Song Review-Bail Bond by Mozzy & Gunplay
The story of this partnership is an one for the history books. Gunplay is a top 5 all time rap crew guy. Fought all of G-unit by himself for the MMG team, went on the lamb came back dropped a great album. Truth is, he was never going to patiently wait for the rotation of major label push to go from Ross to Meek to Wale to him. So after an amicable exit (he still kills his guest spot on Port of Miami 2) he went West.
Mozzy works different. His beats are economically constructed West Coast slappers and he pumps out dope song after dope song. If your a fan you always have something new to chew on. Gunplay took to it like a man finally unleashed. The two have been pumping out GRIMY collaborative albums with lyrics so hardcore they can be stymieing. Bail Bond is the perfect table setter for 2019’s best GOON rap album (Chop Stixx & Banana Clips). When Gunplay said ” My dog gon’ tell you he done died three times/Over one bad bitch, a brick and three dimes.” I made a promise to myself if I ever meet Gunplay I have to ask him for that full story.
Both of these guys are old enough to know a hardcore life is hard to live. This isn’t a joyride through street cred. Both of them know prison like you don’t, know being hunted like you never will. Listening to them is not just great it is instructive. Mozzy can put you in the scene where they are yelling “free the team” while doing business with the enemies your locked up for riding on. The world leaves you cold and alone in lock up and even those who love you the most, move on. You lose something and I can never describe it because I haven’t lived it. Gunplay and Mozzy paint pictures so you can see the crook’s whole journey, not just the sentence.
