Driven by personal experiences and beliefs, this album was a highly emotional record, with deep political undertones. This garnered Gaps accolades as a rapper and opened doors for performances and collaborations. In late 2008, he started writing and recording his follow up album, “I’m Not Dead Yet”, which was released in late Spring, 2009. Building on the reputation he earned as one of Fort Lauderdale’s most talented independent rappers, INDY followed the same formula as it’s predecessor.
With a sharper flow and delivery, “I’m Not Dead Yet” featured bangers like “Sunshine State Of Mind”, a love letter to Gaps’ home city, Fort Lauderdale and “Emergency Sirens”, the highly political song which could act as a theme song for an American rebel faction. After the successful release of his second album, Gaps worked on a slew of songs including two that were featured in the free, double single, internet record, “Beat Her Heart Out”. Gaining a full head of steam, Gaps was putting on high energy performances at an alarming rate and hosting a monthly event in the heart of Downtown Fort Lauderdale. In 2011, he cofounded The Party Monsters with friends, and fellow rappers, Protoman, Jabrjaw, Dirty Dem, and Bonus.
The group debuted “Born To Roll”, a remix of the classic Masta Ace song of the same name. The Party Monsters were dubbed “Broward’s hip-hop supergroup” by Broward/Palm Beach New Times-County Grind blog writer, Jasper Delani. While working with The Party Monsters, Gaps also started work on two solo EPs. “Live To Love Another Day” was the first to be finished.
Released in the Spring of 2012, this featured highly emotional songs which highlight a bad break-up, the death of family members and friends and his own self doubt. The second of these projects, “Music For Modern Living & Everyday Situations”, was released in late August. A highly political and experimental hip-hop record, this includes the singles “Fight Song!” and “Blood On The Floor”, which have been featured by the Broward/Palm Beach New Times. 2012 has seen two records by Gaps, a multitude of blog write-ups and a Florida tour with his crew, the Black Locust Society.
He has has been described as “constantly on the grind” and “full of energy”. Never satisfied, Gaps continues to work on music. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
