30 Rap Songs You Might’ve Missed This Summer

“4:30″ Kevin Gates

Great storytelling can often be a lost art in modern rap music. Kevin Gates brings more pathos to his music in the first 30 seconds of “4:30” than an entire generation of gangster rappers has in a decade. A harrowing cut about sick-in-the-guts betrayal, Gates drops a story track worthy of his claim that his “life is a movie.”
