Gunplay might finally be getting a shot! The out-of-control Miami rap firebrand has been kicking around the margins of Rick Ross’s Maybach Music empire for years, recording furious amazing bug-eyed verses and generally solidifying his rep as rap’s great scene-stealing wildman, but there’s been almost no talk of him getting his own album. But now, he’s got a new single that sounds like a big look. “Kush” is an airy synth-rap thing about weed, and it’s got a Rick Ross verse and a verse and hook from Lil Wayne in full Auto-Tune mode. This isn’t exactly the strongest showcase for Gunplay, since his flow never gets room to achieve liftoff, but his voice still cuts through the track like a flaming dagger. And hey, maybe there’ll be an album one day! Listen below.

Supposedly there’s a Gunplay album called Living Legend coming next year. We’ll see!
