Kevin Gates is applying pressure all-year long. Following the release of his standout mixtape Luca Brasi 3, and most recently Only The Generals Gon Understand which released in May, the New Orleans rapper returns with a brand new record titled “Push It,” and a fire visual to match. The song embodies all the hard work, motivation, drive, and passion he puts into his music, touching on real-life experiences and proving you really can make it out of the trenches.
The four-minute video opens with the camera zoomed in on Gates lying in a bed, covered in snakes. The shot then goes to him dressed in a hoodie on a run, as his voice states “My biggest problem in life, was overcoming myself. But once I defeated myself, the only left, was peace.”
The delivery on this record is similar to his others, bringing that energy into not only the rap game, but life in general. The music video sees Gates fighting his old self, eventually getting into a fist fight until one of them crumbles. Watch above!
