Hip Hop Twitter Reacts To Kevin Gates Release From Prison

Fans of New Orleans rapper Kevin Gates are determined to declare, Jan.10, as "Kevin Gates Day".

According to TMZ, the rapper was scheduled to be released from an IL state prison today (Wed, Jan. 10) on parole, and unlike the last time he was scheduled to be released, this time around he was able to successfully walk out of prison with no surprise warrants or re-arrests. The release of Gates is via parole. The entrepreneur's videos later led to a compilation of "I Don't Get Tired" videos.

The 31-year-old from Baton Rouge, Louisiana came to prominence in 2013, and his studio album "Isiah" reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 in 2016.
