Kevin Gates opens up about what it was like being chosen for XXL's 2014 Freshman list, and explains that he used to look at the magazine while he was in jail and vowed to be on the cover. He adds that he always knew in his heart that he would land the cover, and gives praise to a "higher power" for making it happen.

When asked about Game's XXL Freshman cover diss, "Bigger Than Me," Kevin says that he heard about the song, but never listened to it. The Louisiana native adds that "penitentiary rules are still in effect" with his career right now and he believes that it's his time to shine, not to bother himself with what others are saying about him.
