The whole time we were at SXSW, Julie was touting Kevin Gates as next up. Yet, despite her high praise, I actually hadn’t heard a single song from the Baton Rouge native. Well, after checking this new self-titled barrage of bars, it appears TSS’ resident Trap Queen was right. Soaring though your speakers with a playful, yet aggressive sense of rhyme and the confidence to make you believe his cold-blooded content, “Kevin Gates” finds the recently-signed Atlantic rapper flowing over an extremely active background until the booth burns down and everyone in his way is left looking up.
If you’re like me – intrigued and wanting more from Mr. Gates – I’ve inquired about recommendations and his Luca Brasi tape from February was given in return. Let’s dive in, shall we?
