Popcaan On Vybz Kartel Life Sentence, “Its’s Sad”

Popcaan is perhaps the biggest artist to rise from under Vybz Kartel wings. But the former Portmore Empire deejay has been getting some bashing from Gaza fans in recent months for abandoning his mentor after his arrest in 2011.

Earlier this year Vybz Kartel released a statement condemning Popcaan and Tommy Lee for what he called a betrayal.

In the lengthy statement, Vybz Kartel says both artists are no longer members of the Portmore Empire and should refrain from saying their members of the Gaza.

This is one of a few times Popcaan has spoken out about his thoughts on Vybz Kartel conviction and subsequent life sentence.

“It’s straight sadness,” Popcaan told Winford Williams of OnStage. “It’s not a good thing for the music because Vybz Kartel is the main artist that really hold up the business on a level so without Vybz Kartel things are kind of different. So it’s all sadness all the way around because Vybz Kartel bring out Popcaan in the world so me and them man their thing different still.”

Popcaan also opened up about his career on the international stage.

      • Then why don’t more J’can men partake in something so amazing?

      • Roflmao don’t sey that too loud the dudes here don’t like that kind of talk. lol

      • Since when did you care what they like?!

      • Hey you still alive? lol I don’t care.I was kidding but you and I know they can’t handle any kind of talk about oral sex or should I say cunnilingus roflmao.

      • You can call it whatever you wish to call it. I call it foreplay!

      • It better be shaved roflol

      • Just the way I like it! Nice and neat, salena.

      • Roflmao you know they coming for us lol. in 54321 lol

      • I don’t care! I can handle them. They only wish they could do the things I can do. Their puritanical upbringing prevents them from openly expressing their feelings and desires…so they remain in the closet like the homosexuals that they love to murder.
        Watch! If a man steps to me about what I’ve written here, I will punish the hypocrite to no end.

      • LOL

      • I couldn’t help but notice the absence of the puritanical hypocrites in this thread. I guess they know better than to tread in these treacherous waters.

        A man once asked me if I would prefer to be feared, or respected. I chose feared.

      • So no landing strip no cool designs? No __ was here messages? lol

      • Landing strip is good. Imagination is definitely a plus, and not a minus in my book.

      • I’m like shave that sh8t all off lol. I can’t watch ‘coughs’ a video with some hairy dude. I got to find the shaved dude. There’s no telling what’s going on roflmao.

      • Ohh! Baby…don’t make me say it.

      • lol say what? say it lol I think we’re the only ones up.

      • I’m hungry!

      • You’re insane lmao

      • I know. That’s what all you women say about me. Yet, they still keep cumming back for more.
        Go figure!

      • lol @ the cum part. You know there’s going to be a lot of bytching come morning. Don’t have too much fun with yourself roflmao;) nite nite

      • I ain’t worried about all that! What worries me is the moderators who have their itchy puritanical finger on the delete post button. All this may be gone by the morning. If not, I will be in full attack mode ready to pounce on the first hypocrite who dares to say a derogatory word about something so f#cking amazing.

        Hey, salena! We really gave them something to b!tch about, didn’t we?

      • lol I don’t think it was that graphic what we talked about. They really delete sh8t. I’ve seen much worst on TV.

      • Yup!
        I was just warning you so you wouldn’t be shocked if, and when they do decide to delete our posts.

        I can’t wait till the first hypocrite chimes in, tho. It’s going to be a bloody massacre.

      • read all salena and your posts…LOL

      • You like? I’m still trying to recover from laughing so damn hard!

      • Gloria Thompson

        Luv it, read all, u and salena had me dying. Kept looking but no backlash yet…u guys r sooo naughty…;-)

      • Yeah…we’re naughty, but we were nice.
        Those who would lead the backlash started backing fist instead. It’s just what hypocrites do in the confines of their darkened rooms.

      • Gloria Thompson

        Lol, for real

      • Gloria Thompson

        Ziggy, want u to read this article. Homo Thugs Gun Toting Gays Drive Fear in Citizens of Garrison Communities…just put Jamaica news first. Tell me what u think.

      • All this time I was thinking that gays in Jamaica lived under the umbrella of constant fear. Now I know that it’s the homophobic hypocrites who are living in fear.

        It’s about time gays in Jamaica fought back. Too many have been murdered for no good reason. I mean, forget about passing judgement on Jamaica’s homosexual community…who are we to say who this bad man, or that, badman are to have sex with?!
        Those who live in and around Gem Road/Texton Road area of South St Andrew should really mind their own business, and not bother with who a next man sleeps with. Apparently, it can be real hazardous to one’s health.

      • Gloria Thompson

        Yes, just noticed u read the article…;-) they are now giving back some of what they got all these years.

      • Gloria Thompson

        Yea, both of u started their lonely night…LOL

      • Thnx for the fun lol don’t have too much fun with yourself ;)

      • I gotta save that for tomorrow afternoon. I got a landing strip to touch down on, and I’m gonna be hitting it real hard, and often.

        Take care, salena.

      • roflmao goodnight dude lol

  5. Like Popcaan…

  6. Lord knows why Poppy distance himself but I think all getto yuths- fi succeed -have fi stray way from any negitivity and bad vibes….even if that means leaving love ones behind.

    • jackie stephenson

      He distance himself cause he couldnt bare to share the spotlight all those dancehall boys cant bare to share the fame they wanna number 1 old idiot dem

  7. poppy lrg up yuhself bredren, ratingz, gwan excel and uplift ppl, mi can seet seh u nah pree nuh fckry

  8. poppy u sound foolish go visit the man

    • We really don’t know what happen between Kartel and himself .

    • jackie stephenson

      I know right this is a state of emergency cut the crap stop the badmind and retaliations and go visit Vybz show him your respect he already got 35 years and even with that he doesnt neccesarily will get parole. I wish these artist would share the stage and stop it with their bad man nonsense one day dancehall will die we will enter into a new era.

  9. The best thing Popcaan ever do for his career is steer clear of Vybz Kartel. We all see what Kartel did to Tommy Lee.

  10. Popcaan is happy inside, he was net on the chopping block.
