On the Thursday, June 11th, episode of #EverydayStruggle, Nadeska, Wayno and DJ Akademiks are joined by Louisiana rapper Kevin Gates. Gates discusses his upcoming album ‘I’m Him’ and the pressures he’s dealt with trying to create the project. Later in the show, he reveals why didn’t sign to the Cash Money Records and says he learned a lot from Birdman’s savvy business ways during his time with the music mogul. Gates also discusses his past issues, including his struggles with depression and spending time in prison, and how he's found peace with the help of his family and wife. Plus he talks about his friendship with YoungBoy Never Broke Again and discusses some of the criticism he's dealt with publicly before hugging it out with Akademiks.

I see kevin as someone who was mislead his while life by himself and he is now realizing alot of his faults while fight with himself over what parts of him are really him and which parts arnt really him. Mad respect for big man. He isnt perfect but he is aware and the worst thing you can be is ignorant and kevin defintly isnt that.

If you don’t know, then there’s no rules that makes a far away cousin gross except that people are just critical of every and anything they can... It is normal in ancient cultures to keep wealth in the family but “broke minded” people have nothing to protect so they frown or laugh randomly at anything with real thought out reasons.., sadly. 😎🤴🏿🤟🏾👍🏾✊🏿✌🏾💙❤️💙

I agree with everything he says, but he needs to look into what the Quran’s core tenants are, which is violence and sexual abuse. Much respect to this man, but it’s sad to see him be trapped into this false religion.
