In his latest interview with Trinidad and Tobago Radio Network Limited (TTRN), Popcaan said that Yung Thug is shaky, despite doing a collaboration “Good Times,” with the rapper.
“I actually got a full song enuh, and they was telling me about another artist would be featured on that song [Good Times] but I did know who it was at the moment because you done know how them do fi them thing them, them reach out to other people and after a time we hear that it was Yung Thug, and it did tek a while fi go through still because you done know we from Jamaica so we affi run people file enuh, you zeet,” said Popcaan.
“So, yeah it wasn’t really my choice because Yung Thung kinda shaky and a we say straight you zimi. Well, you know its music so, and it a very big song enuh,” he added.
Popcaan burst onto the scene in 2010 on the biggest dancehall tune of the year, ‘Clarks’.
As Vybz Kartel’s protege, the 23-year old quickly proved himself as one of the most talented up-and-coming vocalists in the genre, lending his distinctive voice to an arsenal of bashment hits, from ghetto laments to party smashers.
After a string of massive records in 2011, from ‘Only Man She Want’ to ‘Raving’, Popcaan became the first dancehall artist since Sean Paul to have his songs playlisted on the BBC and has just been tipped as one of their ‘Hot 20 for 2012′.
He enlisted Mixpak in 2012 with his first collaborative single with Dre Skull, ‘Get Gyal Easy’, followed by his cut on the Kling Klang riddim, ‘So We Do It’, as well as ‘The System’ on the Loudspeaker Riddim.
In 2014, Popcaan released his debut album on Mixpak, executive produced by Dre Skull and featuring additional productions from Adde, Dubbel Dutch, Anju Blaxx and Jamie YVP.
