Grammy Pro SXSW Interview w/ Kevin Gates

Rapper Kevin Gates dropped his first mixtape in 2006 and has been loudly gaining momentum in his native Baton Rouge, La. ever since. His cult-like following has grown to such a level that Islah, his debut album for Atlantic Records, reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200 album chart — stepping over Adele’s 24 in the process. Gates took a moment at SXSW to talk with GRAMMY Pro about his debut album, Islah, the reason he doesn’t distinguish between a mixtape and an album, and his constant evolution.
