The “Heads High” deejay specifically pinpointed Drake’s latest album Views, saying that the Toronto rapper was using reggae artists and their songs without giving the proper credit.
“So then I’m listening to the record further and at the end of the record when the record done, you can hear the record fin, Beenie Man doing the outro. So I’m like, Drake is rampaning my artists! You using my artists as intro men!”
Vegas also pointed out how Drake may have lifted from reggae artist Popcaan, who was supposed to be on the track “Controlla.”
“I’m listening to the record like, Where’s Poppy? So me say fast forward and at the end of the record again is another sample and the sample is from Popcaan. An old Popcaan record!”
Now Popcaan, who has a close relationship with Drake and also appeared on the If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late track “Know Yourself,” is taking up for Drake’s use of reggae artists.
In a video posted on his social media, Popcaan says Mr. Vegas should not try to disrespect his brother [Drake] because he [Mr. Vegas] doesn’t know anything about Unruly or OVO and he doesn’t need him to defend him.
Dancehall star Popcaan is coming to Drake’s defense after the rap star was called out by Mr. Vegas for jacking Caribbean artists.
The "Heads High" deejay took exception to Drizzy's new album "Views" because he feels the Toronto rapper is unjustly using Reggae artists without giving them credit.

“Don’t try and violate my brother, now,” Popcaan says into the camera.
“You don’t know anything about Unruly or OVO. Mi nuh need you to defend Popcaan.”
The “Ova Dweet” deejay made mention of Vegas’ previous comments about him claiming that he was wearing a dress at Sting.
Popcaan also added that Mr. Vegas’ longtime rival Veteran Dancehall artiste Bounty Killer already told him [Vegas] to leave the youths in music alone.
“This is the truth. Leave the youth alone Vegas,” he added.
