Kevin Gates’ grind anthem “I Don’t Get Tired” is getting an official remix. The original is from his terrific and criminally underrated Luca Brasi 2 mixtape but hopefully this new remix will give that project some new life. Check out Gates’ “I Don’t Get Tired” remix after the jump.

Oh boy, Kevin Gates is at it again. The Baton Rogue rapper, who has released a solid amount of quality hip-hop music, is perhaps (and sadly) best known for generating controversy via posting outrageous photos and videos on his personal Instagram account (which you may view here, if you’d like.) And it looks like his latest post is no different.

Recently Gates, who was raised by his grandmother, wanted to share a photo of her as she lay on her deathbed. In the Instagram post Gates’ hand is covering his grandmother’s mouth. “Viewing the body of the woman I called my mama before my show, I’m a miss you I love you forever R.I.P.,” he wrote as the caption.

As you can imagine the photo has left many fans stunned and speechless. But that hasn’t stopped them from chiming in and commenting, leaving their thoughts on his page. Some of his fans have even gone as far as accusing Gates of trying to show off his huge watch, while others felt that it was inappropriate to show his deceased grandmother on Instagram. One Instagram user wrote, “This isn’t appropriate for Instagram. Visiting her body is personal and should be private, not used to get attention. RIP.”

But Gates quickly retorted, posting a video explaining why he posted the photo and the specifics behind why he has his hand covering her mouth. Apparently, the rapper was hiding her broken jaw, which she suffered when they put her in a body bag.

If you’d like, you may view the photo after the jump (we do warn you, it may be a little shocking, so view at your own discretion.)

Comparatively the Kevin Gates we see on the cover of Luca Brasi 2 is a different man from the one we first became acquainted with on the cover of The Luca Brasi Story in early 2013. And that’s fair because Gates has had himself a productive year; signing to Atlantic Records, releasing two critically-acclaimed mixtapes, and even becoming a father for the second time. But on his latest offering from the forthcoming Luca Brasi 2, “Thugged Out,” Kevin Gates is in his usual fatalist, dope boy mode. Peep “Thugged Out” after the jump and be on the lookout for Kevin Gates’ Gangsta Grillz hosted Luca Brasi 2 dropping December 15th.
