Let us for a moment go ahead and say outside of Drake & Nicki Minaj, nobody is more consistent under the YMCMB umbrella than Kevin Gates. The Baton Rogue native with the penchant for autotune is set to release his Stranger Than Fiction mixalbum on July 16th and a day after releasing “4:30 am” he releases the official video. It’s much like the song except overly ominous with kidnappings and Gates more than believable street tales segueing into one hell of a mini-movie. There are lucid lyrics, a narrative that makes Gates more Tony Soprano than anything, a character with a bit of moral but frankly someone you only root to succeed if you were on the outside looking in. Inside? Pure hell it seems, one that cares to deliver a few compelling stories as well.
