Kevin Gates is not only one of our favorite rappers, but one of the biggest rappers in the South right now.
Earlier this year, he dropped a collection of leftovers called By Any Means, but you might know him for dumber sh*t like eating booty or “beefing” with Young Thug. Truthfully, his emotional depth is unmatched, his technical skill is dazzling, and his sense of melody, matched with his storytelling abilities, makes him unparalleled right now. He’s the complete package.
As we wait for Luca Brasi 2, Gates gifts us with a brand new song called “Reasonable Suspicion” that finds him murdering the original sample for Jigga’s “Dead Presidents II.” You can’t skip a single lines from Gates, as he talks about the strained relationship with his father, friends in prison, and much more. But forget the subject matter for a second – listen to this dude’s cadence. No one is touching him right now.
Hear the thorough new joint above, and don’t look stupid sleeping on Gates.
