After a nine-month stint at East Moline Correctional Facility in Illinois, Kevin Gates
has been released on parole.
TMZ reports that the New Orleans rapper was released on Wednesday (January 10), as scheduled,
with no issues.
Following his release, an Instagram post was uploaded to Gates’ account, which has been wiped clean
of previous uploads. The image of white words on a black background simply read “I’M HIM.”
As part of the reported conditions of his parole, Gates will undergo mandatory supervision
and is not allowed to possess any firearms.
On social media, the rapper’s release has been met with excitement from fans, with the occasional
sprinkle of shade.
