“I was on cocaine since, like, 10 years, 12 years, something like that.” ~Gunplay
Facing Demons Head-On?
He may have been delving into cocaine since he was a kid, but Gunplay says he’s finally defeated that demon. This after the rapper reveals he also recently kicked smoking cigarettes. Now, the Maybach Music recording artist says he’s a better rapper with a clear mind.
Here’s what Gunplay told MTV News:
“I was on cocaine since, like, 10 years, 12 years, something like that. I wasn’t junktified where I was stealing stuff and stuff like that, but it was my thing. I have a strong will. I quit cigarettes early this year, cold turkey. Whatever I put my mind to, whatever I wanna do, I’m strong like that. If I wanted to quit smoking refer — it’s nothing.
Memorial Day Weekend 2008, I was on the beach, I was just goin’ hard and just took my last blast and said, ‘Man, I’m tired of my nose hurtin’, tired of looking all drawed up. The drugs just enhance what you’re thinking but when you’re sober, you speak from the heart and it’s not just rambling on — it makes sense. Now you get to analyze every word and every bar and you make sure everything is on time.”
Does Gunplay drive around Miami with a bible on his dashboard, while smoking blunts and reeking of liquor? Of course. Don’t believe me.. Ask former correctional officer William “Rick Ross” Roberts.
