On Wednesday’s (July 25) episode of “RapFix Live,” host Sway Calloway played back a six-year-old clip of the MTV show “My Block,” on which Lupe played tour guide by taking our cameras through his native Chicago. But the trip down memory lane proved to be too much for Lu, who started to cry while watching the footage.
“It’s some of them dudes is dead,” “Chicago’s the murder capital. The dudes in that video are in prison, a couple of fed cases, and then there’s ghosts. You see people that, that ain’t there,” “Nothing’s changed,” he said Wednesday. “Some of those kids ain’t gonna make it out of there. You feel so helpless. That was me, talking to me six years ago.”
Between his recent collaborations with Kendrick Lamar and MMG, and his solo deal with Def Jam, rapper Gunplay has been making a name for himself as one of Hip Hop’s next hottest rappers. Now, in a recent interview with Pigeons and Planes, the Triple C emcee explains one of the more controversial aspects of his brand.
Gunplay discussed the swastika tattoo that his has on the back of his neck. He says that the ink doesn’t directly refer to his support of Nazism or anything of the like; rather, it refers to his modus operandi of bringing the real and disregarding the fake.
“It’s just my symbol of genocide to the bullshit. Mass murdering the bullshit,” he explained. “Too much bullshit out here. I came to Nazi that shit. I came to Hitler that motherfucker. Put all the fake motherfuckers in the gas chamber and gas your fuck ass. That’s what I’m here to do. So niggas better walk light around a nigga. I’ma show niggas. I can talk but I’ma show niggas. All that fake shit, I’ma call that shit out and I’ma stomp that shit out. I got a mission. Just playing the game for the meantime.”
