Kevin Gates Sentenced to 30 Months Over Gun Charge

Baton Rouge rapper Kevin Gates has been locked up since last fall for kicking a female fan in the chest during one of his live performances. Gates served his time in a Florida jail for the incident but was denied release after his 2013 gun case from Chicago emerged. The rapper failed to appear in court at the time and an arrest warrant was issued.

According to TMZ, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office in Illinois says Gates appeared in court Wednesday (April 26) and pled guilty to his original charge of felony gun possession.

He was sentenced to 30 months and will be transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections.
