Dreka Gates is the wife and manager of recently released rapper, Kevin Gates.
In addition to managing the everyday ins and outs as a wife and mother, Dreka invest s tons of time, energy and money into multiple self-made ventures. The mother of two is taking her turn by stepping out of her shell to allow her supporting fans a glimpse into her world.
“It’s my time to step out of my everyday life of being this driving force behind artists and helping them bring their ideas, visions, and dreams to life, to me basically being the “artist” and marketing myself, and all of my “creations.” But don’t get it twisted, I’m still running my label and working with other artists but I want to have a little fun too and it’s totally ok to be a little selfish sometimes!”
Throughout her career, Dreka has served as the Creative Director, and Curator for hundreds of photo shoots for artists from her label, Bread Winners Association. She is currently focused on launching her own clothing line, Polished Eccentric this summer – a clothing line which will cater to women of all sizes from XS-3X.
“I’m not a big fan of “fast fashion” so I created a quality clothing brand that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I’m one of those people who spend hundreds of dollars on sweats , good t-shirts , basic everyday pieces and while I can’t say that I will stop, I will do it a little less now that I have my own quality pieces to wear.”
Be on the lookout for Dreka’s upcoming skincare line too.
