Discussion | Kevin Gates
Since being released from prison, Kevin Gates got right back to the music with some single releases here and there since he’s been free. None of those songs really stuck out to me to so I approached the release of his new mixtape, Luca Brasi 3, with not the highest of expectations. This was the lead off song from the mixtape so naturally it was what I heard first and was intrigued to hear more. Unfortunately I was unable to avoid some general critiques of the tape which was all positive, so because of my low expectations, I was on the fence on whether this would actually be to my liking. After hearing this track, then a couple more, I was looking forward to hearing the rest. This track gives us some insight on some of the thoughts Kevin was having surrounding his assault case that he was locked up for and why he took the deal he was offered. Though there are many thoughts of his that I don’t agree with, I can always recognize good music and it looks like that time away allowed him to give us some.
