The 25 Biggest Hip-Hop Fails of 2012

9. Gunplay Pleads Guilty to Gun Charge, Put on House Arrest

Date: October 12

Gunplay lives the life depicted in his music. His songs are aggressive rollercoaster rides with beats pockmarked by bullet sprays and bomb blasts. (Check "Jump Out.") His neck has a swastika seared into it; his Wiki page doesn't mention charm school. And so maybe it wasn't surprising to see footage leak of him pistol-whipping his taxman before stealing money and jewelry, but...now? Right as his career was taking off, after scene-stealing verses alongside Rick Ross and Kendrick Lamar?

The clip puts everything in jeopardy, saddening and maddening. Based off of his current charges, Gunplay could go behind bars for the rest of his days; right now, he's stuck in his living room. It's too bad.
