Kevin Gates’ Kids Star in New Music Video “Imagine That”
Kevin Gates remains behind bars, but with help from his wife Dreka, the Baton Rouge, La. rapper recently dropped his latest project By Any Means 2 and has now released a video for the song "Imagine That."
Made up of footage of his children, wife and the community of Baton Rouge, the video for "Imagine That" begins with Gates speaking with one of his children on the phone. The rapper tells his child he will miss their birthday party, but when he gets out, he'll throw them two parties.
The black-and-white video ends with Dreka and the children, Islah and Khaza, awaiting their father's return as they stand under a welcome home banner.
On Sept. 22, Gates dropped By Any Means 2. Featuring the songs "Beautiful Scars" and "Had To," the project was put together by Dreka. "I'm nervous as F b/c I'm not getting any input from him & he's fully entrusted me w/everything so there's a lot of pressure!" she said in July.
The rapper remains in jail after being sentenced to 30 months for a weapon charge. The arrest came after Gates was released from a Florida jail for kicking a woman in the chest during a concert.
In an open letter to his fans that was published earlier this month, Gates asked fans to "Disallow yourselves to be troubled in my time of absence. All of the great ones who came before and will come after me: Have had to go through this."
