Herschel Rush, Gates’ attorney, spoke with TMZ and insists the rapper will be “devoting considerable time and resources talking to troubled teens and sharing anecdotes from his own life in hopes they’ll avoid the same pitfalls.”

Within the past few years, Gates’ life has been riddled with crime as he was first sentenced to six-months in jail for kicking a woman in the chest at one of his concerts. In March, as he was about to be released he was then arrested for a felony gun possession which is the 30-month sentence he was currently serving.
