Watch it Wednesday: Kevin Gates – ‘Let It Sing’

Chart-topping rapper Kevin Gates is one of the most noted hip/hop producers of this era. With a Biggie like flare and a heart of gold, he puts out music that keeps it old school in the new world of rap. Differing from his fellow rap producers, Gates maintains a level of boyish innocence while still feeding that inner gangster. We see this in his new track and this week’s Watch it Wednesday “Let It Sing” with a lyric like “Tryna get next to me like I’m Tristan, you think I’m really ’bout to let you get me?”If you know, you know. Gates is a man of morals.

More than just the lyrical genius of it, “Let It Sing” is a high energy beast of a track that got even better with its video release. Following him through what looks to be the “hood”, Gates is soulfully singing his raw lyrics. The underlying tone of this one is released. He’s singing on honest truths in a setting that take it back to basics and serves as a clean backdrop for the song.
