Kevin Gates’ legal woes are far from over.

On Wednesday, after spending 180 days behind bars for kicking a female fan in the chest, Kevin Gates was released from Polk County Jail in Florida. Unfortunately, Gates’ freedom came to an end rather quickly.

Less than 24 hours after being discharged, Gates boarded a flight to Chicago and turned himself over to authorities at Cook County Jail for an outstanding warrant on a weapons charge. Apparently, the “Islah” rapper failed to appear in court for a separate 2013 gun case on two different occasions.

Originally, Gates was scheduled to be extradited to Chicago within 30 days, but during his hearing he waived extradition and accepted the transfer without requesting a new hearing.

Allegedly, Gates turned himself in to get time served when he’s sentenced in his gun case. He is currently being held without bond, and is set to appear back in court on April 3.

Gates’ wife, Dreka, hasn’t given any updates on her husband’s incarceration. However, she has asked fans to pray for him and warned them that the media is seeking attention and doesn’t always report facts.
