Baton Rouge’s rising old soul Kevin Gates (whose career so far we chronicled on the Everybody’s Sworn Favourite mixtape) is so, so good you almost forget he’s still an underdog outside of Louisiana. He certainly hasn’t forgotten though and new street album/mixtape ‘Stranger Than Fiction’ is yet another immensely raw, emotional and straight brilliant claim to the throne we know he deserves.

Stream ‘Stranger Than Fiction’ in its entirety below via LiveMixtapes and make sure you cop it via iTunes.
