Kevin Gates to Drop Anticipated Debut Album “ISLAH”
Bread Winners Association artist Kevin Gates has announced the release of his long awaited debut album “ISLAH,” which is available for pre-order now (http://smarturl.it/KGIslah) and arrives at last on Friday, December 11th. The album release will follow an upcoming nationwide tour that kicks off November 12th in Orlando, FL. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, September 18 at http://www.kvngates.com/tour.
Gates chose to name his debut album “ISLAH” after his daughter who shares the same name. “Islah” is an Arabic word usually translated as “reform,” in the sense of “to improve, to better, or to put something into a better position.”
“ISLAH” is available now for pre-order, accompanied by the instant grat downloads, “La Familia” and “The Truth.” Additional instant grat tracks and the album’s track listing will be unveiled in the weeks leading up to the December 11th release.
“La Familia” had its world video premiere earlier this month via WorldstarHipHop.com. The clip — directed by Jon J. Visuals — is streaming now at Gates’ official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/kevingatesTV.
Gates — who recently wrapped the sold out second leg of his massively successful “I Don’t Get Tired (#IDGT) Tour” — will herald “ISLAH” with a major nationwide headline tour that will hit most major U.S. markets including a show at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre on November 21st.
