Gunplay & YG & Mustard & Low-Riders & Miscellaneous Boolin.
Harold Stallworth occasionally writes under the pseudonym Ben Kingsley. Def Jam’s pussyfooted approach to Gunplay’s post-2011 career has been disappointing at best, negligent at worst. His bio page on the label’s official website has been dormant since last summer, and even fails to mention that he’s since changed his rap moniker to Don Logan, presumably […]
Waiting for Gunplay October 15, 2014
Will Hagle will not just wait on it.  I’ve been listening to Spotify’s edited version of Hell Can Wait because it’s the app’s first search result for ‘Vince Staples’ and I don’t have enough hard drive space on my computer to save the real EP. I’ve also been streaming Gunplay’s new self-titled tape on DatPiff and […]
Harold Stallworth will crush you like a jellybean. Two of rap’s most endearing underdogs, Gunplay and Cormega, have finally joined forces over a flat mafioso beat, courtesy of the invariably generic Hazardis Soundz. The pairing isn’t as unconventional as you might think. Gunplay’s 2009 rendition of “Memory Lane” was among the sharpest barbs thrown during […]
“To Nardwuar” has become a verb meaning to ambush an interviewee with the most random facts that you can cull from their past. But like the essay getting bastardized into the thinkpiece, this was once just called good journalism. It’s strange how the Internet has empowered us to be able to dig up the most […]
Ricardo Morales rocking the V for Vendetta eyebrows on the cover of Acquitted. This is inevitably an homage and acknowledgment to the familial ties between Aubrey Graham and the roster that Rozay built. This is what you have come to expect from Gunplay. 10 gracious melodies, lullabies to sooth the savage beasts and instill essential […]
Everything amazing and asinine about Ricardo Morales is contained in this video, short of off-putting references to all the Adolfs. You have the needless intro where Gunplay flexes his Vincent Chase in Medellin Spanish. You also have lines like “I asked the pastor, what’s the fastest way to heaven for a bastard/With a tarnished past, […]
Gunplay continuing to be the calm-headed, sober-minded and chill bro that we’re accustomed to. All I want for Earth Day is to discover the real back story about why Gunplay’s business manager suddenly refused to testify against his former client who was shown flashing the iron at him on camera. Maybe MMG is truly teflon. […]
In what is an obviously sinister plot to make you turn up your system even louder, Gunplay has released arguably the worst mastered tape in the history of mixtapes. Somehow this has shattered the record of even the most ratchet recording of all-time: Boosie & Hurricane Chris’ Bad Azz Hurricane. This is more of Gunplay […]
