Throughout his career, Kevin Gates really hasn't experimented much with his look. In recent years, he's changed that up, going blonde for a while before testing out different hair looks. His latest is the most far-out we've seen from the Baton Rouge rapper.

The star rapper recently took a trip to the hairstylist, taking advantage of businesses being re-opened following the first wave of COVID-19. After being stuck without his barber for months, Gates decided to switch things up a touch, using his new long hair to try a different style.

À la Kodak Black (but much less pronounced), Kevin Gates now has braids that are parted in five directions atop his dome. The look resembles that of a schoolgirl on her way to kindergarten, and we mean that in the best possible way.

The last couple of months have been pretty rough for Gates, who suffered a leaked sex tape. The worst part: his wife Dreka Gates was not the woman in the video. They have seemingly stuck together throughout the hardship, tackling this obstacle as a unit and ensuring that their bond is not ruined by the apparent affair.

Still, despite struggling to remain monogamous in his own relationship, Gates has been handing out relationship and dating advice to people on his Vice show.

What do you think of his new look?
