Gunplay explains the meaning behind his controversial swastika tattoo in a recent interview.
MMG's Gunplay's buzz is continuing to grow, although it may have seemed unlikely that the 30-year-old emcee is now on the come-up, that seems to be the case.
Life since signing with Def Jam:
"Work, work. Now I feel like the clock’s ticking, know what I’m saying? Got to hurry up and get these records done and make sure I present the best product possible. Once I feel comfortable with it then I’ll let it go. So I’m trying to knock out three records a day and out of those three, I’ll only pick one that I want to put on the album. The rest is gonna be for the next tapes and shit."
On the swastika tattoo:
"Yeah, it’s just my symbol of genocide to the bullshit. Mass murdering the bullshit. 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."
The reaction from fans on Twitter thus far to Gunplay's explanation have been less than warm, many finding his reasoning insensitive.
