Rapper Kevin Gates has filed for a restraining order against his parole officer, after being released in January. Gates served 9 of his 30-month sentence, and was place on strict probation when released. As a part of his probation, he has limits on his travel, something his parole officer will not allow him to do.
Kevin is seeking freedom from his parole officer, Ned Swartz, after he denied Kevin’s trade, requests for the next couple of months. Not being able to travel is stopping Kevin’s income, and touring is his main source. Since January, Kevin has only been granted two travels. Not only has this stopped Kevin’s money, but hindering him from seeing his kids.
Kevin claims he has followed all rules, and feels he is simply being treated unfairly. Kevin has a few appearances coming up at Rolling Loud, and JMBLYA festivals in May, the Common Ground Festival, and he is set to perform at the 2018 BET Awards.
