Kevin Gates – “Chained to the City” review


After being released from prison at the beginning of the year, Louisiana rapper Kevin Gates has been laying low ever since. However, he is now officially returning to music out of the blue with a 3-track EP. The first song “Changes” vents about his success as well as his conviction over a gloomy trap beat while the 2nd track “Vouch” is his rags to riches story over a bouncy beat. The EP then finishes with “Let It Sing”, where Kevin gets confrontational over a thunderous beat.

I’ve been waiting for Kevin to make his official return to music & while it isn’t perfect, it goes to show that he’s still one of the best in the trap scene. I wish he added on about 2 more tracks, but the production bangs & he sounds more focused & passionate than ever before

Score: 3.5/5
