Kevin Gates Releases New Video For DISCUSSION

Bread Winners Association recording artist Kevin Gates is on a roll leading into 2019. The multi-platinum artist has unveiled another new music video, this time for "Discussion," the opening track of his critically acclaimed mixtape LUCA BRASI 3. The visual for "Discussion" - which gives us a look at multiple sides of Kevin Gates (all at once) and sees him rapping his way through life's issues with a therapist figure - is streaming now, watch HERE.

Today, Gates also proudly announces The "Great Man" Business Grant, which will be given to an entrepreneur with a vision for a new business or an existing business owner who has a vision to expand his business within the community. Inspired by Gates' anthem "Great Man," the grant is being funded by The Kevin & Dreka Gates Foundation, whose overall mission is to educate and empower youth with the mindset that even if you are dealt a bad hand, you can still make good decisions early in life that lead to a successful and positive outcome.

Gates' "Great Man" video, which now boasts over 6 million views, features cameos by Gates' immediate family as well as his close friend, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

In addition to releasing LUCA BRASI 3 and touring the U.S., Gates rounded out an incredible year with his return to late-night television alongside Gucci Mane. The duo performed their song "I'm Not Goin'" on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! in early December. Watch their performance, dubbed "lavish" by Rolling Stone HERE.

The "Discussion" video follows the recently released visual for "M.A.T.A." which was filmed at the location of Gates' new business venture, an escape room in Los Angeles called the "House On Carolina," which is a replica of one of Kevin's Baton Rouge trap houses and open to the public indefinitely. "M.A.T.A." is streaming now, watch HERE.

"Discussion," "Great Man" and "M.A.T.A." are some of the many highlights from LUCA BRASI 3, which is available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. Gates' first mixtape since his release from prison earlier this year made an explosive chart debut last month, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #4 with sales equivalents exceeding 78,000. LUCA BRASI 3 also includes the recent hits, "Me Too," "Money Long," and "Adding Up," the latter two of which are joined by new companion visuals streaming via Gates' official YouTube channel. In addition, "Kevin Gates x Sway: The Definitive Interview" premiered last month exclusively via YouTube. The controversial four-part series can be viewed HERE.

LUCA BRASI 3 has drawn critical acclaim equal to its popular success, with HotNewHipHop declaring that "Kevin Gates remains one of the most fascinating personalities and talents." "Gates doesn't let his time away knock him off his stride," wrote Pitchfork. "On 'LUCA BRASI 3,' Gates serves as a corrective to a rap landscape that favors absolutes. In his world, everything is always a little less clear-cut." SPIN hailed the mixtape's "Money Long" and "Great Man" as "quintessential Gates: melancholic trap songs punctuated by his partially crooned, highly emotive raps." "(Gates') everyman hustler persona, charm, and vulnerability are his most valuable assets," declared Consequence of Sound. "He is clear by the close of 'LUCA BRASI 3' that nothing can stop him."

Widely regarded among hip-hop's greatest new stars, second only to Drake as the best-selling hip-hop artist of 2016, Gates recently wrapped up his epic sold-out "Luca Brasi 3 Tour." He'll be announcing additional live dates soon - for updates, please visit www.kvngates.com.
