The labels Co-Founder Johnson would be a Middle School classmate with the most promising future Artist Kevin Gates at Kenilworth Middle School in Baton Rouge. Johnson noticed that the young and steadily improving Gates was naturally a lyricist and encouraged him to take rapping and his skills more seriously. In 2005 Gates officially signed to Dead Game Records as the labels main artist over half a decade. With proper Financial Support and strategic marketing direction Gates would flourish. Releasing 6 regionally acclaimed mixtape including features with nationally allcaimed Rapper Boosie Bad Azz who was from the same neighborhood as founders Johnson and Jones

In the absence of Gates for 2 years Dead Game would partner with former Koch Entertainment artist Max Minelli to Release albums The Heart of a King and The Leak. In 2011 Gates upon his release from an incarceration resumed his career with a new inspired style and an intense effort to release a multitude of projects in a short period of time. This would garner the notice of Artist Publishing Group APG who would enter into a Joint Venture Partnership with Dead Game allowing Gates to be distributed by Atlantic Records.
