[NEWS] Kevin Gates Facing More Charges and Extradiction

The controversial Louisiana rapper, Kevin Gates was set to be released from a Florida prison today, March 24th after serving 180 days (6 months) in jail for kicking a female fan in the chest at a concert; he claimed it was self defense.  However, looks like the rapper’s release has been postponed due to a out of state warrant stemming from felony weapons charges he obtained in Illinois .

Gates has a hearing today where he can either agree or disagree to go to Illinois’ Cook County to face the charges, which possibly could include aggravated unlawful use of a weapon or appeal the extradition. Although the rapper received quite a bit of  backlash for the incident his debut album “Isiah” went certified platinum last year. – BooM
