Cory and Peter have appeared on a handful of reality shows including "Love & Hip Hop: New York" and "Son of a Gun". Peter Gunz appears on Love & Hip Hop due to his business relationship with cast member Rich Dollaz. On Love & Hip Hop, Peter Gunz has not portrayed the most flattering personal appearance. The show follows Peter's up and down relationship with the mother of his children Tara Wallace while also intimating that Peter secretly married a girlfriend named Amina Buddafly. When Tara found out about Peter and Amina's relationship, it caused an understandably high amount of friction. Peter himself has admitted that he was "disgusted" by the actions portrayed on the VH1 reality series. He is now focused on recovering his public image and working to help launch the careers of both his son Cory and new wife Amina. He also claims to be in talks with Lord Tariq about teaming up again for an album.
