Kevin Gates Has Been Released From Jail

Kevin Gates Has Been Released From Jail

Kevin Gilyard-who goes by the stage name Kevin Gates-had been serving time at the East Moline Correctional Center since April 2017. The rapper has officially been released from prison on Wednesday. The entrepreneur's videos later led to a compilation of "I Don't Get Tired" videos.

Gates' first sentence stemmed from his 2015 battery charge after an alleged altercation with a female fan at a Florida concert.

The 31-year-old from Baton Rouge, Louisiana came to prominence in 2013, and his studio album "Isiah" reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 in 2016.


Kevin Gates has a few reasons to smile this morning. "Trust me I understand", one fan wrote on Twitter. After spending the past 14 or so months in prison (the last 9 months were from a 30-month sentence), Gates is finally a free man.

According to Gates' lawyer, Herschel Rush, the rapper will also donate his own resources to "various organizations".
