Kevin Gates is having a big year. Recently, his song from 2013, “Thinking With My D*ck,” went viral on TikTok and subsequently hit the charts almost a decade after it was released. He then leaned into the song’s success by performing it with the man who went viral by vibing to his music. Gates has also announced a new studio release, KHAZA, and a North America tour. He’s already teased a single off the forthcoming album, “Big Lyfe.”
Gates is following up that single with a new song, “Bad For Me.” It’s a tune about a romance that probably shouldn’t happen but feels too good to pass up. In typical Kevin fashion, the short song is filled with a plethora of infectious hooks. The production adds to the ominous feeling of Gates’ bars, leaning on moody, reverbed guitars.
