In 2014, I had the chance to interview a friend and young artist who had just linked a deal with Breadwinners Association and Atlantic Records. The artist was Baton Rouge rapper Kevin Gates. What many don't know is that I met Kevin a few years earlier, and we stayed in contact.

I always knew there was something about him. I also knew he had the potential to become a huge artist, and he didn't disappoint. Check out my last studio interview with Kevin Gates talking about new music and more.

Over the years, he has had a few bumps in the road, but he has maintained a great music career and has reached out over the years. I am still as proud of him now as I was then. Look out for more hits to come out of the camp.
