Kevin Gates Quotes About Money, Wealth

 

Money coming, money gotta flip it. I ain’t waiting on nobody, I’mma go get it.

 

Wealth is not of the pocket. It’s of the heart. It’s of the mind. I live like that. You could give me a fish and feed more for a day, but if you teach me to fish, you’ve fed me forever. So that’s really my philosophy with it all.

 

True wealth is not of the pocket, but of the heart and of the mind.

 

Kevin Gates Quotes About Love, Relationship, Marriage

 

If you look at the movie ‘Belly,’ I identify with Sincere the most. I am a gangster. I love my lady to death.

 

Some may consider this a problem, I easily fall in love.

 

I’m not in the game for the wrong reasons. I’m not in the game for the glory. I’m in the game to survive so the people that I love could be straight. I’m a highly intelligent individual.

 

Loves a battlefield it’s not a one night stand.

 

The more I grow in popularity, the lonelier it gets. Because you don’t really know me. You just know this part of me. You fell in love with that. But it’s way more intricate than what meets the surface.

 

Fall in love fast, make sure I handle it delicate

 

I used to really love Fiend, but he stopped. He just stopped. Every time he had a project, every project – ‘There’s One In Every Family,’ ‘Street Life’ – I had to have them. And he just stopped. And that was disappointing, ’cause that was my favorite rapper at one time.

 

Marriage is the most wonderful thing ever.

 

Whatever I have a natural love for or respect or admiration for, I tattoo it on my body. My next tattoo is probably going to be Muhammad Ali. I’ve got Bob Marley, I’ve got Elvis, I’ve got Malcolm X. I’ve got so many tattoos. It’s crazy. I’m really running out of space. But when I go get tattoos, it’s therapeutic for me also.

 

I love God, I love everybody else around me as myself, and I love my enemy.

 

You can learn from a dummy. You can watch a dummy and learn what not to do. I’ve always been an observant individual. You don’t know how much you love something until you can’t do it. That’s one thing I can say that I learned. I learned how much I love music.

 

I love to be clean. I wear the same things, all of my clothes pretty much look the same. I’m a plain and simple type of guy. I don’t really do a lotta busy colors and things of that nature. I feel like less is more.
I love to make music, I love to get tattoos…That’s just what I love. If I wasn’t getting paid I’d still do it.

Kevin Gates Quotes About Life

 

Life is about conduct and how we conduct ourselves. But two wrongs never make a right.

 

I used to really love Fiend, but he stopped. He just stopped. Every time he had a project, every project – ‘There’s One In Every Family,’ ‘Street Life’ – I had to have them. And he just stopped. And that was disappointing, ’cause that was my favorite rapper at one time.

 

I came in the game with a different attitude than I have now. And I had to grow. I had to mature. In that growth and in that maturity, that point of maturity I realized that ay, the people that interview me, we really only having a conversation. And they not from the same walk of life that I am, so my life is super interesting to them.

 

I’m a super sensitive individual also. The smallest thing might stand out to me. I might go make a song about this interview. I live life then rap about it. Who knows what I may say? I just really say what I feel.

 

When I’m in the moment, whatever I’m feeling, I get it all out.

 

My mentality, I guess. I used to deal with things totally differently than the way that I deal with things now. And I believe that comes through growth and maturity. And when you grow, your way of life changes. Everything changes. The things that were interesting at one point, they’re not as interesting now.
