1990’s Hip-Hop icon and L&HH reality TV show star Peter Gunz sat down with DJ Vlad.   In an interview discussing everything from his past life in the streets to lingering effects of Chi Ali’s murder case, the hardest hitters were about health.  Gunz shared devastating statistics of what can happen to people that end up serving time on Rikers’ Island in new York City.

“There’s a 30% chance you gonna get cut on Riker’s Island. That’s the statistic” says Peter.

He continued, “There’s more HIV cases on the Riker’s island than the whole New York City”
