Kevin Gates was forces to cancel his 4/20 performance at Hippie Hill on Thursday because he was denied bail.
This would have been his first post jail performance, but on Tuesday the Baton Rouge rapper was denied bail by a judge in a Bridgeview Courthouse in Illinois. This means that he will remain behind bars for the foreseeable future. “Unfortunately, due to a situation that we have no control in, Kevin is unable to perform at Hippie Hill on 4/20,” the rapper wrote on Instagram. “We sincerely apologize to all of you who made plans to attend! Thank you all for your continued support.”
Kevin Gates is awaiting trial in Chicago for a 2013 gun case. Last month he was released from jail in Florida after serving six months for an assault case. He was then extradited to Illinois to face the weapon charges.
