As the son of platinum-selling rapper Peter Gunz (of Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz), Cory Gunz has quite a legacy to live up to. The younger Gunz has quietly begun to move out of his father’s shadow, however, with recent guest appearances on tracks by Lil’ Wayne and Rihanna. With Cory’s debut album, God Forgives, I Don’t, on the horizon, the time is ripe for a passing of the torch. The LP’s potential lead single, Get Right Tonight, may not be Deja Vu, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction. Featuring a synthy club beat by Ryan Leslie and some layered wordplay by Gunz, the track has enough commercial appeal to potentially blow up. Fans of Lil’ Wayne will either be pleased or pissed of by Gunz’s playful delivery, which sounds suspiciously like Weezy’s.
