The Best St. Louis Hip-Hop Shows: August 2014
Kevin Gates with Chevy Woods at the Ready Room
8 p.m. / $16.40-$20
In 2007, Louisiana's Kevin Gates started working with one of hip-hop's heaviest hitters, Lil Boosie. After cutting the successful track "Get in the Way" with Boosie as the featured artist, Gates was finally on the come up. Sadly, the rapper was briefly jailed in 2011, but luck seemed to be on his side: Upon his release, his management was taken over by Young Money Entertainment's management wing, and he's been signed to Atlantic Records since 2013. Gates has steadily kept releasing new music and is currently on tour for his latest project By Any Means. Practice some punctuality to catch opener Chevy Woods.
