Kevin Gates has shed a ton of weight since his release from prison in 2018—and apparently the motivation came from quite an interesting place.

“One word—commitment,” Gates began. “But what really did it for me, I had my shirt off and I was holding my partner’s baby and his baby tried to suck my breast. I just was like, ‘I am too fucking fat and I’m a fat slob, I need to lose weight.’ That was the most embarrassing sh*t. I mean, sh*t, even though I’m a big gorilla, I still got feelings too! Man, that shit hurt my fucking feelings. I said, ‘I gotta lose some weight!'”
