Essential Listening: 601 & Snort
If You Don't Believe Us Listen To: "Take This"
Don Logan was too underrated for too long until he broke out this year. We can't help but use the defense of, "But he never did anything dope before!" Okay, "Rollin'" was dope. But still.
Gunplay is a relevant solo artist primarily because of two excellent guest verses: the first on Kendrick Lamar's “Cartoons and Cereal” and the second on MMG’s “Power Circle.” While most people aren't sleeping on those verses, they are sleeping on his highly entertaining mixtapes, Bogota Rich and 601 & Snort.
Even if Gunplay’s songwriting needs some work (his mixtapes are filled with mostly freestyles), he has more personality than your average rapper and is definitely more than just Rick Ross’ weed carrier. Hail Logan!
