Kevin Gates pulls a Beyonce with Murder for Hire, his newest EP. Gates, without a release date, drops his newest project Murder for Hire just like that. The 7-track EP is available for stream after the jump. Get at it.
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.)
Furious 7 will hit theaters April 3rd and they’re wasting no time dropping heat after heat after heat from the film’s soundtrack. We’ve already gotten Kid Ink, Wale, Tyga, YG and Rich Homie Quan on “Ride Out” followed by T.I. and Young Thug on “Off-Set.” And now with the third installment we’re getting Juicy J, Kevin Gates, Future and Sage The Gemini on “Payback.” Listen after the jump.
Kevin Gates doesn’t get tired, which is why he’s always dropping off new music. Produced by Millz and Zar, “The Law” is a track in which Gates addresses a slew of rumors, his haters, and the meaning behind the word loyalty, a word Gates apparently takes very seriously. Listen to “The Law” after the jump!
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.
After delivering a very solid mixtape in By Any Means earlier this year, Kevin Gates caught the attention of many for being the guy who told everyone to eat booty. Yep. It’s sad, considering Gates is one of the better underground rappers out. And on his new track “Reasonable Suspicion”, producer Guss flips the contemplative piano sample that producer Ski Beatz used on Jay Z’s Reasonable Doubt classic “Dead Presidents.” Listen after the jump.
Kevin Gates is having himself quite the successful 2014 thus far. Firstly, the Louisiana rapper was named one of the twelve rappers on XXL’s Freshmen Class. In addition Gates’ By Any Means project was well received and spawned many successful street singles. Now we bring you “She Don’t Wanna”, a remastered version of the original. It’s dope. Listen after the jump.
The Game is currently prepping Blood Money: Year of the Wolf, the follow-up to his 2012 album Jesus Piece. And he has just unleashed the latest single “Black on Black” featuring Jeezy and Kevin Gates. That’s the album’s art above. Listen to the track after the jump.
Listen to Kevin Gates and Starlito remake the MikeWillMadeIt track “Sh*t.” You cannot be soft around these guys. They smell it and use it to make songs that disintegrate your weakness in front of your enemy. Track after the jump.
What makes a summer song? It’s sweaty but never sad about it. The right summer smash makes you put the double-decker barbecue plate on your lawn chair, pour out something cool and get close to the speakers. It’s naked and unashamed, of course. The song’s gotta be loud. Not volume-wise either. You need to be able to open that sunroof, lower the windows on the highway and still annoy passersby with the bass drop. They’re great songs because they’re disposable songs. A summer jam is the wet wipe of music: refreshing as it is fleeting and oh so useful at the right time.
Load these songs into your playlist and be the DJ you always wanted for the weekend.
