Big Gates is not some certified boss. He was middle management. Yeah he went to jail, but ask them niggas in Plant City, Gainesville, Dade County or Lil Haiti what they think of him. In fact since you use to stay there you should know that the niggas who run Fort Meyers laugh at the idea that Gates is some super thug. Did he put in some work? Yes. But you're trying to make it seem like he is a super goon. Anyone who know anything about Plies does not fuck with him.
