When last we heard from the furious Baton Rouge rapper Kevin Gates he was attempting to justify, through song, kicking a female fan in the chest. So when Gates puts out a new song called “Tattoo Session,” and its cover art his him getting his signature hashtag tattooed on his face, that qualifies as a relatively low-key move. Honestly, I feel pretty weird about posting new Gates music after that viral kick, but this guy can rap, and the song is thrilling. Listen below.
Gates’ new album Islah is out 12/11 on Bread Winners’ Association.
