Former Gaza prefect and Portmore Empire deejay Popcaan has broken his silence on the rumored feud with Vybz Kartel and other members of his former label.

Popcaan also opens up about PG13, why he is not a part of the newly formed crew that includes Tommy Lee and Gaza Slim, his beef with SO Unique Records head Elvis Redwood, the pressing issue of why he has not visited Vybz Kartel since his incarceration, and the recent alleged diss track from Tommy Lee and Vybz Kartel titled “Informa.”

Read Popcaan full statement below.

“The world already knows that my career was launched from the greatest dancehall school and business entity, The Portmore Empire/Adidjaheim Records led by Vybz Kartel. Since Vybz Kartel’s incarceration in September 2011 I remained a loyal and contributing member of this unit until May 2012 when the Portmore Empire was dissolved.”

“Rumors started as early as September 2011 that I had left the Portmore Empire, this was not so. My actions in October 2011 were to seek booking representation as this very important function was no longer viable for me with the incarceration of the head of my management and booking company. To date I have no formal management or booking agreement and only since June 2012, with the dissolution of the Portmore Empire have I engaged the services of a lawyer to put these agreements in place.”

“From September 2011 to present I have worked hard and stayed focused on my career with my main intention to make sure that the music from the Portmore Empire was being released and the brand remained in the forefront of the dancehall music industry. I feel that I did that to the best of my ability with the release of songs like Party Shot, Fry Yiy, Coolie Gal, Bad Mind, She A Gwaan Good, Nuh Sell Out and Step Like Dead and with performances all over the world.”
