Kevin Gates to Council Troubled Teens Once Free from Prison

Word in the wind, Baton Rouge rapper Kevin Gates will be home early as Wednesday, January 10th, from an Illinois state penitentiary. Gates wants to use his life experiences to be an example for teens living wreckless lives in these streets.

According to his lawyer;

The rapper’s attorney, Herschel Rush, tells TMZ … Kevin’s plans after he’s released from an Illinois penitentiary Wednesday include devoting considerable time and resources talking to troubled teens and sharing anecdotes from his own life in hopes they’ll avoid the same pitfalls.

Rush tells us the rapper will reach out to various organizations — including the Boys & Girls Club — to share stories about his regrettable decisions. No doubt Kevin can’t wait to see his wife and kids and get back to making music, but he’s also itching to set kids straight.

As previously reported on, Dreka Gates revealed that Kevin would be coming home late 2017 early 2018.
