Multi-Platinum recording artist Kevin Gates recently guest-starred on Charlie Sloth’s Apple Music/Beats 1 Show, “Fire In The Booth” where he dropped an insane freestyle, “Always Be Gangsta.”

“Always Be Gangsta” arrives on the heels of one of his most personal and special tracks yet. Gates wears his heart on his sleeve on the romantic track “Dreka,” named for his wife, manager, business partner and mother of his two children – affectionately known as #bossmaynedrek.

 “Dreka” follows Gates’ critically acclaimed “I’m Him” which arrived last year. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Album Sales chart and at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart, giving Gates his fourth top 10 album.

In related news: The Kevin & Dreka Gates Foundation – founded by the dynamic duo– partnered with The Crystal Campaign, a global movement of healing with the mission to make mental health as common and important of a conversation as physical health. Gates, who has always shared his struggle with mental health through his raw and emotional lyrics, has announced a “Walls Talking” inspired merch line that will raise funds for the Kevin & Dreka Gates Foundation which seeks to raise awareness and advocate for policy changes that support the mental health of formerly incarcerated people.
