Ever since being released from prison early this year, we’ve been hungry for new music from Kevin Gates. He’s delivered too, dropping off his Chained to the City EP and featuring heavily on YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s 4Respect. When he announced his Luca Brasi 3 project was dropping, we were excited for a return to vintage Gates and with it releasing later this week, the anticipation couldn’t be any higher. The Baton Rouge artist dropped “Me Too” a few days ago and today, his latest effort “Adding Up” is the featured World Record on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show.
Premiering on Apple Music, Gates is all about the money on his most recent single. Zane noted that the word “banger” is thrown around pretty frequently these days but assures the listeners that this one indeed goes insanely hard. Gates spoke a little too, ensuring everybody that he’s been working harder than ever in an attempt to greatly improve from his last creative output. When he wrote “Adding Up,” he was clearly in a money-counting mood, flexing an income that just keeps on growing.
With all the new music we’ve been receiving from Gates in the last month, Luca Brasi 3 is looking set to be a highlight in his career. What do you think of his new single?
Oh he say he thugging well that shit ain’t adding up
I’ma keep on flexing cause these n—as ain’t man enough
B-tch I’m never going broke, shit my money keep adding up
