The Billboard chart-topping rapper Kevin Gates, sentenced last month to 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to a gun charge in Chicago, is serving his time at the East Moline Correctional Center.

The 31-year-old Gates — whose legal name is Kevin Jerome Gilyard — of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is projected to be released in June 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections online records.

The Chicago Tribune reported late last month that Gates was arrested in Chicago and charged in October 2013. He avoided custody until March.

Gates came to prominence in 2013, and his studio album "Isiah" reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 last year.
