Kevin Gates’ Biography
“I’m the drug,” said Kevin Gates, speaking during a recent interview and addressing issues of possible drug use. He was probably not in earnest when he made that statement, but his core fans would say he’s correct – after all, they’re hooked on his music. And his music is him.
Kevin Jerome Gilyard, long famous by the adopted Kevin Gates, is an American rapper and entrepreneur. Born in New Orleans, the champ’s interest in music dates back to when he was pretty young, but it wasn’t until 2007 that he actually stamped his feet out there as a rapper.
Since then, he has put out many numbers, some of which have charted on Billboard. Beyond the music, the songster also has his eyes open, snapping business opportunities as they come. He stands out the most for his music, however.
2005 was a critical year for the songster as it marked the moment he signed a deal with Dead Game Record and got on the pedestal that would propel him to the famous voice he is today. Since then. He’s flirted with and signed with other record labels, further boosting his presence in America’s music universe.
At this point in his career, it is hard to discuss American music without somehow mentioning his name – a testament to how far he has progressed as a musician.
Public records show Kevin Gates has a daughter named Islah Koren Gates and a son, Khaza Kamil Gates – in that order.
Kevin Gates might be a Muslim, but he appears comfortable with having just one wife: Dreka Gates. The couple got married in 2015 and have sired two kids since.
Kevin Gates is infamous for having sexual relationships with his cousin. And while they no longer see each other, they remain good friends, according to him.
The relationship was more of an accident, according to him, speaking in an interview with Yung Miami. He’d already slept with her. And then he’d taken her to his mother, who took him aside and let him know they were cousins. He never knew that before them.
SO, this shouldn’t be much of an issue, especially now that he found out and he’s no longer with the said cousin.
