Kevin Gates Clarifies After Meek Mill Speaks On His Legal "Situation"

By HHL JT

During Meek Mill's Breakfast Club interview yesterday he mentioned Kevin Gates as another rapper who's getting a hard time from the criminal justice system.

Gates got out of prison in January after serving 9 months of a 30 months sentence for Felony Gun Possession. But he's barely been heard from since because his probation has kept him in Chicago and away from his music and family. Gates has been so frustrated with the terms of parole that he's discussed getting a restraining order on his PO.

While Gates appreciated Meek's shout out, he wanted to clarify that he's generally fine with how the law has treated him.

“I was watching a ‘Breakfast Club’ interview and I wanted to say I thank the brother Meek Mill for being compassionate towards my situation and talking about it and having a heart for my situation but I’m not upset about my situation as far as Chicago, Illinois, these people love me here. I don’t carry firearms. I’m never in fear of anything but Allah. Someone I was with was caught with a firearm and it was pinned on me. Now I’m not about to speak [and snitch] and tell people it was yours, I don’t do that. I’m a stand-up guy and I believe great people undergo great tests and I stay silent and I never complain and I endured. I just was upset about the parole because I thought it would have been rehabilitative in nature and not punitive.”

Gates may be feeling a little better about his situation because he was recently able to see his kids.
