Kevin Gates’ biography

The rapper was born on the 5th of February, 1986, in Louisiana. Just after his birth, his family moved to Baton Rouge where he grew up.

His ethnicity is a mix of Moroccan (father’s side) and Puerto Rican (mother’s side) ancestry. He has a younger brother ( Brandon Gilyard) and sister.

Kevin’s childhood years were far from perfection. He lost contact with his father at a young age, and not long after they had reconnected, the father died of complications from AIDS. He was 14 years old at the time.

The conditions of Kevin Gates’ family did not get any better after his mother remarried. He spent most of his time with his grandparents because his step-father was mistreating him. Troubles with the law started when he was still a minor.

The rapper was arrested for the first time in 1999 when he was 13. His offence was joyriding in a stolen car as a passenger.

That experience had a profound effect on his life because it steered him in the direction of more crime. He attended the Baton Rouge Community College briefly when he was 17.
