Yesterday, Gates made headlines after receiving a 30-month sentence.

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office in Illinois says Kevin appeared in court Wednesday and pled guilty to his original charge of felony gun possession. Remember, the outstanding weapons-related warrant popped up the same day he completed his sentence in Florida for kicking a woman in the face at one of his shows. The warrant was issued because Kevin failed to appear in court for the 2013 gun case. (TMZ)

In late March, social media went nuts after pics of Gates looking like a free man went viral.
