It’s been a few months since we latest heard Kevin Gates with Renni Rucci on “Boat to Virginia.” Earlier this week, he returned to wax with his latest single “Dear God,” a collaboration alongside FL Dusa that sees the rappers in deep prayer about their struggles:
“Dear God, I just got out of jail, I need you to answer my prayers, I need a plug in Florida, bales and grass unlimited squares, I need a team who willing to crash instead of catching a hat, these niggas been holding these nuts on me so I’m tryna run it up fast, dear God, I hope that you hear me I need you to answer my prayers, I need you to send me a woman who listen, who is not hearing impaired…”
Back in February, Gates dropped off his latest project Only the Generals, Pt. II, the sequel to 2019’s Only the Generals Gon Understand that contained 12 hard-hitting tracks for fans to enjoy. His last official LP, the sophomore release I’m Him, also made landfall a couple of years ago and earned Gates a top five entry onto the Billboard 200 thanks to 72,000 first-week album equivalent units sold. Currently, he’s said to be working on his official follow-up to I’m Him, titled Khaza.
Earlier this week, the Bread Winners’ Association head honcho appeared on Gillie Da King and Wallo’s “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” podcast, where he spoke about a variety of different topics in regards to his life and career. Given his penchant for avoiding collaborations, he did surprise the hosts with one or two possibilities in particular:
“I just got a Meek Mill DM .. something like ‘let’s work.’ … I don’t know him personally, but we know some of the same people, so I got in his DM like ‘let’s work.’ I might give Drake a DM when I get out this bitch.”
