Kevin Gates Judge Denied Rapper Bail

Kevin Gates will be staying in the slammer for a little bit longer because a judge has denied him bail.

The Baton Rouge rapper’s legal troubles have been going on since 2015 when a video showing him kicking a female fan at one of his concerts in Miami. A judge sentenced him to 180 days in jail and he served the time and was released on March 24th. He was extradited to Chicago, Illinois a few days later to face weapon charges from a case dated back to 2013.

Kevin Gates had his first court hearing at the Bridgeview Courthouse in Illinois on Wednesday where his attorney requested bail. The motion was denied by the judge, but we still don’t know the reason for denying his bond, TMZ reported. Gates is being housed at the Kendall County Jail and will have a next court hearing in the coming months where his lawyer will again request his release on bond.
