In early 2013, Kevin Gates released the mixtape, The Luca Brasi Story, via his Bread Winners’ Association record label. The mixtape received critical praise with Pitchfork saying it, “imbues trap’s claustrophobic bleakness with an emotional nakedness, capable lyricism, and melodic certitude many of its recent breakout stars have lacked.” Rolling Stone named the mixtape’s single, “Wylin’ “, the 40th best song of 2013. On the heels of the success of that mixtape, Gates was signed to Atlantic Records. He released his first major label mixtape, Stranger Than Fiction, in July 2013. The mixtape also received favorable reviews despite generally being shorter than Gates had originally hoped. Stranger Than Fiction also marked the first time one of Gates’ mixtapes charted on the Billboard 200, peaking at number 37.
In early March 2014, he again focused on music and, in particular, his new mixtape project, By Any Means. The mixtape was released on March 18, 2014. The mixtape featured guest appearances from artists including 2 Chainz, Plies, and Rico Love. The mixtape also made it to the Billboard 200, peaking at number 17.
In May 2014, Gates was named a member of XXL’s Freshman Class. He also announced the By Any Means Tour, which would run from July 15 to August 30, 2014 and feature Chevy Woods. In August 2014, Gates announced the creation of a new energy drink called “I Don’t Get Tired” or “#IDGT.” The drink is based on Gates’ 2014 single of the same name that also featured August Alsina.
On May 31, 2019, Gates released his second EP, titled Only the Generals Gon Understand.
On June 28, 2019, Gates released “Push It”, along with the music video. The song served as the lead single from his second album I’m Him.
On February 19, 2021, Gates returned with his first project since 2019 – his 17th mixtape, Only the Generals, Pt. II. Surprise-released, the project is the sequel to Gates’ 2019 EP Only the Generals Gon Understand. The mixtape was recorded earlier in 2021 in Puerto Rico, with Gates explaining that this was done to celebrate his family heritage on the island. It contains the previously released single, “Plug Daughter 2”, which was produced by Internet Money’s Taz Taylor. The mixtape was accompanied with the release of a music video for the song, “Puerto Rico Luv”, which reflects his appreciation for his heritage, along with the song “Cartel Swag”. Gates has previously teased his third studio album, Khaza.
Gates married his longtime girlfriend, Dreka Haynes, in October 2015. The couple have two children, Islah and Khaza. Gates hinted that he had children by other women in a 2013 interview with Complex.
Kevin Gates is also known for his various hit songs such as Really Really, 2 Phones, I Don’t Get Tired, Time For That, Out The Mud, Imagine That, Perfect Imperfection, Find You Again and his Luca Brasi albums.
