Kevin Gates has left his Instagram followers reaching for the Visine after sharing a graphic clip of a live birth on social media.
The “Really Really” lyricist reposted the NSFW video on his Instagram Story on Sunday (May 7), which originated from the @indiebirths IG account that details midwifery work and often shares clips of at-home births.
“The Most Beautiful thing on earth is the gift of Life [palms up together and heart hands emojis],” Gates captioned the clip, which shows a mother delivering her baby into the father’s hands.
The blowback was swift, with many unsuspecting fans sending out warnings to those who had yet to stumble on Gates’ IG Story.
“Don’t watch Kevin gates insta story don’t do it,” warned one fan on Twitter, while another echoed that sentiment and wrote: “DO NOT LOOK AT KEVIN GATES INSTAGRAM STORY. TRUST ME.”
“Why did I watch Kevin gates story,” one disgruntled fan wrote alongside a clip of Rick and Morty sobbing.

Gates has yet to respond to any of the backlash, but the Baton Rouge rhymer is no stranger to unsettling fans with his bizarre interests. In January, he admitted to drinking a cup of a woman’s urine while operating a motor vehicle, and said he loved the taste because she was “super clean.”
In a bizarre interview with Fancy Talk Show, Gates was asked if he’d ever partaken in any Golden Showers during sex. The “Thinking With My Dick” rapper adamantly spoke about how he enjoyed drinking women’s pee even when the connotation wasn’t sexual.
“I love for a woman to piss in my mouth,” he said. “I love for a woman to piss in my mouth that’s beautiful … I had a woman pee in a cup while I was driving and I drink it, right there. Because there was just nothing — I was so infatuated with this woman to where there was nothing about her that was nasty.”
He continued: “She super clean, she like me she drink nothing but water all day so her piss ain’t got no taste.”
After a brief conversation about whether or not drinking urine could help a human survive in the desert, Gates confirmed he’s had a threesome, but said he’s foggy on just how many partners he’s actually had in the bedroom at the same time.
“I had went to a swindlers resort and it was an orgie, but I didn’t participate in it. It was just beautiful being in that environment. Like everybody being naked, everybody being free, and it was just beautiful being in that environment…We did this other thing where they had fluffers come in and fluff us.”
On the music side of things, Gates recently dropped off his new single “Do It Again” exclusively on YouTube. The new track arrives after he dropped off the single “Breakfast” back in February.
