A day after reports flooded the Internet over Maybach Music Group member Gunplay turning himself over to local authorities, confirmation and details of his incarceration have emerged.
According to new reports, Gunplay officially gave himself up to Miami police Wednesday (October 10).
Rick Ross protégé Gunplay turned himself in to a Miami jail moments ago after a warrant was issued for his arrest, stemming from an armed robbery -- Gunplay's attorney tells TMZ. The warrant was issued in May, listing "robbery" as the offense. No other details about the alleged offense are listed. Gunplay's attorney Mike Grieco tells us, "Gunplay voluntarily surrendered today without incident. There's been an open arrest warrant for armed robbery with a firearm." A rep for Gunplay tells TMZ, the rapper was advised to turn himself in by his attorney following the highly-publicized brawl, which likely drew police attention to the active warrant. (TMZ)
Initial reports suggested he may have turned himself over yesterday.
Gunplay is taking the term "troubled rapper" to a whole new level. Barely a week after being caught on camera getting his ass kicked by 50 Cent and his G-Unit crew , the Maybach Music rapper is heading to jail today for an outstanding arrest warrant on armed robbery and assault charges. The report was announced by Power 105.1 Angela Yee--and later clarified by DDotOmen , who released the below image of the chargesheet. (Prefix Mag)
Coincidentally, the Maybach Music Group member dropped a new track called "Rap Sheet" this week.
Talk about life imitating rap. Gunplay unleashes a new song "Rap Sheet" boasting about his criminal ways ("Your rap sheet ain't longer than your gun. Check mine!") just as news breaks that he is turning himself into authorities on outstanding charges. Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" shared the ironic news this morning that the Maybach Music Group rapper will be surrendering to law enforcement officials for outstanding warrants against him for armed robbery and assault charges. He reportedly doesn't know what the punishment for his offenses will be or how long he may be incarcerated. (Rap-Up)
This all comes at the height of a recent altercation with 50 Cent and G-Unit.
This doesn't seem to be dying down anytime soon. Following their much-publicized run-in at the BET Hip-Hop Awards taping in Atlanta, Gunplay confirmed on NY radio that his MMG chain was taken. By the looks of this newly released footage, the diamond-encrusted MMG piece that was in G-Unit affiliate Mike Knox's hands is now in the possession of 50 Cent. Recently, 50 went out for a night of bowling at Lucky Strike in D.C. with his new piece. (Miss Info TV)
