During his 2014 interview with Vlad TV, rapper Kevin Gates told the interviewer that he's a father to a lot of kids. 

At the time, rapper Gates did not mention the exact number of his biological children. Instead, he talked his way around the subject without giving out anything concrete.

So let's take a look at all we know about the rapper's life and his children.

Kevin Gates' Personal Life

Growing up, Gates didn't know his biological father. He only met his father when he was in the eighth grade. 

The rapper is known for his long history of run-ins with the law. As per a report by The Net Line, the New Orleans native has served time in prison on multiple occasions. 

In 2003, Gates was charged for stabbing a man multiple times, and later between 2008 and 2013, the promising rapper was locked up in prison for thirty-one months. Unfortunately, it was during this time his biological dad passed away due to AIDS.

Interestingly, Gates used his jail time to obtain a Master's degree in Psychology. He graduated in 2013.
