Last week, Kevin Gates announced from behind bars that he’d be dropping a new project, By Any Means 2, next week, Sept. 22. Now, he’s released a new song off the mixtape called “Beautiful Scars” featuring PnB Rock.
Rock provides a sung hook, that while looking to the past, also aim to look forward and turn trials into successes. Gates provides verses detailing how his own struggles, whether with a lover or with the streets, have affected him and play a part in his interactions. Gates is always one to wear his heart on his sleeve, and PnB Rock follows that lead on the hook. Are you feeling the collaboration?
Last week, Gates also shared the video for “What If,” along with a brief open letter to his fans. “Disallow yourselves to be troubled in my time of absence,” he writes, reminding fans that all great artists have faced struggles throughout their lives.
