Kevin Gates just dropped a visual from behind bars and it is possibly the saddest sweetest thing you will see today.
Gates’ “Imagine That” visual was just published on September 25th. The single is apart of Gates’ most recent mix tape, By Any Means 2. Additionally, according to XXL, the mix tape was released on September 21st. PnB Rock lent his vocals on “Beautiful Scars”. This, “Beautiful Scars” track is the sole feature on the project.
Already, though, the views on “Imagine That” are well over 1 million. Not only are the views steadily rising, but so are voices of the fans’ appreciation. It has been called “beautiful” and “chilling”. Some have even gone as far as to share their own experiences with losing loved ones to the prison system.
“I’m sure many of you out there can relate to this, but not having my husband/best friend/father to my children home right now, makes our life really hard sometimes. It’s the simple things like birthday parties and family gatherings that we take for granted. And it’s tough for our kids to understand. I empathize with any of you out there going through the same thing with loved ones who are locked up. Hopefully this video will connect with you guys.”

The compelling visual opens with audio from a phone call Kevin Gates shared with his daughter, Islah, while imprisoned.
