Representing the Militia and YMCMB to the fullest the BX’s own Cory Gunz is back after a small hiatus with a brand new drop. With nationwide summertime performances on deck with The Reloaded Tour, Cory is re-introducing himself to listeners and working on pushing his name to the next level. The multi-talented emcee steps it up on this seventeen track release of all new material.
Here are the SOHH.com 5 Reasons to download “That’s WTF I’m Talkin Bout”
1. BX Bomber
As the son of Bronx, NY emcee Peter Gunz, Cory was raised in the realm and center of Hip Hop culture. He is a gifted wordsmith and has a lot of versatility with his flows. Unfortunately in early 2012 Cory got caught up in a little legal trouble which slowed down his moves a bit, but now he has returned with a vengeance and sounds rejuvenated and hungry throughout this drop. Gunz can hold his own and absolutely finishes the track “Kan’t See Me” featuring Busta Rhymes. Going toe to toe with an accomplished vet like Bus could be intimating for some but Cory really shines on the Rikinatti produced track. Cory shows and proves. At this point, he holds more than enough talent in the bank to take his career to higher heights.
2. YMCMB Emcee
Gunz is the lyrical beast of YMCMB. His label-mates Drake and Nicki Minaj have experienced huge success on the mainstream front. Based on this mixtape it is clear that Cory isn’t trying to dumb down his flow or emulate any of the artists on the Young Money/Cash Money team. When Lil’ Wayne signed Cory Gunz he made a groundbreaking appearance on “6 Foot 7 Foot” which was featured on Tunechi’s “Carter 4” album. The Bronx born emcee has bars for days and on this mixtape he leaves no stone un-turned bringing his fans directly into his zone.
3. Real Rap
On the introspective track “I Try” featuring Sean Hayz, Cory keeps it one hundred about growing up and maturing through real life situations. This song is deep and gives some insight of the changes Cory is trying to make to better his life and the ones around him. He also speaks on the relationship with his father.
“Me and my Pops was Starsky and Hutch/
I don’t know what I did/
But I know now he don’t talk to me much/
He wonder why I be sparking it up/
Fearing I’ll kill my inspiration
Like I can’t record with a dutch/
Now we talking in text?
F*ck is this? I thought we was us/
Where you at to support me – my crutch – Cory Gunz/
It’s not often emcees show that type of vulnerability, but this song really hits home. Joints like this show heart. Ill song.
Prior to “That’s WTF I’m Talkin Bout” being dropped, Cory had to remind cats why he is regarded as one of the top of the class for the new school generation. His “Levels” freestyle which came out last week picked up a lot of buzz and increased anticipation for this new tape. Having experienced so much since entering the industry at a young age it’s definitely his time to see big success. From his earlier record deal signings and his MTV show “Son Of a Gun” we have witnessed the grind it takes to be successful in the industry. Gunz has publicly went through his difficulties and is turning things into a positive direction with this breakthrough mixtape release.

Other features include former Coke Boy Charlie Rock who is on two tracks. Mack Maine, Wiz Khalifa, Sean Hayz, HASH and Juicy J all come thru on this drop as well.
