Kevin Gates talked about recently wanting to kill himself because he didn't feel loved.


“I’ma say something on this interview that I’ve never said before. December 10th through the 12th was the hardest for me [last] year," he said on the Big Facts podcast. "See, I don’t do the, ‘Man, I’m ’bout to kill myself.’ I don’t want no attention. I was going the way of the samurai. Just smash myself because I was to the point I ain’t wanna live no more ... I wasn’t happy ... As men, when you a provider and you not feeling like you being celebrated in the proper manner, you feel like you only being tolerated."

Gates then said he planned one more trip to the gym before committing suicide and that's when he ran into a fan.

“White boy walked up on me, he like, ‘Man, your music the only thing that make this crazy world make sense,’" the rapper explained. "I was like, ‘Man, the world’s a cruel place. Trust me, I know.’He was like, ‘Man, I was worried about you because you had disconnected your Instagram and your Twitter. The world needs you because your music done kept me from committing suicide so many times.’ I say, ‘Listen, I swear to God, right now I’m ’bout to go push my sh*t off. You the only one I’m telling.’ You know what that dude do? He cried and he grabbed me and he said, ‘If you do that, so many people gonna take their own life ’cause you all we got.’ This show you how God work through people."

Any reaction to Gates' story?
