Kevin Gates Thinks Black People Killing Each Other Undermines Black Lives Matter Movement
Black Lives Matter supporters will not be happy with a recent video that Kevin Gates posted on social media. The Baton Rouge, La. rapper takes to Instagram to deliver a 60-second rant about how, in his view, it's hypocritical to complain about police brutality because black people are killing each other on a daily basis.
In the since-deleted Instagram video, Gates says, "We kill each other. I’m talking about we lay up under each other’s cars, lay behind each other’s houses then whip by, boom boom, kill everybody in the car…We kill each other, but as soon as a white boy kills one of us, everybody go to hoopin’ and hollerin’ and all that old stupid-ass shit …That’s bullshit. When you stand for something, you’ve got the stand for it all the way, not half way. I said it before, and I’ll say it again, and fuck who don’t like that. You know what’s worse than a nigga? Another one."
He continues, "[People say] 'he should’ve let him live.' Yeah, so we could kill him. Niggas hate on niggas. Niggas steal from niggas. Niggas kill niggas. Help your brother, man, don’t hurt your brother. Fuck you doin'?"
As aforementioned, Gates deleted the post in question. In fact, it seems he has deleted most of the posts on his Instagram page. Only 13 total posts remain on his account.
This is not the first time Gates has expressed a strange opinion about the tragedies over the past 10 days. Check out XXL's list of 5 Rappers Who Angered Fans By Supporting All Lives Matter Movement.
