Nobody does real talk like Reggie Ossé a.k.a. Combat Jack. The former rap industry attorney, media executive, author, and Internet radio talk-show personality now hosts The Combat Jack Show, where hip-hop's biggest names are put on the front line. The questions will be tough—and shots will be fired. Co-hosted by Dallas Penn, Premium Pete, and Just Blaze, The Combat Jack Show appears every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday on Complex TV.
In the second part of our three part interview with Gunplay on The Combat Jack Show, Gunplay discusses his marijuana use, which he began smoking when he was 12-years-old. "I know Jamaicans and shit, and they be having that good yard, sticky brown weed down there," he says. "I love weed so much, I wish every time I breathed, it was weed. If oxygen was weed, I wanted to stay high and never come down."
Gunplay also details his start in selling cocaine at the age of 15, and he was skillful, to a certain extent. "I was nice with it. Really, I was just breaking them down to .4 because it was so clean. I didn't know how to cut nothing, and I didn't want to fuck my shit up," Gunplay recounts. However, the Carol City rapper broke one of the "Ten Crack Commandments" when he started consuming his own supply. "At that time I was just living for the moment. You out here, riding out trying to get your little money, man, it's a little pick me up."
Gunplay goes on to explain that once his funds dried up, he turned to robbing, which he describes as a drug in its own right. "When I get hungry, personally, I turn into something else. I need to eat." Heavy into the game, Gunplay recalls one specific incident in which he almost got shot. "We got into a shootout in front of a radio station. Five or six bullet holes through my car, and it's me, Torch and Young Breed, Triple C's, still inside the car."
