Kevin Gates' 2014 hit "I Don't Get Tired" might be the best-ever song about an energy drink. But despite its title, there were moments in the track when the Baton Rouge rapper paused to catch his breath, namely the parts when August Alsina was singing. Today, he solves that conundrum by releasing a new remix, complete with new bars and no hook. He's really walking the walk on this one.
The beat's changed up ever so slightly, but the real attraction on this new version are Gates' new lyrics and flows. He's one of the most chameleonic rappers working, and here, he gets five minutes to explore a wide variety of flows and deliveries.
Better than the first or nah?
Me and woadie, he from Detroit
We were sellers in Chicago
Bond revoked on a violation?
Back to jail in Chicago
Transited back to Baton Rouge
Had an active warrant and parole-hold
