Gaps 7G urges 'Do the Right Thing'
Dancehall artiste Gaps 7G has released a new club banger dubbed 'Do Di Right Thing' which urges social responsibility in the face of worldwide social upheaval and economic hardship caused by the global pandemic.
“This song was done some time ago, and although it was not intended to be the follow up song for 'Di Benz', with what’s going on in today’s society, it seemed like the right time to send this message. It seems the whole world is in chaos, everything is upside down because of the COVID-19, unemployment, social upheaval, protests in the street, but be strong my people, and just do the right ting. Wear your masks, observe social distancing, keep everyone safe," the artise whose real name is Paul Cardoza Jr, said.
The single, produced by Splintzzboss Records, on the Unlock The Game Riddim, was released earlier this year.
"The fans like this new song, and are raving about the catchy hook, do di right ting," Gaps 7 G said.
There have been more than 34.3 million cases of COVID-19 recorded worldwide with over one million deaths. There have been over 130 deaths recorded in Jamaica from the disease.
In the meantime, Gaps is pushing along with his music career. The artiste first came to public attention when he generated a big buzz with the get-money anthem dubbed 'Di Benz', produced by Crushdem Records.
"Everyone is still cheering for Di Benz song. I’m still fine tuning getting a remix together. I bring something fresh to the game with a bit of New York favour.. and a bit of Jamaican flavour. Right now, the ting up," he said.
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 will be amping up promotion on 'DI Benz'.
"I am coming back to Jamaica this month to push the promotion of my new songs to next level," he said.
