Popcaan plays live with the Dub Akon band at Scandinavia Reggae Festival this weekend in Copenhagen! Tickets and info here.
He was also recently interviewed by Hattie Collins for Red Bull, discussing his album, to perceptions of Jamaica and shooting The System video:
’Nuff people say Jamaica is the worst place. We have a saying where I grew up, ‘The best come from the worst’. It’s a small place, very small, people say all kind of bad things about it. But I feel it’s how people try to paint a bad picture about Jamaica – why? So much positive things come out of Jamaica. They say Jamaica is a violent place. People come and party and they say ‘If you go to the garrison people will come shoot you’. It’s people trying to say bad things – why, when we have good vibes?
