Kevin Gates drops the modern version of “Be A Father To Your Child.”
The music video for Kevin Gates leads off with a heartfelt sequence from his daily life, post-incarceration. A serene-looking Gates finds himself covered in swathes of adoring children — his two youngest daughters. Sweet nothings are administered under the breath of a narrator voiced by the man himself — he credits his children with bringing purpose to his life, on a restitute level normally reserved for God.
“Great Man” proceeds with a handpicked portraiture of men like himself who value family before everything. Historically speaking, Kevin Gates has shown himself to be a rapper that lives within his means. Those conditions have only deepened now that he’s within a stones’ throw of his children at all times.
Luca Brasi 3, from which “Great Man” is pulled, sold a solid 72K in its first week, predominantly off his grassroots reputation. Gates wants to be judged on his accountability as a “Man” of virtue. Hit us with your thoughts. — HOT NEW HIP-HOP
