Kevin Gates exposes his inner mafioso on "John Gotti."

In the past, Southern spitter Kevin Gates has likened himself to Luca Brasi, Don Corleone's notorious bodyguard in the Godfather series. Today he returns toting a new mafia reference: John Gotti. The NYC mob boss, always a favorite among rappers, has recently popped up in Young Thug lyrics ("Whippin' up the dope I feel like John Gotti!"), and now is given an entire song by Gates, who outfits the Teflon Don with his face tats on the cover.

Gates' beyond-croaky voice at the beginning of this track may leave wanting to clear your throat, but fear not, he soon drops that delivery in favor of a more energized one. In retrospect, intro'ing the track like that provides some nice variety.

Y'all feeling this one?

Quotable Lyrics:

Praise to Allah, I was born a God, with the murder game I'm righteous
Cancel shows just for razor wet, and I don't know another just like it
I love Bunker, but despite the love, I don't know what made him dislike it
But me and Gunner in the Porsche truck and we screechin' off like lightning
