Kevin Jerome Gilyard (born February 5, 1986), better known by his stage name Kevin Gates, is an American rapper, singer, and entrepreneur. He is currently signed to Bread Winners’ Association with a partnership with Atlantic Records. His debut studio album, Islah, released in January 2016 and peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart. Prior to Islah, Gates also released numerous mixtapes including Stranger Than Fiction, By Any Means, and Luca Brasi 2, all of which peaked in the top 40 on the Billboard 200 chart.
He upheld that even when offered a deal with Young Money Entertainment in 2012. Gates respectfully (and famously) passed, having been inspired by Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman’s own story of ‘taking twenty years’ to build a brand. He took it to heart and wholeheartedly pursued his own path. 2013 saw him make waves a few times with The Luca Brasi Story, which Rolling Stone dubbed ‘One of the 20 Best Hip Hop Albums of 2013,’ and an incendiary feature on Pusha T’s ‘Trust You.’ That year, Stranger Than Fiction put Gates on the map once again, boasting cameos by Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J and garnering unanimous praise from Pitchfork, The Fader, Complex, and Spin.
This album is a rush. The chords here remind me of Mustard. Let It Go” is running at a great BPM count for Gates, but I’m not in love with the singing on the hook. He’s pulling out so many tricks Shapeshifting. Technically, this is one of the wilder songs on the project. I’m not entirely gripped, though. I wonder how he found these pockets and melodies. A bit overwhelming, but there’s a lot here worth returning to.

Several months after a photo surfaced of a rapper flashing handfuls of $100 bills inside Elayn Hunt Correctional Center while visiting the facility, rapper Kevin Gates has been banned from all state corrections institutions and two corrections officers have been disciplined.
According to a report The Advocate published on Monday night (Sept. 30), the New Orleans Department of Public Safety and Corrections made the decision to prohibit Gates from entering all state corrections institutions across the state. The decision came after an investigation was launched into Gates’ visit to the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center in July. The rapper was reportedly visiting his father at the time.
Gates is also currently on a tour of the same name. Fans can thankfully see a slim and trim Gates during the touring leg as the rapper has lost a tremendous amount of weight.

Transferring the reflective style of rappers like Drake to the genre of gangsta rap, Louisiana-based MC Kevin Gates spent five-plus years on the mixtape circuit before climbing into the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 with his 2013 release, Stranger Than Fiction. The gruff but lyrical MC narrowly missed the top of the chart in 2016 with his proper debut album, the platinum-certified Islah, and routinely hit the upper reaches of the Billboard 200 with 2016-2018 volumes in his mixtape series Murder for Hire, By Any Means, and Luca Brasi.
Along with bypassing body scanners, both Stagg and Linzy reportedly allowed Gates to drive his car through the front gates without being searched. The DOC investigation also found that Gates skipped out on other procedures that are meant to verify visitors. Despite claiming that he was there to see his father, the investigation shows that Gates had no official family ties with any of the inmates he visited that day.
After releasing two EPs and a mixtape, Gates is back with his sophomore album, I’m Him. The album, just like Islah, is without features. Gates isn’t using his celebrity to attract high profile friends. He’s betting on himself. Based on his prior, double-Platinum success, I wouldn’t bet against him.

The title was re-released with new never-before-heard material to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved recording.
