“I’m trying to be a living legend, and you want to give me death?” said the Rick Ross-cosigned rapper Gunplay as he stared down a bottle of Blair’s Death Sauce on the set of “Hot Ones,” our ongoing celebrity hot wings challenge.

The animated emcee, who has been open with fans about his brushes with the law and past cocaine addition, proved to us that his unstoppable energy in the booth translates pretty seamlessly to his prowess for crushing habaneros and Scotch bonnets.

“I snort jalapeños,” he proclaimed as he worked his way up the Scoville scale and fielded questions on everything from his relationship with the Bawse, to his passion for fishing and plans to build an apocalypse bunker.

Gunplay’s album, Living Legend (Def Jam), is due to release on July 31. Watch the video above to see how he fared against the likes of 100% Pain and Dave’s Insanity Sauce.
