Rapper Kevin Gates was sentenced Wednesday to 30 months in prison for violating his probation on a weapons charge.

In March, Gates dutifully turned himself in to Chicago authorities, thinking he would be released immediately. But an Illinois judge ordered him held without bail until his hearing.

The rapper, whose real name is Kevin Jerome Gilyard, 31, was arrested in Florida last October and charged with assault after he kicked a female concertgoer in the chest.

Gilyard was set to be released in March, but a last minute computer check turned up a warrant on weapons charges in Illinois.

Let this be a lesson to all you felonious thugs who think you can get off easy because you have a little paper.

    Do the crime, pay the time brother man!

  • Jen_no_juice

    I don't feel sorry or pity for him at all. Hopefully he'll learn

  • Moon Lee

    This man is a monster, people stop feeding the monster! Starve the monster...

    Kick though? SMH. I have zero flucks to give to this "man". Boy bye!

    I guess he wasn't wearing his "they" block

  • Yoni7

    Wasn't he the one that was letting his dog tongue him in the mouth?

  • Yoni7

    You gotta be one hoe ass, sorry ass, sucka ass, sissyclawing, punk ass dude to kick a female. Ugh.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I honestly don't care at all. He's a p.o.s. as far as I'm concerned. Interestingly, I heard that he does not consider himself black. I wonder if he is on some enlightened kick or if he is clowning (read:co.o.ning).

  • klwbaby

    Oh well, he will be getting "kicked" in jail..?

  • klwbaby

    He's a clown...

  • Cricket404

    He should be blacklisted for what he did to this young lady, never make another penny in the industry.

  • isaiit

    Not sure but I know he was the one that was sleeping with his own cousin...

  • isaiit

    He looks ROUGH!

  • Elle

    I bet he wishes he had enjoyed an overzealous fan trying to touch him on stage now..

  • T Kenny

    im sure he didnt think he'd wind up in jail for years for what he did. probably thought she'd just take him to court for a few dollars, which should also be done

  • Coy little wink

    But he knew he was on probation so why not? The jail time is for the weapons charge

  • Thismessismessy

    They dont wanna see you winnin Kev.
    They want you locked up in a penitentiary.

    Speaking of, his ass is next. Kodak Black.

  • ShWa

    Oh welp, when u live that street life just be prepared for what comes with it if you are too stupid to leave it alone after previous trouble.....

  • Clopretty

    This is what you call Karma!

  • Coy little wink
  • Blak

    Good, leave his ass in there. He loves anything that evolves around violence so he is where he needs and wants to be. I guess being successful, living free and being wealthy with a family was not enough for him, he would prefer being behind bars in small quarters with men up his ass.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Jail isn't a good look for him, now he looks like a member of the Taliban

  • tintin

    the beard looks very shabby

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    His reaction shows that this was second nature to him. It wasn't like she was attacking him.....dude is used to mistreating people PERIOD.

  • Yoni7

    gross. How did you know this?

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    Girl. It's some crazy mess DJ Khaled apparently has going on in the Snapchat community. My little cousin and sister-in-law have like an entirely different language and points of reference that they constantly have to update me on. I just learned about "they" block last night ?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I bet he's rethinking that drop kick now. Once the system gets a hold of a celebrity, they will make an example out of you. Tough lesson.

  • Luv Pitties

    Every time I see him all I see is that incestuous relationship he had with his cousin. I have no use for this clown

  • Carrington

    I swear on everything that's EXACTLY what I see when I see him. After I saw that video, I could NEVER look at him the same. He totally disgusts me.

  • Birdman24

    Caption: Damn please tell Dreka keep eating them pineapples and keep her legs closed a little while longer. HE DUMB LIKE THAT

  • Birdman24

    Upvote given. But I can't agree it is celebrities. More like assholes who need a lesson like Kevin Gates..

  • Birdman24

    The whole head.

  • Shaylove1975

    They gonna get 50 too.

  • DroneRivers

    He admitted it himself. And even said after he found out they were related he continued to sleep with her.

  • isaiit

    He admitted it to the general public

  • Yoni7

    So sickening!

  • Yoni7

    Purely disgusted right now. Hence why I probably NEVER got into this dude. #strongvibes #thatthirdeyeaintblind

  • Tee Tee

    Good riddance
