Kevin Gates dropped off his 18-minute Only the Generals Gon Understand project on Friday morning. The six-track EP follows his Luca Brasi 3 2018 mixtape. Gates spits rhymes with the powerful delivery that fans have grown to love throughout Only the Generals Gon Understand. Once again, the rapper chose not to feature any other artists as he did with Luca Brasi 3 on his record.
He released his single “I Got That Dope” last week, fueling rumors that a project was on its way, but the track is not mysteriously on Gon Understand Only Generals. The latest release of Gates may be a short one, but listeners in the voice of the rapper can hear the hunger. Gates was released from prison in January 2018 after serving a 30-month sentence for nine months. He pleaded guilty to gun possession, but Gates maintained his innocence in one of his first interviews after his release.
“I was innocent, but I pled guilty because, you know, you can beat the charge a lot of times, but you can’t beat the ride,” said Gates. “I’d probably have just been fighting the charge for another three or four years.”
