Kevin Gates “Reasonable Suspicion” (“Dead Presidents” Freestyle)
There are plenty of rappers out there rhyming over classic instrumentals just for the sake of rhyming. It's therapy for Kevin Gates. The Louisiana rhymer surprises listeners with a freestyle over "Dead Presidents." Yes, Jay Z's "Dead Presidents."
"Reasonable Suspicion" takes a step away from Gates' penchant for indelible songwriting for his more natural and humane traits. His voice is a mournful one, and it helps as he transfixes his open emotions to bar-by-bar fluidity. Gates uses his past experiences — rejecting the Cash Money deal and criminal activity — for present motivation: "Finally took the charge freed our neck from the nooses/ God put me in position don't ever confuse it."
