Video: Kevin Gates, “Type of Way”


Kevin Gates, the gravelly and battle-scarred Baton Rouge rapper, has recorded his own version of equally hoarse and earnest rapper Rich Homie Quan’s “Type of Way,” Quan’s still-burning breakout hit, which was released as a mixtape reissue bonus track back in February. Above, watch Gates perform the reboot in a studio session. Gates’ album, Stranger Than Fiction, is out now; he’ll support it on a tour of southern clubs in October and November.

    Gates has seriously taken over my playlist for 2013,and i want to thank the good people at Fader for introducing me to him first. He embodies everything I love about a rapper, why havent you guys done something on his for the print magazine yet? He’s such a character and interesting to look at.

    Gates is the “TRUTH” his lyrics are real life day to day situations. I love Kevin Gates. Hes a cool laid back MY #1 haven’t been into a rapper til I heard him. Every mixtape its over 5 hits damn every track is a hit.

    Video is great. I think Gates is really upcoming and should be supported. There should be more artists like that.
