As reported by TMZ, the rapper has been sentenced to 30 more months in jail, stemming from a previous gun charge.
As reported, the Baton Rouge emcee pleaded guilty to charges of felony gun possession earlier today (April 26) and as a result, will serve 30 more months behind bars.
The emcee was previously re-arrested on the same day he was set to get out of jail in March this year, with a past warrant being discovered after he had completed serving a sentence for kicking a female fan during one of his performances.
The outstanding warrant was previously issued because Gates reportedly failed to show up for a court date for the 2013 gun charge.
According to reports, Gates will be transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections to serve his now-extended sentence.
