By Any Means (Explicit)

By Any Means by Kevin Gates
Released: Mar 2014
Label: Bread Winners Association/Atlantic
Fresh out of a brief stint in prison on a parole violation, Kevin Gates offers his third mixtape/album in just over a year. The Baton Rouge rapper wastes some time celebrating his growing fame alongside Rico Love ("Go Hard") and 2 Chainz ("Bet I'm On It"), and there's a surplus of same-y trap beats throughout. But at his best, he exemplifies Dirty South struggle on songs like "Wish I Had It," "Posed to Be in Love," "Can't Make This Up" and "Movie." For "Wit It," he raps about love (and sex, of course) with a sensitivity and honesty that's uncommon for the genre.
