We’re not sure whether the tipping point was Gunplay’s brawl with G-Unit at the 2012 BET Awards or his growling guest appearance on Kendrick’s undercover classic “Cartoon & Cereal,” but people have been fiending for an album from MMG’s dreadlocked mad man for quite some time now.
Well, things are looking up, gang.
The first official single from the Carol City rapper is called “WuzHaninDoe,” featuring YG and timely production from DJ Mustard. All artists come correct, especially YG400, who doesn’t typically sound this invigorated on guest features. But, before getting too excited, keep in mind the beat – and possibly the entire song – sounds like a leftover from My Krazy Life. Quite frankly, I’d be surprised if it wasn’t. Nevertheless, the track packs a punch and may very well be exactly what Play needs to finally pop off.
Living Legend drops the summer.
