The 10 Best Mixtapes of February


Kevin Gates, The Luca Brasi Story

Kevin Gates has steadily cultivated his buzz early last year as one of the hottest acts to come out of Baton Rouge. Gates, who has worked closely with Young Money, just signed a deal with Atlantic Records off the strength of 2011’s Make ‘Em Believe and the follow-up The Luca Brasi Story. Though Lil Boosie is viewed as a hometown hero, Gates has the talent and skills to nationally pop off.

Luca never drags. It has a combination of Southern street rap, experimental hooks, and bounce. Songs like “Neon Lights,” “Just Ride” featuring Curren$y, and “Ugly But She Fine” are evidence of his exceptional rhyming. This is a good starting point for new fans of Gates.
