HIP-HOP | Kevin Gates 

In the world of Southern hip-hop — especially in his home-state, Louisiana — Kevin Gates is already a heavyweight on stage. He just needs a national break; and that might come later this year when Gates releases his major label debut, "Islah," on Atlantic Records. Named as part of XXL Magazine's 2014 "Freshman Class," Gates balances chest-pumping beats and a heavy, deep voice with lyrics that seem to question his own boasting and self-destructive tendencies. Gates' music is hard hitting hip-hop that will make you think.

Kevin Gates plays with Dej Loaf and DJ Drama on Saturday, October 3, at the Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 7:30 p.m. $25-$75. mainstreetarmory.com; kevingat.es.
