Young Money Rapper Cory Gunz Released from Police Custody After Gun Arrest

30 Jan

On Sunday (January 29) MTV News spoke with veteran Bronx rapper Peter Gunz, who confirmed that his son Cory Gunz was in custody, after being arrested with a loaded firearm. The 24-year-old rapper was taken into custody by New York City Police around 2p.m. on Saturday in his hometown, Bronx, New York where he is now being held. “It was definitely an illegal search,” Peter revealed.

Gunz junior was brought to the 43rd Precinct in the Bronx on Saturday, but officials there say he has since been transported to Central Booking, on E. 161st Street in the Bronx. He was released around midnight on Sunday…

He (@coreygunz) tweeted  his fans shortly after his release:

His father, rapper Peter Gunz was unable to disclose full details on the incident just yet, but he explained the events leading up to his son’s arrest. “I spoke to the arresting officer, and so far, what I’m hearing from him is that they got a phone call at the station saying they should ‘look out,’ ” Gunz said. “According to [the officer], they didn’t know he was Cory Gunz. They just saw a bunch of kids following him around.

While this is Cory Gunz’s first brush with the law, his father is still worried about the potential fallout from a firearm charge. “At the end of the day, there’s a reason for everything, but at the same time, in New York, it’s mandatory jail time,” he said. “To go to a precinct and see your son, your junior, in handcuffs, it’s heartbreaking. Anytime you see your child in jail, in the cell, in handcuffs, it’s very hard. He’s walked down some of the same paths that I walked down, but you never want to see your kids go through what you went through.

“This is Cory’s first offense, but sometimes they like to make an example out of rappers and people with any kind of celebrity to them.”

The younger Gunz is signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money label.
