Kevin Gates unloads a brand new single as fans anticipate the release of “Khaza (Deluxe).”

Kevin Gates is back at work. Last year, the rapper emerged with his latest body of work, Khaza – a sequel to his #1 debut album, Islah. The body of work came at a time when Gates made plenty of headlines for wild interviews rather than the music itself but Khaza further proved that Kevin Gates remains one of the best in the South. The project boasted no features and showcased his range, musically and emotionally, for an impressive outing that captured everything we love about Kevin Gates’ music.

Since the album dropped, Kevin Gates has slowly released a handful of records and features. However, on Friday, he linked up with T.I. for their new collaboration, “Active.” Tip initially teased the single roughly a year ago but fans have been hoping for an official release. Just as things between T.I. and Boosie began to bubble up, the King Of The South blessed us with the record which shows him and Kevin Gates at their absolute best.

Shortly after his collab with T.I. dropped, Kevin Gates doubled back with the release of his latest single, “Trying 2 Forgive.” The new single marks his follow-up to “Breakfast,” which he unveiled around Valentine’s Day. This time, Gates unleashes a hard-hitting banger that finds him reflecting on self-improvement and transforming into the head honcho in the streets. Yung Lan holds down the production on this one, delivering a triumphant anthem that pairs perfectly with Gates’ baritone melodic and gruff flow.

Between “Breakfast” and “Trying 2 Forgive,” it seems as though Kevin Gates could be preparing to unload the deluxe edition of Khaza in the near future. Kevin Gates began teasing its release in late June with a PDA from his bathtub. Shortly after, he blessed fans with the release of “I Don’t Hit It With The Fork,” which built anticipation even further. Hopefully, we get a release date for the project soon. For the time being, we’ll be listening to “Trying 2 Forgive” on repeat.

Notable Lyrics
I rather be in Georgia with a light skin Barbie
Putting dick all in her back, we making love until the morning
I’m cooking on a Foreman, please don’t look at it alarmin’
I’m a gangster with a mouth full of gold, she love when I’m performin’
