Kevin Gates comes off as a rapper whose life story & messages within his music contributes to the phrase many emcees within the culture use, “it’s deeper than rap”.
I bet there’s a lot we could learn from & about Louisiana’s own. The FADER recently connected with Gates for the latest installment of their Everything You Need To Know About series, & we DEFINITELY learn some interesting things:
#1. He legit is some kind of god. At least according to the people he surrounds himself with that tell him so
#2. He has a rather large… foot (we’ll leave it there on that one, folks. Pretty self-explanatory)
#3. He legit just doesn’t get tired (see, it’s deeper than rap) & his favorite bar spot in NYC is “Vampire Bars”, which he regulars at about 3-4am, most times
#4. The kid is an avid reader & LOVES visiting Barnes & Nobles when he goes city to city. Call him a Barnes & Nobles connoisseur (haha).
#5. He’s kinda sorta a hippie. He’d rather be outside lighting that spliff than inside on the couch doing so.
Shoutout to Fader for this series. This one was pretty entertaining.
