"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.
