Gunplay talks 'Love & Hip Hop Miami,' Rick Ross' effect on his career on 'The Breakfast Club'

Plus, the rapper discusses his "pimp" past, quitting drugs, and his issues with Def Jam.


The always entertaining Gunplay stopped by The Breakfast Club this morning. The Love & Hip Hop Miami star discussed his reasons for joining the L&HH franchise, issues with Def Jam and Rick Ross’ effect on his career.

On why he joined the cast of Love & Hip Hop Miami: Because I couldn't sell no music. I was tired of the bullshit. I said, let me just get some TV money.

On issues with Def Jam: I don’t know what they do in that building, but it ain’t right. It wasn’t benefitting me. I put music out. They started pulling my shit and all type of weirdo shit.

On if Rick Ross could’ve done more to help his career: I mean, he has his own shit going on, so I take that small percentage of shine and light and turn it into something. I don't really need nobody holding my hands.

On his past as a pimp: I wanted to address that too because I really wasn’t a pimp. A pimp eats, sleeps, shits pimp shit. All my life I’m a hustler so, at the time, the dope game [had] kind of dried up for a second, so I just sold some hoes.
