Rapper and Baton Rouge native Kevin Gates was recently sentenced to 180 days in jail for kicking a female fan at a Florida show last year, The Associated Press reports. The incident was filmed on a cell phone.
Gates was found guilty of battery, according to the AP. Gates’ attorney says the rapper was battered by the woman before he kicked her.
Gates was previously scheduled to perform at Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, but according to a tweet from the festival, he’ll no longer be playing.
Unfortunately Kevin Gates is unable to perform at #VoodooFest due to an unforeseen incarceration. Keep an eye here & on the App for updates.
