Kevin Gates who is currently serving a 30-month prison sentence for a gun charge, which he started shortly after serving 180 days in Polk County jail for battery in 2016, may be out on parole as soon as January 10, 2018 if all goes well. Kevin has been sitting in a cell at Illinois East Moline Correctional Facility for the past nine months. Now, it looks like the New Orleans MC is finally getting out of prison.
His terms of release include mandatory supervision. As part of those conditions, he’s not allowed to possess any firearms either.
If parole is granted for the 31-year-old MC, born Kevin Jerome Gilyard, he will be off parole in January 10, 2019, according to the Illinois Department of Corrections website.
Shortly after releasing Islah at the beginning of 2016, Gates served a 180-day sentence in Polk County jail after being found guilty of battery for kicking a fan at a Lakeland, Florida show. He was then transferred to East Moline Correctional Center on April 27 due to a gun charge case in Illinois dating back to 2013.
His certified platinum Islah album peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 and his wife Dreka, who has been handling all Bread Winners’ Association and family business while Gates has been locked up, helped facilitate the release of his By Any Means mixtape this past September.
