New Kevin Gates is officially here. Today (May 16), the Baton Rouge, La. artist unleashes his Chained to the City project, a short, but sweet effort that marks the rapper’s first new release since getting out of prison on January 10.
Checking in at just three tracks, the project is essentially an EP, and as such, it gives fans exactly what they want while giving a tantalizing glimpse of what else Gates could have in store. It arrives five days after Gates uploaded an Instagram post with the hashtag, “#ChainedToTheCity.” He also uploaded some family videos, the captions for included some lamentations about the things he’s missed while dealing with his current legal ordeal.
“Miss 4 birthdays – 2 graduations but I never complained – fuck it #imHim,” he wrote in the caption for one video. Gates previewed some new songs through his Instagram account on Sunday (May 13). Now, the new music is here.
