Hitmaker Rico Love recently talked about his admiration for Maybach Music Group's Gunplay and how underrated he is as an elite hip-hop artist.
In Rico's perspective, Gunplay is able to adjust his flow to any beat thrown his way.
"Gunplay is one of the illest lyricists. 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" (All Hip Hop)
Recently, Gunplay talked about making mainstream headlines and beating a felony robbery case.
"I feel humbled. I feel blessed. I feel like I hit the lotto. I'm just happy to be back with my friends and family. I just wanted to publicly for the record apologize to the two parties involved, my family, the victim's family. Shout out to the boss - you already know the Miami mayor, man, was behind me the whole time. And I ain't going to blow it.I'm ready to work. I'm real focused." (NBC6 South)
Details of the good news started circulating online late last month.
9:20 AM PT -- Gunplay tells TMZ, the first thing he's going to do now that the case is dismissed ... is roll a fat joint ... oh yeah, then spend time with his "loved ones." He tells us, "Today I am grateful and blessed that the case was dismissed ... I plan on picking up where I left off with my music and making hits with my upcoming debut album ... The first thing I am going to do today is smoke a joint, relax, play video games, and just be with my loved ones." (TMZ)
The Maybach Music Group member's legal woes turned into a hot topic last fall.
MTV News obtained exclusive footage of the rapper turning himself in on October 10 and even checked in on Gunplay via Skype after he posted $150,000 bond. While on house arrest, the Rick Ross protégé was hard at work on his upcoming solo debut Medellin in his home studio. Back in November, he dropped "Drop," the LP's first street single. (MTV)
