Kevin Gates is growing from his past mistakes, and shares the message in his new video for “Walls Talking.”
“I’m a prisoner in my own mind/I feel like these walls talkin’ to me,” he repeats in the catchy hook as the music video shows the rapper in a living room with the walls melting. He leaves the room to a vast desert that walks him through visions of his life.
“If I wasn’t making music, I’d either be dead or in jail right now,” he recently told Billboard of his turbulent journey to a clear heart. “I’d be doing a life sentence or I’d be dead. And I accept those things, because I just want my family and the people that I love to be OK. I accept it. My life is a sacrifice, I don’t even care. It’s for the people that I love, it’s not for me.”
“Walls Talking” is off Gates’ recent album, I’m Him. Watch the video below.
