Gunplay: “I want to kill everyone from the G-Unit crew”
Rapper Gunplay said that he did not fire a gun during the BET Hip-Hop Awards, but claims that he did assault a member of 50 Cent’s entourage — adding that he wants to “kill” everyone from the G-Unit crew.
According to reports, Gunplay — whose real name is Richard Morales Jr. — called in to TMZ Live to discuss the incident during the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta on Saturday, where a fracas broke out behind the scenes.
Gunplay — who’s signed to Def Jam — said the he “had to fight off five dudes,” who he believes were member of 50 Cent’s camp.
Gunplay added that things got out of hand with 50’s group because “I never liked them and always wanted to kick his ass … and I finally got the opportunity.”
The 30-year-old rapper said 50 Cent was involved in the melee, but was “hiding behind security.” Gunplay said he was trying to “break his f*ckin’ neck.”
Gunplay added he managed to bring down one of the guys from 50 Cent’s entourage, saying he “kicked one of their fat-asses … kicked them off in the dirt.” Gunplay says he authorities then rushed in at the scene of the fight and sprayed him with mase.
Gunplay said his fight had nothing to do with Rick Ross’ beef with Young Jeezy’s crew at the BET Awards, but explains, “We just goin’ at it with everybody … let’s go kill ‘em all.”
Gunplay then concluded, “If you’re playin’ with me, you’re playin’ with fire … might get gunned down, ya never know.”
In 1997, Gunplay met with Carol City native Rick Ross and their passion for music led them to make Triple C’s (Carol City Cartel). The trio worked hard to build a buzz, later releasing their debut album “Custom Cars & Cycles” in 2009, which debuted at #44 on the U.S. Billboard 200. Currently, they are working on a collaborative album with rapper French Montana called “Color, Cut & Clarity.”
Gunplay made his solo debut on Rick Ross track “Gun Play” on the album “Deeper Than Rap.” He released mixtapes under Maybach Music Group while appearing on featured tracks and making appearances on collaborative albums. In July 2012, Gunplay signed a solo deal with Def Jam and will be releasing his debut album Bogotá under the label. He announced that he was working with producers from the south and he will be collaborating with Pharell.
