LAKELAND, Fla.—rapper Kevin Gates is in hot water following a video surfacing of him kicking a fan at a club concert on August 28th. Lakeland police charged Kevin Jerome Gilyard with simple battery in regards to the viral video circulating in these cyberstreets. The video has already reached 1.1 million views on the CyberHell site WorldStar Hip hop, and opinions are hot on each side.

In the video a fan, Miranda Dixon,watching Gates perform at Rumors nightclub in Lakeland Florida is seen grabbing for Kevin onstage and missing. She then tries again and grabs his shorts to which he reacts by, According to the affidavit, “delivered a deliberate kick to the victim’s chest/stomach area.”

Miranda said she fell back into the crowd and lost her breathe due to the kick. Other concert goers helped to her feet. She reported the incident to authorities and sought medical treatment on her own.

Of course Dixon plans to press charges, and she seems to have the eyewitnesses, and video proof to do so.  I’ve already discussed how I feel about it on my Facebook Page. Gates’ fanbase is a bunch of goons and killaz, so I’d rather not invite too many of em into my atmosphere. However, I will leave you all with this….It’s amazing what people will rationalize when it’s done over a hip hop beat.
