Gates goes after Thug for not returning his phone calls.
It seems that hip-hop has moved on from Twitter beefs to the much more visual world of Instagram. Taking to his personal IG account, New Orleans-born emcee Kevin Gates released a video calling out Young Thug for answering his calls, prompting Thugger to come back and challenge Gates to "pull up" and accept the fade.
Gates removed his video shortly after posting. Fortunately, DDotOmen managed to recover the recording. Check out both videos below.
Gates' diss comes on the heels of Young Thug calling Birdman his "lover" on Instagram. For more on that story, click here. At this point, Thug has not directly addressed rumors of his sexual orientation.

[Update: Gates did not call Thug "gay"]
In a case of misunderstanding , it turns out that Gates did not call Young Thug "gay," but rather said, "Damn bruh, don’t pick up the phone when Gates call. Damn what, a nigga told you somethin about me? C’mon mane keep it real. Just tell me, 'Man, Gates I ain’t rockin like that man.' I won’t dick pull.”
Regardless of what Gates said, Thug used his video to address the rumors around his sexuality while referencing Gate’s “#IDGT (I Don’t Get Tired)” single. “Hey man, I don’t get tired of these children sayin’ ‘Gay,’ I don’t get tired of f—in’ these bitches, drinkin’ this motherf–kin’ Act,” he said.
