In a matter of hours, Kevin Gates will release his sophomore album I’m Him. The long-in-the-works follow-up to Islah, the album will be a watershed moment for the rapper who has had to overcome a myriad of personal and professional issues over the past few years.
“All of those negative connotations the world puts out… I’m him,” he says. “All of those positive connotations the world puts out…I’m him as well. This is the new Kevin versus the old Kevin. It’s a celebration. It’s a rebirth. It’s redemption. I’m overcoming who I used to be in order to be greater.”
Ahead of its impending release, Gates has shared a video for the album’s opener, “RBS Intro.” Check it out below.
