Kevin Gates – By Any Means 2 Review

This release adds another strong showing to an already great mixtape catalog. Kevin Gates doesn’t let being behind bars slow him down as he puts out more solid music.

The production is good as the highs and lows explored on the project are mimicked in the beats. Each creates an effective atmosphere for the message of the song and really help with the cohesiveness. Maybe something with some more real instruments would have made another interesting moment, but the selection here works very well.

The lyricism strong with Gates using a lot of different devices used to great effect. The delivery of the lines is another asset that helps lift this to another level. There are no issues with the performance here.

Overall, with the decision to have only one feature to help add some more singing, Gates shows a complete range of skills. Maybe when he is released he can keep this momentum going.
