In recent years, Kevin Gates’ antics off-stage have become as entertaining as his music.
The rapper, born in Baton Rouge, became a key player in hip-hop after releasing a series of mixtapes. Projects like The Luca Brasi Story and Stranger Than Fiction garnered a lot of attention and established Kevin as a force to be reckoned with.
He dropped his debut album Islah in 2016 and it became an instant success. It reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, paving the way for his successful rap career.
Along with being a Grammy-nominated artist, he was an internet star. In 2013, he released the song “Thinking With My D--k," which has since become a viral sensation.
Years later, Kevin explained that the song was just another example of his abilities as a rapper.
“Every time, I’m going to give you texture,” he told . “The beautiful thing about when I give you texture is that the people, the mere mortals, they may not understand my vision because I live in a realm of supremity.”
Kevin is now focused on music, but that has not stopped him from getting attention for his over-the-top behavior. Here are some of the rapper’s best quotes and funniest moments.
“The longest I fasted was about three weeks.”
Kevin previously made a stop at Big Boy’s Neighborhood, where he opened up about his health and fitness journey, and told a story that shocked everyone.
“The longest I done ever did dry fasting was like close to a month; about three weeks. No food, no water,” the rapper said. However, his claim was met with backlash as netizens slammed the lyricist for making the claim.
“Women with acne in they face" are better lovers.
It should be noted that Kevin is not a medical professional.
However, that has not stopped him from making bizarre claims about the female anatomy. During a stop at The Breakfast Club, the “2 Phones” rapper made a suggestion that left the room speechless. “I know this gon’ sound crazy,” he began.
Kevin went on to explain that he prefers “a lot of women with acne in they face" because they are better lovers than women who don't.
"Cause they hormones are so imbalanced, that it cause them to have congestion," the rapper added.
“I didn’t know that she was my cousin.”
Just when we thought Kevin was done revealing his scandalous secrets, he appeared on Yung Miami’s Caresha Please and spilled more unwanted details. Kevin spoke candidly about a past relationship that he had with a woman who turned out to be his cousin.
“I didn’t know that she was my cousin, but once I found out, then I ain’t about to stop,” he said. “She wasn’t no close cousin. I don’t care. Don’t care. Sorry not sorry. Would do it again.”
