Everyone who is up on their mixtape game has been hearing about The Luca Brasi Story since it dropped at the beginning of February and Gates is queued up to make a name for himself this year. On his latest video for “Just Ride” Gates teams with smoked-out fellow Louisiana rapper Curren$y and delivers smooth odes to Mountain Dew and Swisher Sweets against a revolving backdrop of convenience stores and mansions. Sometimes you hear an MC and just feel a connection to their voice — Gates is one of those — he flips between languid rhymes and quick rapping within the song without batting an eye. If you’re a fan of the video check out the rest of his mixtape available here.
