Popcaan is concerned about Dancehall’s ‘crab in a barrel’ state.
The Dancehall star, who is now celebrating the successful launch of his second album Forever, expressed that Jamaican musicians should consider uniting and cooperating with each other for the better of the genre.
During an interview with OnStage host Winford Williams at Reggae Sumfest 2018, Popcaan called for unity among Dancehall artists.
“Me want the youths them to just use this as an example and don’t bother with the hype, and hype up themselves before time you see me,” Popcaan said.
“Because music is way bigger than people think. It’s not about hype and ego, it’s about uniting and making the music go further. The only thing that’s mashing up our music now is lack of unity. As a artist get three songs or four songs, him feel like him bigger than Bounty Killer and Beenie. Remember, you have to always show respect,” he added.

Popcaan also called out the Dancehall community for not showing his album much regards while indicating that his project has been recieving quality support from the Hip-Hop fraternity.
“The hip-hop industry is not like that, them show love to each other,” the deejay chimed.
“Me see people from overseas a post my album cover more than all Dancehall artists. Them thing there stupid,” he asserted.
Popcaan’s new album Forever is now available across all streaming platforms.
