    Preparing for The Tour

    LOS ANGELES, CA (July 28, 2021) – Kevin Gates, renowned for his honesty and fulfillment of commitments, has recently revealed a collaboration with the socially conscious digital platform, Propeller. This partnership coincides with his upcoming KHAZA TOUR.

    The Campaign

    The campaign will benefit causes that mean the most to him from mental health to ending mass incarceration and environmental justice. For their unwavering support for organizations that Kevin has chosen, fans can enter to win one-of-a-kind prizes including a pair of VIP tickets and a virtual meet and greet with Kevin (2 tix for each city), and a grand prize flyaway trip to meet Kevin on the final stop of his massive tour in Atlanta that includes airfare, hotel, tickets and more. Fans have numerous opportunities to earn more points and increase chances of winning.

    Organizations Involved 

    The campaign supports various organizations, including the Anti-Recidivism Coalition (ARC) which aims to end mass incarceration in California. To Write Love on Her Arms is also involved, focusing on offering hope and assistance to individuals facing depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. Additionally, the campaign aids NRDC, an organization committed to protecting the Earth, its inhabitants, plants, animals, and the natural systems that sustain life. 

    His Foundation 

    Lastly, Kevin also established The Kevin & Dreka Gates Foundation, his own organization in partnership with his partner. The foundation’s mission is to educate and raise awareness among young people about challenges such as depression, mental health, financial struggles, and other difficult issues they encounter today.

    “Just knowing the work that these organizations do to make a change, made me want to get behind them and support them,” notes Kevin. “I know ARC does a lot of work with helping previously incarcerated individuals reintegrate back into society and help them get back to their family. That’s not always an easy thing to do. I remember when I was locked up, that was the hardest thing, being away from family, especially my son Khaza. He was at home around a bunch of amazing women but I knew he needed his dad. I named this upcoming KHAZA tour after him to show him I love him and I’m here. We did it for Islah, now it’s his turn.” 

    Dreka Gates — Kevin’s wife, manager and influential presence of social media — who is an active part of the campaign added, “Supporting these causes makes my heart sing. I happily support them because I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they are intentional in their efforts to really make a difference.”

    Depth of Charity

    In addition to taking action with these organizations, Kevin and Dreka have donated items straight from their closets to raise funds for their organization. Fans can bid on items including Kevin’s Red Letterman Bomber Jacket, which he notes “My baby, my red bomber jacket. We had our time together, now I’m ready to donate it for such a good cause.”

    Additional items include pairs of his Nike AF1-TYPE Summit White Shoes, Custom Colored Rose Nike ID Air Force 1 Shoes, ‘Light Bone’ Nike Air Force 1 MID ’07 Shoes, and a pair of Spruce Frog’ Nike Air Force 1 Utility Shoes. Dreka Gates has donated two pairs of kicks — her Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Hospital Blue and her Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Clay, noting “I’m a huge fan of Yeezy and went a little crazy at one point, buying every pair of shoes that I could get my tiny hands on. I’m so happy they can now support the Kevin & Dreka Gates Foundation.”

    Kevin Gates Influence

    Kevin Gates has emerged as one of the most influential and unique rappers in the industry simply by staying true to himself. With an incredible career spanning nearly 15 years, he doesn’t follow trends, censor himself, or hold back. The Baton Rouge, LA native has achieved remarkable milestones, including 6 billion streams, 6 billion views, and numerous multi-platinum, platinum, and gold certifications. He has secured four Top 5 positions on the Billboard Top 200, as well as seven Top 5 entries on both the Top Rap Albums Chart and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Charts.

    The Accolades

    Moreover, he’s sold out successive headline tours, delivered show-stopping sets at Rolling Loud and JMBLYA, and ignited arenas with Cardi B. It’s the reason why he’s received various high-profile award nominations. And he’s reached rarified air, emerging as second best-selling hip-hop artist of 2016 only behind Drake. It’s why he’s also spawned countless think pieces. Among those, Pitchfork described 2019’s gold-certified I’m Him as “another showcase for the Baton Rouge rapper’s fully formed and gloriously weird personality” and praised, “The hooks are magnificent, his most boisterous and fine-tuned since Islah.” As always, he doesn’t compromise on 2021’s Only The Generals Part II [Breadwinners Association/Atlantic Records] and more music on the horizon. He’s only gotten better at being Kevin Gates.
