Gunplay Talks Mmg And Collaboration With Pharrell
In a recent interview with Vibe, Gunplay talks about working with Pharrell on his debut LP 'Bogotá’ and his changing role in the MMG group, saying he didn’t mind being the ‘hype man’ because you have to crawl before you ball. He said of the experience of working with MMG: "The whole time I just sat there and rolled with the punches. I played my position to the T. I never tried to outshine—nah, I gotta roll a blunt, carry bags, and be a hype man? That’s what my job on the road is?
“Let’s go. You got to fall before you ball and step it up. The average guy is like, 'Man, I aint gotta do all that s**t.' Nah, you got to work around here. Just because I’m down from day one doesn’t mean a n***a is going to get a free check. You gotta pay your dues.”
He then spoke of his album and what the name means: "The name Bogotá is a culture. I got a Bogotá b***h… Bogotá is a lifestyle. The album is gonna be energy and a lot of pain. I’m about to sit down with Pharrell and a couple of other producers from the South. That’s the main priority right now, just making sure I get some time to sit down with Pharrell and knock something out. I know we’ll come out with something epic."
