Cory Gunz - Richer Than Richie

The Commencement

Over the last two years, DJBooth has featured several talented artists, who despite their best efforts have never gotten off the ground.  One of the most notable instances is Cory Gunz; son of Lord Tariq‘s rhyme partner, Peter Gunz, and native of hip-hop’s birthplace, the Bronx.  After bouncing from Tommy Mottola‘s Casablanca Records to the Carter Administration’s Def Jam, Gunz is back to work on his long-delayed album, The Commencement, which he hopes to release before the end of the year.  Cory brings an LL-like “don’t call it a comeback” enthusiasm with his new buzz single, Richer Than Richie.  Over a sinister beat from Trackdealaz (complete with sample from Biggie’s Hyponotize), Cory’s rhymes are on point and angry; sounds like his gunz are drawn.
