  • (knocking) - Hey Kev, we are here
  • to see your gym and fridge.
  • (mellow hiphop music)
  • - Hey, what's going on?
  • This what we gonna do today.
  • Today, you tuned in to Kevin Gates,
  • the world sexiest gangster edition.
  • (bomb explodes) (bell dings)
  • ♪ Hey, yo feel this ♪ I'm gonna show y'all my gym,
  • and I'm gonna show y'all my fridge.
  • Come on, let's go.
  • My biggest problem in life was overcomin' myself.
  • But once I defeated myself,
  • the only thing left was peace.
  • ♪ Took a lot of losses, had to bounce back ♪
  • ♪ She got ass, love it when it bounce back ♪
  • ♪ Came back strong, had to bounce back ♪
  • ♪ Applying pressure, watch a nigga bounce back ♪
  • - [Host] All right Kevin, we are here
  • to see your fridge and then check out your gym.
  • You ready?
  • Let's go.
  • - Before I open my fridge,
  • I'm a tell you this one thing
  • I am human.
  • I am not perfect.
  • Please don't judge me. (laughs)
  • Don't judge me, please 'cause I don't judge.
  • Check it out.
  • Let's get the hard stuff out the way first.
  • I do drink Pepsi.
  • I drink a Pepsi, like, maybe once a week
  • or somethin' like that.
  • That's my reward.
  • That's my cheat.
  • The most important thing, if you dealin' with somebody
  • and your partner has a high, high sex drive,
  • sex can feel draining at times.
  • So, if you feel drained after havin' sex,
  • always drink you some coconut water right afterwards.
  • And the coconut water has a lotta electrolytes in it.
  • Charge!
  • You back in the building.
  • - [Host] Do you take any protein?
  • - I take this.
  • It's called BeLean.
  • It leans you out, and it's also a pre-workout.
  • I tried a lot of other pre-workouts,
  • and I don't like those pre-workouts
  • that give me the jitters.
  • They make me feel like my face,
  • I feel like Tony Montana.
  • I don't like to feel like that.
  • - [Host] So what do you eat after a performance?
  • - Me being Muslim, I only eat one meal a day.
  • So my one meal a day, I guess you others
  • would call it intermittent fasting.
  • My one meal a day may be a steak.
  • Sometimes it just may be a veggie bowl.
  • It just depends on how I feel.
  • - [Host] What time do you usually eat?
  • - It depends.
  • It depends on when I get finished with work.
  • Because I'm an artist, I can't go
  • in the studio on a full stomach.
  • I like to be hungry.
  • I like the music to reflect my hunger
  • 'cause I'm hungry for this shit.
  • I want this shit.
  • - [Host] I see you got a lot of mangoes.
  • - I'm a tell you, I don't want to just get
  • that sexually explicit.
  • But with the mangoes I practice eating pussy.
  • What you want to do is,
  • you want to see if you could pull those
  • microfibers off with just your teeth.
  • You want to tease.
  • And if you could tease,
  • they call that teasing a peach.
  • If you can tease a peach, you can give a woman pleasure.
  • I drink milk thistle.
  • It detox the kidneys.
  • I stopped takin' fish oil.
  • I take C buckthorn now.
  • And what C buckthorn is, it lubricates the joints.
  • It's like an omega.
  • And I noticed it worked better than fish oil for me.
  • I mean, whatever you use for your body, that's what's up.
  • I could just give you my diet.
  • - [Host] Do you eat dairy?
  • - I used to love cow's milk
  • until I discovered oat milk.
  • I noticed that whenever I would drink a lotta milk,
  • like cow's milk, my body would have a lot of mucus.
  • And I don't like mucus.
  • It's gross to me.
  • - [Host] You've had a long journey into fitness.
  • How were you able to successfully change your diet?
  • - I wanted more for myself.
  • I wanted it.
  • I got tired of being the fat guy in the room.
  • I got tired of being a fat slob.
  • I got tired of every time somebody take their shirt off,
  • I make an excuse why I don't think its cool
  • to take your shirt off.
  • I think it's fly.
  • 'Cause it's one thing about sayin' that you're disciplined.
  • But when you see somebody who got a nice body,
  • it shows that you're disciplined.
  • So I like actions.
  • What I utter with my mouth,
  • I feel like my actions should prove.
  • So, like I said, I'm not where I want to be yet.
  • But, hey, I'm damn sure gonna get there.
  • ♪ I'm the greatest ♪
  • (dramatic hiphop music)
  • ♪ Oh, oh ♪
  • ♪ Oh, yeah, oh ♪
  • ♪ I'm the greatest ♪
  • - [Host] All right, Kev, where are we?
  • - I come to the magic mountain
  • every time I get a chance.
  • I love it up here.
  • - [Host] Is this your cardio?
  • - Well, no this isn't my cardio.
  • I look at this as my healing.
  • Like, this is post-workout for me.
  • This is just something I like to do.
  • I'm a outside person.
  • I'm a nature lover.
  • So I do this everyday, everyday that I can.
  • - [Host] Do you have a music playlist you listen to?
  • - I'm not doing it today,
  • but usually I have my headphones on.
  • And I'll listen at whatever production
  • that I like at the time.
  • And I walk up magic mountain,
  • and I get magical ideas,
  • and I go record it in the studio.
  • - [Host] How long does it take you to get to the top?
  • - Maybe ten minutes for me.
  • But it takes, like, a little longer
  • 'cause once I get to the top of the mountain,
  • I like to stand on the of the mountain
  • and flex just be like, "I'm the King of the world!"
  • I am Muhammad Ali!
  • You know I like to get up there.
  • So it may take a little longer
  • 'cause sometimes I like to bask in my own glory.
  • - [Host] Do you take any fitness classes?
  • - I don't even talk about this,
  • but I'm going to say it with y'all.
  • I'm a share it with y'all.
  • When I was in the penitentiary,
  • my celly used to always tell me,
  • "Hey let's go do yoga.
  • "Let's go do yoga."
  • I'm like, "Man, yoga is for pussies
  • "I never want to do yoga."
  • I have a different respect for yoga now.
  • I look at yoga like a journey.
  • And I'm still in the beginning stage of my journey.
  • But I love yoga.
  • (mellow hiphop music)
  • - [Host] What was the inspiration
  • behind your hit song "Push It?"
  • - The inspiration behind "Push It" was a lot of times
  • in life we are our biggest challenges.
  • We stand in our own way.
  • And for the longest, I've always stood in my own way,
  • whether it been from my insecurities
  • or me bein' too sensitive to certain situations
  • or me bein' selfish and wantin' things to go my way
  • and not learnin' how to coexist with things.
  • And with he song "Push It," it was me pushin'
  • all of those things to the side.
  • Pushin' through all the hurt.
  • Pushin' through all the depression
  • and really tryin' to become the best version
  • of me that I could ever become.
  • And, like I say, the beautiful thing
  • about having body dysmorphia is
  • you could never see yourself as perfect.
  • So I don't even allow myself to get depressed about that.
  • I just work hard.
  • I'm Muhammad Ali!
  • I'm the king of the world! (laughs)
  • Mighty.
  • (upbeat hiphop music)
  • Yeah, I just finished walking on magic mountain.
  • And it was (growls) very, very, very.
  • I just feel like I did something.
  • It was good.
  • But anyway, long story short.
  • Usually I get up at 2:00 a.m. in the morning.
  • And that's when I go do
  • I guess some weight training.
  • I do my pull ups.
  • I do my core exercises.
  • Light days I do calisthenics, like garage calisthenics,
  • such as pull ups, push ups, dips.
  • I like that, it just keep me tight and right.
  • Follow me.
  • - [Host] All right, now it's time
  • for our rapid fire questions.
  • 7:00 a.m. workout or 7:00 p.m. workout?
  • - I prefer a 2:00 a.m. workout.
  • - [Host] Squat or deadlift?
  • - Both.
  • - [Host] Favorite song on your playlist?
  • - "Push It."
  • - [Host] Cross fit, yea or nay?
  • - Uh, yes.
  • I'm doin' cross fit now.
  • - [Host] Pull ups or chin ups?
  • - Both.
  • - [Host] Cardio or weights?
  • - Both, uh, cardio.
  • - [Host] Big legs or big arms?
  • - Neither.
  • I wanna be proportioned.
  • - [Host] Biggest compliment?
  • Jacked, ripped, swole, or cut?
  • - I'm cut like that.
  • - [Host] If you could work out with anyone in the world,
  • dead or alive, who would it be?
  • - Muhammad Ali, of course, silly.
  • Hey, look, I gotta get on with my day.
  • It was great havin' you.
  • But now I need you the leave.
  • Before you can't leave.
