Gunplay Drops First Def Jam Solo Song, "Real Niggas," Featuring Rick Ross

Update: Explicit version added at 3:05 p.m. after the jump

Gunplay is one of Carol City's wildest motherfuckers. In fact, he's probably one of the Western Hemisphere's craziest creatures. It is a personal goal to spend an evening out with the rapper -- getting neck tattoos, riding ATVs through North Miami's streets, hell, even checking out some nude booties with him at Coco's. Recently, in an interview with XXL (our sister paper Miami New Times' Crossfade pulled out some glimmering highlights), this local boy got real serious about his former cocaine problem and current experience with cleaner living, which includes sometimes rolling with a lil' lady named molly.

Anyway, big news today is that the clean version of "Real Niggas," his first song released since being signed as a solo artist under Def Jam Records, dropped on the web an hour ago. According to XXL, the dirty version will be out at 3:05 p.m. today.

Check back for an update, and click over for some dirty dirty Gunplay and Ricky Rozay action.
