The “Everything Nice” deejay dispelled rumors that he is out out tracks.
“Mi did tek a break while I put my album out. I was promoting my album so, some likkle people start get bright and talk stupid things like Popcaan dont have no songs.
I was born to do music, when it comes on to music I’m very stupid,” said Popcaan.
“So, If you sober inna music, you cya challenge Popcaan because I’m never sober. So mi do thing that other people not going to do. So, that is how I keep myself, always active and always hitting. The only way you wont hear Popcaan hitting is if Popcaan is not voicing.” he added.
Jamaican MC 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 big records in 2011, from ‘Only Man She Want’ to ‘Raving’, Popcaan became the first dancehall artist since Sean Paul to have his track playlisted on the BBC and has just been tipped as one of their ‘Hot 20 for 2012′.
He joined 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 he dropped his debut album on Mixpak, executive produced by Dre Skull and featuring additional productions from Dubbel Dutch, Anju Blaxx, Jamie YVP and Adde.
