Gunplay may be down, but the Maybach Music menace is certainly not out. Despite his current house arrest , Rick Ross’ right-hand man got back to work and on Monday night released “Drop,” the first single from his upcoming solo debut Medellin. And if you thought his legal woes would make Gun ease up on the tough talk, you have another thing coming.
“It’s just me giving you that dope, that d-boy talk,” Don Logan told MTV News on Tuesday (November 13) while he is currently held up on house arrest in Miami after he turned himself in on robbery-related charges back in October.
The Beat Billionaire-produced “Drop” doesn’t disappoint in the least bit. Propelled by a sinister bass beat, it finds Gun using his usually free-wheeling rhyme style to paint another dangerous drug deal. “I just came to drop the sack off/ I ain’t countin’, I ain’t weighin’, I ain’t chillin’, I ain’t stayin’, nahwhaimsayin,” he spits on the song’s hook.
Gun promises that on his upcoming LP, which is due out on Maybach Music Group/Def Jam in 2013, he will deliver the same frantic street anthems that he has been giving fans like on his recently released mixtape 601 & Snort. “Look out for some high-energy records, some real true to life, some real life ish on those records,” he said about what fans can expect from Medellin.
Unfortunately for Gunplay, he has to prep the album, while simultaneously prepping for a trial after a April 13 stick-up which left him with assorted armed robbery and assault charges. “I’m very optimistic. I feel good, we just got one last hurdle — the trial — and that’s it, and then after that I’m touching that turf,” he said confidently before once again turning the attention to his LP. “It’s nothing but stick-to-your-rib, crack music. It’s what the streets been missing. It ain’t that B.S.”
