Cory Gunz Shows That Funky Flows Thrive In Any Style & Era (Video)
27-year-old Cory Gunz may still be a relative newcomer, but the Bronx, New York rapper is no stranger to those who came before him. As the son of Peter Gunz (best known for his 1997 single “Déjà Vu (Uptown Baby)” with Lord Tariq), there is little doubt that his upbringing exposed him to Hip-Hop of previous generations. The junior Gunz has been releasing mixtapes for a decade, and more recent work on tracks like Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot” and his 2013 Datz WTF I’m Talkin Bout mixtape (featuring Busta Rhymes, Wiz Khalifa, and Juicy J) showcase his embracing of the old and new.
The YMCMB artist has reportedly been working on two EPs, one titled Gunzilla and the other Kriminal Minded, although neither have been assigned official release dates. In anticipation of those projects, he just released the official music video to “Make It Funky,” a Money Mark-directed joint replete with an unabashedly direct James Brown flip and a visual homage to Eazy-E. With no hook, the track showcases his lyrical abilities without much regalia.
