Gunplay is quite the entertainer. The Miami rapper has impressed fans with his work on Kendrick Lamar’s “Cartoon and Cereal,” as well as his quotable verse in “Power Circle” off Maybach Music Group’s Self Made Vol. 2. But Gunplay shines the most during his colorful commentaries in interviews, often revealing some interesting tidbits about his former life, rap style, and character.

In a two-part feature with The Miami New Times, The Triple Cs member opens up about his solo debut, his swastika tattoo, and even starting his own escort agency. While it was difficult to choose the best quotes, here are a few favorites. You can read the rest of the story here and here.

On being Gunplay:

"I shoot first, ask questions later, man. I ain't gonna let you knock on my mama's door and tell my mama no bullshit. I'm gon' call my mama: "Mama, this fuck nigga, I had to handle my business. Call a lawyer right quick. Come get me, Mama!" Nah, I put her through enough, I don't call my mama no more. I just call my dog, my lawyer, call my bondsman ... I'm up out this bitch."

On his unpredicatable personality:

"You might think I'm retarded and dumb. Cool, I like to keep an air of unpredictability around me. I might dap you up, smile, and slap you in the face. I don't even know what I'm gonna do next."

On his swastika tattoo:

"The swastika was a Chinese symbol back in the day, meaning love, peace, and prosperity. When Hitler picked it as a symbol for his Third Reich, it was right side up. And after he got in power, he turned it to the left, and that's when it got corrupt.
"That's basically the same thing that happened with me. We're born innocent, and the way you grow up — the people you're surrounded by, the environment — it turns you crooked. It turns you into that bad person, that thug, that undesirable element... If anyone don't like it, fuck them. [Unless] I go to prison or they kill my ass, I don't care."

On pimping/starting an escort agency:

"When the dope game dried up, my next best thing is the bitches. So my next move was po' pimpin. This has been my dream since I was a kid. Since I broke my first bitch, I always knew, yeah, I'm gonna own an escort service. I'm gonna take this po' pimpin' to some mo' pimpin'. If [Def Jam] don't like it, they'll be fucked up, 'cause I'm doing it.
"When you see [the Apples and Onions escorts], they're bad, you gon' want to spend that. Sex has been selling since the beginning of time. It's never gonna stop. It's never a drought, it's never a dull year. The business is a billion dollars a year. You're not gonna tell me I can't get at least $15 million out of that $1 billion. It's impossible."

On calling his album Medellin:

"I snorted coke in Medellín, and they said my career was over. So now they gonna go buy my album titled Medellín... Cocksucker, Christmas is cancelled!"
