WARNING: Graphic language

Rapper Kevin Gates, best known for his single “I Don’t Get Tired,” has been sleeping with his cousin for the last three months, which apparently hasn’t phased him, as he’s pledged to continue dating the woman, despite a revelation by his grandmother that the two are blood relatives.

The 28-year-old Louisiana-based rapper, legally named Kevin Gilyard, told his 1.3 million Instagram followers about his predicament Wednesday in a series of videos:

Ya’ll look like brother and sister, s–t no!, I’m f–king the s–t out of her. Come to find out she’s my cousin, ya heard me? But I ain’t about to stop f–king with, her s–t the p–sy good, and we click. S–t I ain’t grow up with you, knowing you was my people. I don’t get tired.

He posted the second video, apparently after receiving some negative feedback from commenters, and revealed that it was his grandmother who told him that he and his partner were cousins. The negative feedback seemed to only strengthen his resolve.

He continued:

N–gas be talkin’ like, man, ya’ll gonna stay out my motherf–kin business. So you mean to tell me if you been f–kin with somebody for three months, YA HEARD ME, everything beautiful and your grandmother come tell you one day “you know that’s your cousin,” ya’ll done got the hard part out the way, why f–k up a good thing?

Gates ended his second video post, again stating, “I don’t get tired.”

The rapper, who appears to be rather vocal on social media, gave this “shout-out” to his family on Thursday (no word on whether his girlfriend was meant to be included as part of the family message):

He seems very impassioned in his quest to remind the world that he “doesn’t get tired.” Maybe this music video will help to explain things:
