EVENT DETAILS

Muzic Events presents Kevin Gates & Friends live at the Rapides Parish Coliseum on Saturday, September 28th.

 

Gates made history with this debut album ISLAH, which was released in January 2016 and cemented Kevin as one of the best-selling hip-hop artists of 2016, second only to Drake. The critically acclaimed debut album was certified double platinum by the RIAA for sales in excess of 2 million – 2016’s only debut album to receive platinum certification within one year.

 

One of the rare major hip-hop releases to contain no featured artists, ISLAH made an incredible chart debut, entering Billboard’s “Top Rap Albums” chart at #1 while also coming in at #2 on the Billboard 200. ISLAH received critical acclaim cementing its place as a milestone hip-hop release, named among 2016’s top 50 releases by both Billboard and Complex.

 

“ISLAH is a sustained and triumphant outpouring,” declared Pitchfork in a “Best New Music” 8.5-out-of-10 rave review, “and Gates gives every good, bad, and ugly thing he has. It’s by far the best single release of his career.” The album earned Gates a nomination for Best Rap Album at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.

 

Gates released the third installment of the Luca Brasi mixtape trilogy, Luca Brasi 3 in 2018. The project debuted at #2 on the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart and #3 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart. In November, Gates concluded his hugely successful Luca Brasi 3 tour, selling out 17 of his 26 show dates. Gates just dropped his first single, Push It off his forthcoming album, I'm Him.
