2:34 PM PT -- Kevin will remain behind bars without bond until he's extradited back to Illinois.
Rapper Kevin Gates got a kick in the face himself today, after he got re-arrested as authorities were about to let him out of jail.
Gates had just completed his sentence for kicking a woman in the face at a Florida show back in 2015. He was sentenced to 6 months but was scheduled to get out a month early.
Today was the day Kevin would taste freedom again, but as he was being processed out of jail authorities found an outstanding weapons-related warrant, so he went back inside the pokey.
Gates has a hearing set for later today. It's unclear what will happen.
