Kevin Gates on Monday night gave a sold out Varsity Theatre a taste of what's to come when the Baton Rouge-raised emcee previewed his upcoming album, "I'm Him."

"I'm Him," which is expected to be released later this year, is Gates' second full-length studio album, a follow-up to his 2016 twice-platinum selling debut, "Islah." At the Varsity, Gates introduced each new song by telling stories or explaining the track before performing part of the song, with well-known Gates classics mixed in.

This is the first time in five years that Gates has played the Varsity Theatre. Check out photos from the show below.
