Baton Rouge rapper Kevin Gates has officially signed major. He has signed with Atlantic Records. Gates Dead Game Records and Bread Winners Association have been grinding dropping mixtape after mixtape. It was once rumored that Gates had signed with Lil Wayne's Young Money imprint. I knew it would not be long before he went national though he has been appearing a lot. He was recently heard on collaborations with Young Money artist Lil Chuckee and G.O.O.D music artist Pusha T. Some said that Gates style and sound wouldn't be felt nationally but obvious it is.
Gates dropped his latest project "The Luca Brasi Story" and it is said this is what sold Atlantic on Kevin Gates. With songs like "Weight", "Arms of a Stranger", and "Ihop", how could a major ignore the buzz on this project? All his projects could have sent him over the top in my opinion but hey you know the game. Check out Kevin Gates discography of mixtapes and see what the majors saw. Kevin Gates been Retawdid with the music, I know he got a name for it I don't know what to call it. Congratulations Gates, put on for Louisiana like you been doing. #SWBY
