Seems to be Gates can not catch a break. With his music being what it is somewhat feels this is no surprise. Sadly Gates has faced back to back charges in different states. His assault charge in Florida after kicking a fan in the chest resulted of him being incarcerated. While under arrest Gates had an old warrant from a Chicago case catch up on him. We assume they are making a statement with Gates in relation to the gun violence case. 30 months in comparison to others gun charges and their outcome. Hopefully this will strengthen Gates and help him in the long run. With him expected to be released in 2019 the question remains will he be able to be the force he once was before he been incarcerated.
