Since his emergence on the dancehall scene, Gaps has generated a buzz with his skillful wordplay, witty metaphors and unpredictable flow. His unique selling proposition is that he’s not afraid to be himself and he incorporates many of his life’s experiences into his music.
He grew up in Gutters, Old Harbour, St Catherine before migrating to live in the United States at age 10. He went to Campus Magnet high school in Queens, New York (formerly Andrew Jackson high school) which is the same alma mater as rapper 50 Cent.
He acquired an associate degree in Liberal Arts, majoring in Physical Education.
Although he is based in New York, Gaps regularly returns to Jamaica to promote his songs, and he plans to carve out his own niche in the Dancehall Game in 2021.
“Right now, mi ah find the right flavour for the streets, everything mi touch have a buzz,” he said.
