Watch Kevin Gates' Emotional New Video For 'Time For That'

Email a Friend

The new video from Baton Rouge rapper Kevin Gates is a sultry slow-burner beautifully shot against an arid landscape, with Gates standing amid the ruins of a dusty, burned-out building. It's a stark setting for his musings on fame and identity, sex and the intricate dance of dating.

"Time For That" is from Gates' debut full-length, Islah. He released its video on his own website earlier today.

Watch Kevin Gates in a 2014 interview with Microphone Check's Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Frannie Kelley, as he discusses his conflicted feelings regarding fame and success.
