one of the illest lyricist. People don't know that and people don't understand how sick he is with the flow. How diverse he is. He can adapt to any beat. I've heard him rap on beats with all different tempos. I always was impressed with his delivery an even his bars. Line for line I think he has alot to offer the game"
