Gunplay: "I'm Not Scared of Success Now"

Gunplay approaches a medium height Hispanic male who has jus taken a bump of coke. He disrespectfully places a finger in front of Gunplay's face suggesting for him to hold on. Not one to take the disrespect lightly, Gunplay pulls out a gun from his waist and shoots the man in the head.

Though Gunplay has a live wire, pop-off-at-any-time reputation, this night the rapper is just rehearsing scenes at Florida Film House for an upcoming movie entitled "RealGoons.com."

The last couple of years for the Maybach Music rapper has been a roller coaster to say the least. And even after tree successful singles, "Rollin'," "Bible On The Dash" and "Aiight," Gunplay's Living Legend album has yet to hit shelves.

Gunplay took sometime out of rehearsal to talk to Crossfade about 2014, the delay for Living Legend, "The Field: Miami" and why local acts can't get on Miami radio stations.
