Dancehall icon Gully Bop is seemingly back on his feet and more active in the studio than ever. According to Bop who spoke to the Jamaica Star, “Mi want a Grammy, and this album fit the Grammy.”
He went on to express that the concept is different, he also calls out some of the names of the songs that will be on the project such as Nah Badda Dead, Stay Far Away, Jah Children and We Have Dreams.
It’s a motivational album, the 57 years old explains, he did all the 12 songs after recently being released from the hospital where he did hernia surgery. Bop outlined that he is serious about 2022 because “pure foolishness” took place in 2021 and he is not about to “idle out ” his music career.
To kick off the proceedings he stated that he will be realising one of the songs this week, the song titled “Nah Badda Dead”. Gully Bop says that the song was inspired by recent rumours that he passed away.
“Mi waan dah song yah fi hit,” he expressed to the reporter. “Why you’d want a good man like Gully Bop dead?” he went on to question. The outspoken St. Andrew entertainer released his first project in 2019 titled “Rumours”.
The “Wuk affa me” artiste earlier stated that he does not focus on death because when that happens is when it comes, and death also happens if a person who is sick stays in bed all the time. The deejay is saying he is born to live nonetheless and that nobody else but God can kill you.
Gully Bop is well known for his unique rise in Dancehall music, which saw him as one of the main acts on Sting 2014, which has stamped itself as one of the best performances ever at the biggest one-night show to be held in Jamaica.
Gully Bop is managed by Jacqueline Hunt.
