Kevin grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA. As a youngster he had legal problems and spent some time in prison. Later, he suffered from depression and subsequently chose music as a therapy to heal the disease. He enjoyed listening Dr. Dre, Notorious B.I.G., Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Snoop Dogg and other rappers, all of whom helped him tobecome more positive in his life. Later, he began singing himself, and in 2007 he debuted in the industry with his first mixtape “Pick Of Da Litter” (2007). Later, it was followed by other ones as “All or Nuthin” (2008), “All In” (2009), “Behind Enemy Lines” (2010), “The Leak” (2010), “I Don’t Know What to Call It Vol. 1” (2011), “Make ’em Believe (2012)” and “In the Mean Time” (2012). In 2013, the first single “Satellites” (2013) was released which was later inducted into the first studio album “Stranger than Fiction” (2013). Even though the first single failed to appear on the music charts, the first album managed to reach 7th position on Rap, 11th on R&B, and 37th on the main music chart. In addition to this, a mixtape “The Luca Brasi Story” (2013) was released the same year. Regardless, all these projects helped Kevin Gates’ net worth to increase.
2014 was more productive for the rapper, as Kevin Gates released four singles: “Don’t Know”, “Posed To Be In Love”, “Amnesia” and “I Don’t Get Tired”. Only the last one appeared on the music charts, though the positions weren’t high. Fortunately, his two albums “By Any Means” and “Luca Brasi 2 were more successful, as the former appeared on the 3rd position of Rap, 5th of R&B and 17th of the main music chart in USA, and “Luca Brasi 2” was very close and took 3rd position of Rap, 5th of R&B and 38th of the main music chart. As a result, all those recordings added much to Gates net worth.
What is more, during his entire career, Kevin has collaborated with many artists, among whom are Dumaine, Max Minelli, 9th Ward Earnka, JT The Bigga Figga, French Montana, 1 Shot Dealz, DJ Kayslay and others.
Finally, his personal life is rather strange. In 2006, Kevin Gates started a relationship with a woman who he found out later was his cousin (his grandmother told him that). He had never met the girl before their relationship, however, they were dating two years after they sorted out they were relatives. Then they split up because of constant disagreements. Currently, Kevin states that he is single.
