7. Kevin Gates – “Posed To Be In Love”
Kevin Gates is thoughtful. That won’t be the image or the language around him at first but he is. “Posed To Be In Love” is structured like a ballad, and like the typical male complaints about a long-gone sweet thang. The difference is it’s much darker, and reels with the voice of a creepy and depressed lover. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta supporting cast member, Erica Pinkett, enacts the role of an abused woman trying to pry herself away. That’s where the familiarity stops though, as it takes an Eminem “Stan” turn by the second verse. That beat and the Gates flow make it a consistent replay knocker.
