Some of us have been waiting for Rapper Kevin Gates to be released from jail, but no one expected for things to take place like they did.
Gates was set to be released from Florida’s Polk County Jail after doing six months for kicking a female concert attendant in the chest during a Florida show in August of 2015. He was charged with battery, but was actually convicted in October of 2016. A lot of us “saved the date” on our calendars waiting for the B.W.A. aka Mr. I Don’t Get Tired rapper to be released so he can come and give us that good music. But….
Upon his departure yesterday morning, Gates was re-arrested due to Illinois felony gun charges. He’s currently awaiting a court hearing. Gates is being held at Florida’s Polk County Jail, but will soon be extradited to Illinois Cook County.
His wife, Dreka Gates, posted a heartfelt response to her Instagram. Check it out below:
” @iamkevingates #bepositive #positivevibes #positiveenergy By the way, I’m good, a little heartbroken but I’m a fighter and it’s only a matter of time before this is all over. “
