Hot! Rapper Kevin Gates To Serve 30 Months For Chicago Gun Charge

A Louisiana rapper whose 2016 studio album reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 was sentenced to 30 months in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to a gun charge from a Chicago arrest.

Kevin Jerome Gilyard, 31, known by his stage name Kevin Gates, pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm in connection with a 2013 arrest, according to court records.

Gilyard was arrested around 8:10 p.m. on Oct. 29, 2013 in the 7200 block of South Stony Island Avenue, according to police records.

Arrests warrants were issued against Gilyard at least twice in the case, once in 2013 when he failed to show up in court, and again in December 2016, according to court records.
