Cory Gunz from "Son of a Gun" stars in the MTV reality docu-series.

By traditional standards, with no major label debut, Cory Gunz would be considered a newcomer but that is hardly the case. Raised in the Bronx by his father, Peter Gunz, a rapper whose resume includes the 90's hit-single "Deja vu (Uptown Baby)" with Lord Tariq, Corey has been around music his entire life and signed his first record deal with Casablanca Records when he was just 16 years old. Casablanca released Cory from his agreement to sign with iconic Def Jam Recordings (after being recruited by then president JAY-Z) but unfortunately having been denied a release date Cory went on to sign with independent label After Platinum.

After so many false starts most people would have given up and found another career but luckily for music fans that wasn't an option for Cory. Despite lack of label support for his music Cory kept his name relevant with a continuous stream of songs, freestyles, mix tapes and DVD appearances. It was that work ethic that recently landed him a new record deal with Young Money Entertainment. With a star turn on "6'7'," Lil' Wayne's first single since being released from prison, the time is now for the spotlight to shine on Cory Gunz.
