If you haven’t heard of Kevin Gates, you’re simply missing out. Blending trap, R&B, gospel, thug crooning and meticulous beats together into a savory pot of gumbo, the Louisiana spitter has everybody’s ears right now. Though originally courted by Lil Wayne to join Young Money, Gates signed with Atlantic Records last year and kept his movement growing through the release of mixtapes and regional touring.
As his latest mixtape, By Any Means, hits the streets today, Gates liberates another visual off the project, for the song “Arm & Hammer.” Consisting of the standard dope boy imagery, this genius of the video lies in Gates’ energy and motions, as he continues to captivate the streets with his distinct delivery.
