In an interview with djbooth.com, rapper Kevin Gates made a shocking revelation, delivered so casually the interviewers thought perhaps they misheard him. While doing a promotional drop, Gates revealed he uses heroin.
“I might duck every now and then when I’m on the heroin, but I don’t get tired,” the website claims he said during their sit-down.
The “duck every now and then” bit is something one might describe heroin users of doing since the drug is a depressant.
We honestly can’t think of a time a rapper has admitted to using heroin, but the drug has had it’s place in the world of celebrity over the decades. Jean-Michel Basquiat, Janis Joplin, Peaches Geldof, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Glee’s Cory Monteith all died from heroin related overdoses.
