Happy Birthday Kevin Gates! This now 28-year-old artist out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana has definitely made quite a name for himself over the past few years. He was a XXL Freshmen Class member for 2014 and he’s signed to Atlantic Records. Despite his troubles with the law over the years, he has been steadily putting out credible street music that not only appeals to his core fan base, but is reaching out to the masses as well. Gates isn’t afraid to speak his mind or show emotions either. What makes him such a great artist is how open and honest he is through his music. So, in honor of his birthday celebration, here are five songs by KG that you should already know and love; and if you’re not yet a fan, you will be!
