Louisiana rapper Kevin Gates is finally ready to let the world hear what he’s been cooking up these past few months. The hip-hop artist has announced plans to drop his Luca Brasi 3 mixtape.

KG went to Instagram this week to break the big news and promise the project is only a sample size of what he has on deck.

“I’m about to drop Luca Brasi 3 – I’m really scared but I got so much music so I’m like, ‘Go on, f*ck it. Let the streets f*ck with it.’ It’s time for it.”

Back in May, Gates surprised fans with his Chained To The City EP release.


A few months ago, Kevin talked about having to stay grounded in Illinois months after getting released from jail.

“I was watching a ‘Breakfast Club’ interview and I wanted to say I thank the brother Meek Mill for being compassionate towards my situation and talking about it and having a heart for my situation but I’m not upset about my situation as far as Chicago, Illinois, these people love me here. I don’t carry firearms. I’m never in fear of anything but Allah. Someone I was with was caught with a firearm and it was pinned on me. Now I’m not about to speak [and snitch] and tell people it was yours, I don’t do that. I’m a stand-up guy and I believe great people undergo great tests and I stay silent and I never complain and I ain’t do it ’til the end. I just was upset about the parole.”


Recently, Kevin’s wife Dreka came forward to update everyone on his status and revealed he couldn’t legally return to their California home.

“Hi guys, I am coming to you on behalf of Kevin and just apologizing to everyone because Kevin is unable to make it to the shows this weekend and next weekend. The Illinois Department of Corrections has prevented Kevin from leaving the state of Illinois. He isn’t even allowed to come home to California where we live and since he was released in January, he has not been able to come home not one time. So just know guys that we’re doing everything in our power that we can to just get through this and work this out so he can get back to doing what he loves to do and just know that we really, really appreciate each and every one of you all. You guys just have no idea how much we appreciate your love and support and just know that we’re going to make it up to you guys and he’s been in the studio going really, really hard right now. So you guys will hear from him like really soon. We love you.”
