I have some bad news to share with all of you Kevin Gates fans out there, specifically my best friend April. TMZ has just reported that the Louisiana-based rapper will now serve 30 months in jail for a 2013 gun possession charge.

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office in Illinois says Kevin appeared in court Wednesday and pled guilty to his original charge of felony gun possession, and he was denied bond on Wednesday, April 19.

Kevin was sentenced in October and was ordered to serve 180 days in Polk County Jail, located in Bartow, Flordia for kicking a woman in the face at at a show back in 2015.

Kevin was wanted in Chicago for failing to appear in course twice for a gun charge and along with the gun charge, he faced an “aggravated unlawful use of a weapon” charge.
