Stream Kevin Gates’ new album, Stranger Than Fiction
July 16th, 2013 in
With his last mixtape, February’s Luca Brasi Story, underground rap sensation Kevin Gates finally broke through to the mainstream, earning himself a record deal with Atlantic and collaborations with hip-hop’s most elite (Pusha T, Juicy J, and Wiz Khalifa, among others). Today, he’s back with his first commercial album, Stranger Than Fiction.
The 18-track effort features contributions from Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Migos, and many more. Still, Gates is best when at it alone. The lead single, “4:30 A.M.”, sees his haggard, world-hardened flow at its most evocative and introspective, spitting rhymes about a litany of injuries (both physical and emotional) that would’ve buried most other MCs.
