Kevin Gates Talks Nearly Signing To Young Money & Being Schooled By Lil Wayne & Birdman

Kevin Gates chopped it with Vlad TV recently for a one on one interview about Young Money, Lil Wayne, and Birdman.

During their conversation, Gates spoke on being managed by Fee Banks, nearly signing to YM but changing his mind after a sit down with Baby, being mentored by Wayne, and says that he watched Weezy go to the studio every day and grind like he doesn’t even have a dollar in his pocket.

You can watch the interview in the clip after the jump below!

    • Patrick H

      Gates kills everything, would love to hear him on a Wayne song

    • Young Hitta

      Personaly I think Gates deserves a feature on C5 honestly, this nigga spits that fieeeee

  • Ya heard me

    I wish Gates was on YMCMB

    • http://www.lilwaynehq.com/ Tunechi Lionchess

      So do I. He a lot better than most of their current roster.

    • TRIPPY_94

      So YMCMB doesn’t sign actual good artists like Kevin Gates and August Alsina but they sign Young Thug?????????

      • [Original] Gudda Gudda

        young thug not officially signed and as you can see with gates they tried to get him but he wanted to go solo

        • TRIPPY_94

          True but they could’ve got august tho, august said they took too long

        • Khosta

          he is officially signed

      • Sk Laflare

        Young Thug is wild af on beats how u not like him Dude does A1 on beats

        • Dope Shit

          TF????? GO KILL YOURSELF IF U THINK THIS NIGGA ACTUALLY SPITS LOL CLEAN THAT DAMN SUGAR DADDY OUT YO EAR LOL, YOUNG THUG IS THE FIRST GAY RAPPER LOL GTFOH TALKIN ABOUT HE GO A1 ON BEATS AND SHIT SMH

          • HH Fan

            Young Thug’s flow is sick. Some of his songs suck: big surprise. Some are awesome. Check out the Blanguage. Or don’t. Nobody cares. Anyway, just saying your hate is unjustified, and even if it was, keep it to yourself, it’s trash.

          • James

            Lil Wayne’s gay

      • YMCorey

        Thug not signed.. Stunna is his manager..

        • Skenny

          Good to read that

  • http://www.lilwaynehq.com/ Tunechi Lionchess

    It’s always good to hear these other rappers talk about how Lil Waynes work ethic inspired them.

  • Lageon

    C5 cover will be a 18 yr old Wayne in a cap and gown posing next to a Rolls Royce with his hands pressed together showing out his pinky ring

    • David D

      how much you wanna bet it wont be that?

      • Lageon

        If it is then Tez gon owe me some money

  • Tp3 da truth

    I want kevin gates on C5 he one of my favorite rappers

  • tunechi4lifeya

    T.I. needs to be on a C5 track too. He goes hard on some shit.

    • Patrick H

      No, just no.

      T.I. is only good enough to be on IANAHB albums.

      • tunechi4lifeya

        He wasn’t on IANAHB.

        • [Original] Gudda Gudda

          does it matter
          he is saying he aint good enough to be on a carter album

          • Tunechi4Lifeya

            T.I. is good. He one of the realest rappers for real.

            • David D

              LMFAO

          • Real sh!t

            Talk shit bout TI but dickridin Gudda sayin he the shit? Haha someone give this nigga a blunt

      • corbin wells

        even tho he killed wayne three times on d5 smh.

    • WeezyDaGOAT

      T.I. deserves that

    • Devante Brown

      Yea they make good songs together

    • Dillon

      A year or two ago I would have said go jump in a river but the way T.I is going now I sgree with you. Seems like Wayne and T.I had their slumps at the same time and are now picking it all back up again at the same time

  • tunechi4lifeya

    Lil Wayne needs his own TV show for real. That should would be a hit.

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      he would do it

      • David D

        i think you mean wouldnt

        • Devante Brown

          Every episode would come the day after its supposed to air lol Wayne is never on time with things #C5

    • Nukey

      He said would never do a TV show about him on the re up dvd with Nicki Minaj a few years ago……

      • Tunechi4lifeya

        It’d be lile Weezy Wednesday’s but it’d be an actual 30 minute show. More about his life and shit.

  • WEEZY

  • Don_Hooper19

    Kid Creez tweeted the Side Bitch artwork like 3 hours ago

    • Skenny

      Do you have a word if it was official or not ??

    • Lil Tunechi Or Young Tunafish

      This Kid Creez doesn’t know much to be honest, he’s said a lot of things that weren’t true, he said before that Tha Carter V will drop July 3rd and it didn’t, that artwork for Side Bitch looks cheap, not professional at all, looks like an amateur artwork probably made by a fan, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see

  • Don_Hooper19

    And he Tweeted Yeezy and Weezy studio C5

  • side bitch

    If there is no C5 news today on weezy Wednesday, im done with carter 5 seasn
