Kevin Gates : The Luca Brasi Story

Track artwork

YMCMB-affiliated Louisiana rapper Kevin Gates is the latest MC to attract serious internet attention with anexcellent, album quality free-to-download mixtape, The Luca Brasi Story. Over bleak, tense trap beats courtesy of producers like the Maven Boys and Grizzly On The Beat, Gates rhymes like a more weathered, more streetwise Drake about hustlin’ and heartbreak with an impressively measured blend of youthful braggadocio and been-there-done-that world wisdom. Grab the whole Story here, and listen to Swiff D-produced early highlight “Paper Chasers” below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
