Macbeth is too Cocky!
Kevin Gates and Macbeth have a few things in common. The whole theme of Macbeth is basically Macbeth killing everyone who stands in his way to the throne of Scotland. Since Macbeth is such a psycho killer you don't really know who you can trust. For example Banquo was really close to Macbeth but since him and his sons stood in Macbeth's way they had to die. The main reason that Macbeth failed was the fact that he was too confident in himself and he was sure that he couldn't fail. Kevin Gates sometimes gets to confident in himself and doesn't really take the time to think about how the choices he makes in the moment will effect him later on. "Late night, when alone, can't sleep
I got too many problems
The weight of the world on my shoulders
Pray that heaven do something about it...
The friends I got 'round me
Wonder which one of them sour"(Gates).
In another song Kevin references to himself in the beginning, acknowledging that he messed up because he wasn't thinning and he took his situation for granted. So far Kevin hasn't gone as far as to be so cocky that he gets killed but he did find himself involved in a lawsuit because of something that happened at one of his concerts. Kevin Gates and Macbeth are similar because they've both made choices that has gotten them in trouble and the only person that can be blamed for their choices is themselves.
