    Biography

    Kevin Gilyard (born February 5, 1986), better known by his stage name Kevin Gates, is an American rapper and singer born in New Orleans, Louisiana and moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana right after where he was raised. On February 15, 2013, it was announced that Gates signed to Atlantic Records.

    Kevin Gates first began rapping in 2007, when he began making music with fellow Louisiana natives such as Webbie and Lil Boosie. Gates first received attention with his 2008 single "Get in the Way" featuring Lil Boosie. Soon after, he and Boosie would be incarcerated in separate cases. Gates would then be released in 2011 and immediately returned to recording music. He would soon earn the attention of Lil Wayne and would start being managed by Young Money Entertainment's management wing.

    In early 2013, Gates released a mixtape, The Luca Brasi Story which was called "easily the best rap-related thing" in February 2013 by Spin Magazine, who also said he has "been a rapper to watch for a few years now".

    Gates was named part of the 2014 XXL Freshmen Class.
