Kevin Gates – Had To (Official Music video)

Following the release of his new mixtape By Any Means 2 in September, Kevin Gates drops another video, this time for the song “Had To.” While Gates is currently still behind bars for a gun charge, the video takes a first-person perspective through the eyes of Gates and chronicles his life.
The video starts off in 2008 and features a young Gates hustling drugs and selling his third mixtape, All In, hand to hand. After showing the rapper going on a shopping spree, the video then moves to the second time Gates was shot.
The “Had To” visuals then jump three years ahead, when Gates is working on the I Don’t Know What 2 Call It Vol. 1 mixtape. The video moves ahead another three years to 2014 and shows Gates with wife Dreka getting his hands tattooed.
We then see a flashback of when the rapper has a run-in with police before the video cuts to present time to show Gates kneeling on the floor, praying. The visual ends with a message from the rapper, who says, “At one time, people used to call me the devil. They say I was a monster. But through the grace of the most high God, God saved me from myself and saved a lot of people in the process. Allahu akbar.”

Gates is currently serving a 30-month prison sentence but may be out by summer of 2018. The website for the Illinois Department of Corrections reveals the rapper is up for parole next year, so if Gates is well-behaved, he may be home sooner than later.
Check out the “Had To” video above.

Kevin Gates – What If (Official Music Video)

Still incarcerated, Kevin Gates drops a visual for the Joan Osborne inspired loosie “What If”, which dropped back in April. At the end of the video, Gates offers a handwritten note to fans that appears on-screen.

“Dear loyal fans,
Disallow yourselves to be troubled in my time of absence. All of the great ones who came before and will come after me: Have had to go through this. By this I am speaking in reference to hardship. A great person is measured by all of the great test they can undergo and still remain to to who they are. What that being said, ‘I’m him.’ I love you all. In closing I remain the same. Forever, Kevin Gates.”
