It's no secret that Kevin Gates always keeps it real no matter what. Whether it be about dating his cousin or a legal situation, he's always a straight shooter in life. While Gates' realness won't be a surprise to anyone, his love for Adele's "Hello" might. Not only does Gates love the song, but it also apparently reminds him of key moments in his life, good or bad. To get all of his true feelings on the track, Sirius XM had Gates rant about his life and past pain while Adele was playing in the background. It's kind of strange, but also gives listeners a close look at Gates' past struggles and how he's grown as an artist. Listen to the emotional experience below.
