Popcaan recently added Sound System Selector to his credentials and here is a glimpse of the Unruly Boss in action.
The dancehall deejay clash with JR at last weekend’s FAAWUD sound clash and manages to clinch a victory using a bunch of Vybz Kartel songs. Popcaan has been hounding his disc jockey skills since taking part in the Red Bull Culture Clash in London in 2016. He would’ve taken part in the same event last year in Atlanta, but was unable to make his presence felt due to some issues with his travel documents.
The FAAWUD sound clash between Popcaan and JR was not only friends, but highly entertaining. This is a reminiscence of what an authentic sound system clash in dancehall culture is all about. The 12-minute clip below gives you a mashup of what took place.
Popcaan and Vybz Kartel has had a rocky relationship since the former Portmore Empire became incarcerated in 2011 and disbanded the group. Over the past few years, we’ve seen Kartel take some subliminal shots at his former protege. Despite getting some hate from the Gazanation, Popcaan still always shout-out his former mentor ever so often including last month when he wished him happy birthday and got criticized for it.
In November last year, Popcaan went on a rant on Instagram Live while pushing back at criticisms from fans claiming that he sold out the Gaza. “Go s**k out your mother bout sell out Gaza,” he said. “Pu*** Gaza deh on sale batty man or batty gal. Shaniqua Brown go nyam out your muma. A we build Gaza bumbo hole. Which part Gaza a sell because everybody want to buy the Gaza.”
Perhaps after watching this video clip, Vybz Kartel will feel proud of one of his former students and maybe even make peace with him. Watch the video below.
