Kevin Gates, born Kevin Jerome Gilyard in 1986 in New Orleans, is a rapper and hip hop artist from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He began recording in studios in 2004, initially working with other local Louisiana hip artists, including Webbie and Lil Boosie. “Get in the Way” with Lil Boosie was his first single to receive airplay but his growing career stalled due to his incarceration the following year. He immediately resumed recording upon his release in 2011.
Lil Wayne mentored Gates and Lil Wayne’s label Young Money Entertainment managed the rapper until he signed with Atlantic Records in 2013. Southern hip hop and rap artists and labels, such as Master P and Cash Money Records, have influenced Gates’ music. Gates’ albums include his 2013 street album “Stranger Than Fiction” and 2014 street album “By Any Means.” He released “Kno One,” the lead single for his first Atlantic Records album, in 2015.Learn more about Art & Literature
