Finally rising up toward success at the age of 30, Gunplay of MMG credits it all to hard work, “really grinding” at his craft everyday, and to always delivering a true message. He expressed his admiration for how Tupac would be “flashy and all that but then he’ll drop a jewel on you,” but his own symbol for following in that blueprint is less intuitive. Of course, we’re referring to his swastika tattoo.
Gunplay said that having witnessed the “filthy, dirty game” of the music industry, he inked a swastika to the back of his neck as a “symbol of genocide to the bullshit. Mass murdering the bullshit [...] 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.”
It’s a head-scratcher of an explanation for a black man to sport the notorious emblem of white supremacy, but at least he seems to take his work seriously. “It might take little bit longer for you to get on because everybody around you is minus 100,” but he is committed to topping the heap. “I can talk but I’ma show niggas,” Gunplay continued. “I got a mission. Just playing the game for the meantime.”
