Kevin Gates – The Luca Brasi Story Mixtape

By Julie J. / 02.03.13

Two things were immediately evident upon listening to Kevin Gates’ latest offering The Luca Brasi Story. One, he’s a solo soldier; even though he’s signed to YMCMB, the tape is largely him, with few features. Two, his delivery is intense, just like the character of The Godfather.

Aside from the unquestioned, unbridled energy pounding throughout the 22 tracks, the other thing that makes Gates so captivating is his ability to switch it up while remaining deep. Like Luca Brasi, you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get with him. There’s understated humor in the hook of “Weight,” Spanish rapping in “Narco Trafficante,” and even the unexpectedly hopeful message found in “Hold Ya Head Up,” not to mention that he sings on tracks like the Curren$y-assisted “Just Ride.” No matter what song I hear, I’m enjoying Gates’ story of Luca Brasi.
