KEVIN GATES: Gets 30 Months

 2 Chainz just raised the bar for Mother's Day presents -- by getting his mom a brand new house...for the second time in five years.

The Atlanta-bred MC hit up Instagram to post, "So I bought my moms a new house today for no reason. Well, it is a reason, she my momma! I bought her a house in 2012 before I knew I was gone be one of the biggest artists out here... I love you mom you deserve it"

To prove there's no jealousy in the family, the rapper's Aunt June messaged him with a note of appreciation, saying, "I am glad that u are blessed to take care of your mom, which she deserves. All the obstacles she and I have been through, God. So fit for us both to be blessed. I am very proud of u. Continue to stay humble and watch what God will do.”

TMZ reports that X outright canceled his Tuesday night gig in Santa Ana, California and said he was "postponing" shows scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, without offering specifics. He did something similar last year when an allegedly drug-related asthma attack put him in the hospital.

The news isn't entirely surprising, given reviews of X's performance at last weekend's Ruff Ryders reunion show in Brooklyn -- where he reportedly forgot lyrics, went into odd rants and, at one point, yelled, "Don't expect me to be a [bleeping] role model."

Gates has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for felony gun possession. He appeared in court in Chicago today to plead guilty to the charge, which actually goes back to 2013. Last month, an arrest warrant popped when he was being processed for release after serving time in Florida for kicking a woman in the face at a concert.
