Kevin Gates just cleared the air on speculation that he and Youngboy Never Broke Again had fallen out. Before we get into his official response to such claims, it's worth noting what brought us, Kev and Youngboy to this point. 

Months ago, rumors started to swirl that Kevin Gates had sided with Fredo Bang, a Lousiana rapper NBA Youngboy has a longstanding beef with, dating back a few years now. Although completely unfounded, speculation arose because Kevin Gates promoted one of Fredo Bang's projects on social media, but nothing relating directly to NBA Youngboy, with whom he was engaged in a nurturing relationship, or so we thought?

Everything came to a head when Quando Rondo, a buzzing artist signed to NBA Youngboy, lashed out publicly, incidentally calling Kevin Gates a "pussy ass n***a" during an impromptu booking, by which the public jumped to their own conclusions. But Kevin Gates has staked his claim to a positive narrative by declaring NBA Youngboy his brother that "loves to death."

It all went down in an IG Live interview session you can stream below. For the record, Kev is flossing his teeth in the video, so proceed with caution. The NBA-Gates smear campaign has proven yet again, what a valuable weapon "misinformation" can be. "Divide and conquer" as the KGB once said.
