Kevin Gates Sources His Street Cred In The Chest-Beating ‘Intro’ Video

Kevin Gates is back. The Baton Rouge General sources his street cred in the video for “Intro,” his third official single of 2022. While he’s peppered the first half of the year with freestyles like “Super General,” “Who Want Smoke?” and “Talking To My Scale,” he’s been slow-rolling the release of his upcoming third studio album Khaza, due June 17 on Atlantic. He kicked off the promotion cycle in April with the release of “Big Lyfe,” then continued with “Bad For Me” last month.

In addition to dropping Khaza next week, Gates is gearing up for his Big Lyfe Tour, starting in August and running through October. You can see the full tour dates below.
