As an artist, you’ve got to know yourself and your own vision first and foremost. Kevin Gates certainly does. The Baton Rouge-based rapper doesn’t pull any punches, and his honesty fuels everything he does. Rap felt like destiny for him from a very young age. In a house with stacks of records and CDs, he became engaged by the likes of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and The Notorious B.I.G. as a child. Watching music videos religiously, the burgeoning MC would then perform for his aunts and uncles during family gatherings. “I’d emulate what I saw on TV,” he recalls. “I’d pretend like I was a rapper for my family. I just knew that this is what I was meant to do. I never questioned it. I felt that for as long as I can remember.”

In 2004, Kevin Gates entered a local studio for the very first time and started professionally recording. Three years later, he dropped his breakout debut mixtape, Pick Of Da Litter. As he passed out thousands of CDs around the area, his buzz started to spread like wildfire and he began playing multiple shows per week. Shortly after, he unleashed the 2008 hit “Get in the Way” featuring Lil Boosie, developing a devout national following in the process. However, in the aftermath of the track’s success, Gates faced incarceration until 2011. “When I got out, my fan base had strangely grown,” Kevin Gates admits. “It was so crazy to me. Once I came home, I knew that I had to just focus on the music. I practically never left the studio after that. It was all about recording and making more songs.”
