Kevin Gates has been teasing his Luca Brasi 3 mixtape for a while now, first announcing the the tape back in July, saying it was on the way. Then a few weeks later in August, we received confirmation of the album when Gates announced that he’s taking his talent on the road for his “Luca Brasi 3” tour this Fall, which kicks off next week in Austin, Texas. To help build hype for the album, Gates has been rolling out new records over the past few weeks, including songs like “Great Man,” “Adding Me” & “Money Long” to name a few, but after weeks of promotion, Luca Brasi 3 has finally arrived today.
Serving as Gates’ first official project since getting released from prison in January, Luca Brasi 3 contains 18 tracks in total and comes with no features, allowing plenty of time for Gates tackle production from the likes of DJ Chose, Rock Boy Beats, Yung Ladd & Yung Lan, among others.
“I’ve been gone a year-and-a-half, so it’s a lot of things that I didn’t really speak on that I get to speak on now,” he said about his first project since getting released. “And there’s a lot of things on Luca Brasi 1 and 2 I couldn’t speak about because I was dealing with it at the time.”
Available now on iTunes, fans can stream the project in its entirety via Apple Music or any one of the streaming platforms. Hit play and let us know what you think.
