He may be on house arrest for pulling a gun out on his accountant last year, but Gunplay isn’t letting that stop him from getting his money and making new music. In fact, the Maybach Music Group member has a new mixtape, entitled Cops & Robbers, set for release on 18 January and is preparing fresh material for an upcoming album too, which we can expect to hear in Spring.

Speaking to Hip Hop Since 1987’s E-Money, Gunplay explained that Cops & Robbers will feature unreleased music, new collaborations with artists such as Yo Gotti and unreleased freestyles. He also admitted that he has a huge passion for video games – naming Black Ops 2 and 2K13 as a couple of his favourites.

“I play video games excessively, to the point where I do that shit more than drugs,” he says.

After proving his worth in the industry last year with verses on hits including Kendrick Lamar‘s “Cartoon & Cereal” and MMG’s “Power Circle,” Gunplay went on to sign a solo deal with Def Jam and here, he claims that he chose the label because that’s where his loyalties lie.

Despite the question about what kind of guns Gunplay is a fan of – which I can’t help but feel is in bad taste given the recent shootings in Connecticut – this interview is worth a watch. Check it out below.
