Multi-platinum recording artist Kevin Gates has announced the release of a lyrical new track, “Grandmotha Grave.”

“Grandmotha Grave” arrives with a standout companion visual that showcases Kevin in a number of desolate areas, delivering passionate lyrics over a rich beat.

Kevin Gates recently released the video for “Still Hold Up,” a dark reflection of the artist’s life experiences, which has now accumulated over 2.3 million views on YouTube.

Gates’ recent string of new music follows last year’s critically acclaimed blockbuster LP,  “I’m Him,” available via Bread Winners Association. The album proved a sensation upon its September 2019 release, arriving at #1 on both Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” and “Digital Albums” charts while also debuting among the top 5 on the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200 – Gates’ fourth top 10 debut thus far.

In addition, Gates recently teamed with VICE to launch 1-800-KEVIN: The Kevin Gates Helpline, an inspirational new web series – co-hosted with lifetime best friend OG Boobie Black – offering advice and positivity to fans for everything that life throws at them. Episode 3 arrived earlier this month, following Episode 2 – entitled “Mystery Smells and Shady Jobs” – which premiered shortly before.

“I’m Him” marked Gates’ first official album release in more than three years, following 2016’s now-classic debut, “Islah.” Despite his legal challenges and incarceration circumstances over the past three years, the Baton Rouge-raised emcee hasn’t stopped delivering heavy-hitting music to his fans.
