Since Gates’ incarceration, his wife Dreka has been taking care of his music business. 

She has been supporting her husband through thick and thin and is staying on the top of her game to give Gates’ fan hope in his absence. 

Talking about this, she said, “Kevin makes so much music. We’ll pick things that he recorded years ago because at that time when he recorded it, it was ahead of his time and the fans probably wouldn’t expect it. And it’s all about a vibe. You have to have something for the ladies, you have to have something for the day one fans to go out and get the project, the street stuff, it’s just about capturing that vibe. It’s always fun because we get to ride around and listen to music. It’s always a good time with us.”
