Kevin Gates just found out he’ll be spending the next few years behind bars on a gun charge. Get those deets, plus why DMX is cancelling some upcoming tour dates inside…

Things have gone from bad to worse for rapper Kevin Gates.

The “I Don’t Get Tired” rapper was reportedly sentenced to 30 months in prison on a weapons charge from 2013. You’ll recall, Kevin was set be released from a Florida jail back in March, but a warrant for his arrest in Illinois popped up on the day he was supposed to be released. He served a six-month sentence for kicking a female fan in the chest.

Once he was notified of his warrant, he trekked it to Illinois to turn himself in. And now he’s stuck there. Apparently, he failed to appear in court TWICE on the gun case from 2013, so that’s why a warrant was issued. He’ll be transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections to serve out his sentence.

Damn homie.

In other unfortunate rapper news…

Is DMX spiraling out of control again?

We sure hope not, but some folks in his camp are alluding it might possibly be the case.

X was suppose to hit the stage in several cities, but he has canceled them due to a “medical emergency.” The NYC rapper was supposed to rock the stage in Santa Ana last night (April 25th), but concertgoers were told the show had been cancelled.

According to TMZ, X’s show in L.A. tonight and San Diego on Thursday have been postponed until further notice. The site claims the people closest to him have been concerned about his health and fear he may relapse. We all know he’s battled substance abuse in the past.

Fans who attended the Ruff Ryderz Reunion at the Barclays Center last weekend claim X “half a**ed” his performance. Not only that, he went on a few rants that left everyone scratching their heads. FYI--His ex-wife Tashera Simmons was backstage and showed him mad love before he hit the stage.

Peep a few clips from his rant below:





Prayers up for X.
