Just as Kevin Gates kicked off “The Big Lyfe” tour, the RIAA multi-platinum rapper released his latest single “Major League” via Bread Winner Alumni/Atlantic Records. “Major League” comes on the heels of his third studio album, released in June, titled “Khaza.” The brash production on the record brings an aggressive form of Gates out as he details the stripes he’s earned in the streets. The track is also a follow up to visuals for “Bad For Me,” “Intro,” and “Super General (Freestyle).” The latter at over 30 million streams on YouTube.

“Khaza,” the 19-track album released earlier this year, includes the acclaimed songs, “Intro,” “Bad For Me” and “Big Lyfe.” Named after his son Khaza, the body of work was birthed from Kevin’s innate parental instinct to give Khaza free game he’s picked up over the years in addition to the critical importance of paying forward all the advice he’s received, and the tough lessons learned so that Khaza can be an even grander man than him.
