As reported on spillinthetea.com Kevin Gates is still not a free man but being behind bars did not the music flow. He recently released his latest project “By Any Means 2” featuring hit singles Beautiful Scars, D*** U Down, and Had to Know It. I had the pleasure to sit down with Gates’ wife, Dreka. She talks about the project, family, and what she is working on for herself.

Dreka explains the process behind Kevin Gates “By Any Means 2” mixtape. She elaborates on Gates work ethic and gives insider that these tracks were recorded way before Gates was sentenced to time in prison.

Kevin is like a machine and when he is home like that’s all he does. That was just a few of the songs that we were going to use for his album, but he has so much more in the vault locked and loaded ready to go.

Dreka not only speaks on her husband and the work he has been putting into his career but she opens up about her children as well. When asked about Islah being the lead in the “Imagine That” video she says; “Kevin wasn’t here to do it and Kazaa wasn’t old enough,she was kinda the best person to do it.” Islah also came with a fee to be in the video but her price was very reasonable.

Watch Islah hold it down below.


In conversation Dreka talks about Kevin hopefully coming home at the end of this year. Not only is Dreka a the manger,wife, and mother; but she is also working on her own brand. She talks about an upcoming clothing line, skin care products, a reality show and more.

#CatchTheTea With A Tru Lady: Larissa (Bootz) Talks Flavor of Love, Claudia Jordan and More

We all know and remember Larissa Aurora as Bootz from the hit reality show “Flavor of Love.” 10 years after the show I had a chance to catch up with the once reality star. Bootz talks about an accident that caused her to no longer pursue her career in television. She is not allowing that to stop her and she continues to go to school and raise her two adorable children.


Larissa had a feisty attitude on the Flavor of Love Show, where she was not afraid to speak her mind. That attitude landed her on Monique’s once popular show “Charm School.” Weekly viewers watched Larissa and Monique go head to head, even until the last moment of her being expelled. Larissa speaks about her and Monique crossing paths after the show and still no words were spoken between the two.

I asked Larissa about her once prominent friendship between her and Shay, aka Buckey, and she says the two are still not speaking after a second falling out. Out of all the ladies from the show she is still in contact with Saaphyri on a weekly basis.

Larissa wanted to address one Real Housewife in particular, Claudia Jordan. Larissa says Claudia had much to say about her doing reality tv, making claims that Bootz was a “hood rat” for being a part of reality television. Oh how the tables have turned.

Larissa says she only enjoys the women who keep it real on reality television and names her favs; Tanisha Thomas, Natalie  Nunn, Tiara Hodge all from  The Bad Girls Club and  Joseline Henandez from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta

#CatchTheTea With A Tru Lady: Kevin Gates talks Heartbreak, #IDGT Movement, and his “Aubella”

Louisiana’s own Kevin Gates was in town for his concert at A Town West. I had a chance to sit down with the  2014 XXL Freshman. This felt more of  a conversation than an interview. Gates talks depression, heartbreak,breaks down where the  “I Don’t Get Tired”  movement began, and so much more.

Gates expressed how much his Aubella, grandmother in Spanish, truly meant to him. He explains the reasoning behind the Instagram post of him covering her mouth. People took his gesture out of context when he was merely was showing respect for his “Aubella”.

Kevin Gates really embraces his imperfections in his music and feels once he puts his flaws on the table, he is perfect. He makes the analogy between a man and a woman  accepting one another for who they are, but try to change each other. He expresses his thoughts about judgement passed by one another.

Kevin also touches on how he was slept on before making the  2014 XXL freshman list and how people were “WOW’d” by his intelligence. He would “rather be admire from a distance.”

Check out the clip below. Watch footage from his concert here.
