Derez De'Shon Feat. Kevin Gates
Kevin Gates just dropped his official debut album, Islah, last Friday, and its already shaping up to be a big seller. The Baton Rouge star hasn't slowed his output in the meantime, linking up with Derez De'Shon on his new track, "Emotionz" today. According to De'Shon, he met Gates in Atlanta, when he revealed that he was a big fan of Derez, suggesting that he was listening to nothing but him and Starlito at the time.
Time For That
For fans, there were a lot of questions surrounding the release of Kevin Gates' Islah, which dropped today. Would the album feature more of the morbid violence of the Luca Brasi saga, or would it find Gates exploring his pop-friendlier side, as heard on the lead single, "Kno One." The answer leans more toward the latter, but that's not to say there's any compromise whatsoever.
Kevin Gates Feat. Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign & Jamie Foxx
After numerous delays, Kevin Gates's album Islah will hit the digital streets on January 29th. Before that arrives a bonus track from the album has leaked: "Jam," featuring Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign and Jamie Foxx. With its sultry acoustic guitar riffs, "Jam" more closely resembles peak mid-'00s Usher than any of the tracks Gates has put out as of late. With Trigga Trey, Ty$, & Foxx setting the mood, Gates describes his sexual exploits in graphic detail. Hint: booty is involved.
All I Ever Wanted
BWA Ron Feat. Kevin Gates & Zuse
Kevin Gates is set to hit Europe later this week for a brief tour before he (finally) drops Islah on January 29. Before he takes flight across the Atlantic, he joins forces with his official DJ BWA Ron and Jamaica-Atlantan artist Zuse for a fresh banger called "All I Ever Wanted." The track will appear on Ron's upcoming compilation mixtape #FuckYoDJ. Gates straight up murders the first verse, a tough act to follow for young Zuse.
T-Rell Feat. Kevin Gates
T-Rell is coming into 2016 strong with his new release “Paid” featuring the prolific Kevin Gates. It follows up another big name feature on this last song with Boosie Badazz.
Wiz Khalifa Feat. Kevin Gates
Yesterday Wiz Khalifa appeased fans with a quick rollout of Cabin Fever 3. The mixtape isn't lacking in features or notable producers, with Curren$y, King Los, 2 Chainz, Juicy J, K Camp, Yo Gotti and more making their appearance through out the 11 records. One of the more surprising, but really dope, collaborations came in the form of the Sonny Digital-produced "Move On." Wiz creates a melodic, catchy hook over Sonny's plucking production, littered with string sounds and bursts of bass. Gates provides his usual no-fucks-given raps.
Even though were still months away, Kevin Gates continues to roll out new music in support of his upcoming album Islah, which is named after his daughter. Earlier this month, he dropped off the single “Really Really,” and now tonight he’s back with another offering from the project titled “2 Phones.”
Kevin Gates debut album, Islah, is one of our most anticipated releases for the rest of 2015. Most of his past mixtapes have been album quality, so we can't wait to see what he's got in store for the album. He's just dropped the album's latest single, "Really Really," which follows the recent releases "Tattoo Session" and "The Truth."
While She Talkin' (Remix)
BreadWinner Kane Feat. Kevin Gates
Kevin Gates is steadily building his own Breadwinners crew and label, and it's about time we meet one of its rising stars, who happens to be Kevin's brother -- the name: BreadWinner Kane. Kane is also affiliated with Zaytoven's new imprint, Zaytown, and he's gotten Zay to produce his new track, "While She Talkin'." Now, you can hear both Gates bros together on the "While She Talkin'" remix.
Kevin Gates is currently prepping a new album, named after his child, Islah. The album is still a minute away, it's only dropping on December 11th. Giving fans such a far away release date has become an increasingly-rare roll out method, we'll have to see how it works for Gates.
Propain Feat. Kevin Gates
Propain is quickly making a name for himself out of Houston. He's been vetted by the OGs -- you may have heard him with Slim Thug on "All I Know" or, more recently, with Paul Wall on "Hold It Diine for My City," off Wall's new album Slab God.
Stitches Feat. Kevin Gates
So you know Stitches, the guy who just released an insane, X-rated Tyga diss track, on which he claims to have smashed Kylie Jenner behind T-rawww's back?
To The Money
Hurricane Chris Feat. Kevin Gates
If you hadn't heard, Hurricane Chris is back with a brand new tape, and it's among his finest work. You're only memory of Chris might be 2007's "Ay Bay Bay," so this new track with Kevin Gates should signal that Chris is still a serious force in the Louisiana rap game. "To the Money," taken off Hurricane Season, comes equipped with fresh production from one of the South's finest, Drumma Boy.
Grind For It
Khaotic Feat. Kevin Gates
We introduced you to rising rapper Khaotic by way of his "Dime Piece" single. The Miami-bred rapper is making noise locally, and looking to extend that reach, he enlisted Ricky Rozay for the remix of "Dime Piece." Today we have the premiere of a new collaboration, which find Khaotic connecting with ever-controversial Kevin Gates. This is the type of beat Gates kills, and Khaotic's auto-tune-dripping hook will increase the replay value here.
I Feel Like
Twista Feat. Kevin Gates
Twista is putting all these rappers with weekly freestyles in their place by dropping roughly a freestyle per day for the past week. He raps fast, maybe he writes fast too?
Kevin Gates is touring for the second leg of his #IDGT tour, and, keeping his tagline alive, he's been consistently dropping new music while on the road.
Sino Feat. Kevin Gates
Detroit's own Sino is making major inroads into this thing they call the rap game. Just a couple months ago he was a winner of HNHH's weekly Heatseekers video contest for "Slappin," now HNHH premieres his new single "Young Nigga" feat. Kevin Gates, produced by the Honorable C Note.
In the past year or so, Kevin Gates has formed a reputation based mostly on two things: his ferocious, tireless rapping and his crude social media presence, which has sometimes even veered into incest and beastiality.
Rico Love Feat. Kevin Gates, Trick Daddy & Trina
Rico Love's I Sin free album from last August was on point, but apparently the NOLA crooner wasn't satisfied yet because he just renovated "Coldest," one of the project's better tracks, with verses from Kevin Gates, Trick Daddy, and Trina. It's a Dirty South smorgasbord as each rappers something a little different to the table.
