Kevin Gates: "I ain’t gonna lie. I’d rather not even say [my drugs of choice]. I don’t want it to be an issue. It’s just really one drug, but I don’t go public, like “yeah this is what I do.” It’s just something I do in my personal time. I feel like the world should respect me for it because I’m not endorsing the drug like “yeah, do this!.” I do this for me, I don’t do this for y’all. I don’t think this makes me look cool. I really don’t care what people think about me. Because I’ll never see them, or be around them, or be in the same room with the person who said it. I don’t have arguing competitions. I’m not good at fussing."

"I don’t do the religion thing. I feel like everybody should be respected for the beliefs that they have. That’s what I believe. I love people. I hope that this perspective that I have, the love that I have for people, doesn’t hurt me in the long run. For right now, I can say I really love people. 

"Some of [my family is religious]. I got Catholics, Christians, Jews, Muslims, I know a lot of people. Everybody that I talked to really had the same principles. Having a love for God, having a love for self, having a love for others. That’s what I believe. I treat people how I want to be treated. I believe when you treat someone the way you want to be treated, then that is God."
