Popcaan has confirmed that his new album is almost ready.
The Unruly Boss has been quietly working on the follow-up to his 2014 album Where We Come From. The deejay confirmed on Instagram yesterday that his next body of work is coming soon. “Album getting closer and closer .. #unruly,” he wrote. There aren’t a lot of details available about the project and the deejay’s camp wasn’t forthcoming when DancehallHipHop reached out for more details. Sources only told us that it is coming sometime this year, possibly by summer.
Popcaan’s debut album Where We Come From was released on June 10, 2014, and all signs are pointing to another June release for the “Everything Nice” deejay. His last album spawned a number of hits including “Love Yuh Bad,” “Addicted,” “Hold On,” “Everything Nice,” and the title track. We’re told that he has been working on the new album over the past year which explains his reluctance to release new music.
The last time Popcaan released a new song was in November last year when he released “Rich & Bad” a song produced by Buju Banton son Markus. That track will likely make it to his new album.
Aside from locking down in the studio to work on his new project, Popcaan is currently sharpening his acting chops after landing a key role in the upcoming Netflix film “The Intent 2.” He will play a villain in the film along with famed Jamaican actor Louie ‘Ox’ Rankin. “Big dreams wey me have thank god me still living it,” Poppy wrote while showcasing a clip from the movie set.
Last month, the “Party Shot” deejay went on an Instagram rant while interacting with his fans on Live. During his rant, he curses out Alkaline and a Vendetta fan who asked him to give his dancehall rival a shout-out. “Alkaline a batty boy bout big up Alkaline wha happen to you pu**y,” Poppy said. The “Pretty Girl Team” deejay never responded until now.
Mavado posted a video from one of his recent performances on Instagram yesterday with the caption, “The girls love bad boys.” Alkaline cosigned the statement and used the opportunity to take a shot at Popcaan. “Rich badness anuh fi di clown dem,” Alka wrote in the comment section.
In case your at a loss as to why his statement is a shot at the Unruly Boss, I will inform you that Popcaan released a song last month titled “Rich & Bad.” The two dancehall deejays have been beefing since last year, but their feud reached a boiling point earlier this year when Alkaline released a scathing diss track, “Microwave.” Popcaan never responded to that diss record, except to take a few shots at his rival in a few songs released later in the year and also on social media.
There are some talks that Mavado and Alkaline are working on a new diss track aimed at Popcaan and Vybz Kartel.
Popcaan has a clear message for his enemies and that is he is “Rich & Bad.”
The Unruly Boss teamed up with producer Markus Myrie, Buju Banton son, for the new dancehall banger. “Pu**y dem diss man a die out / Can’t diss one and fly out / New submachine man try out / Rich and bad, yeah,” Popcaan deejay over a drum heavy beat. “The Killy dem make a murder step / Assault rifle a beat, so a murder make / And anuh no likkle girl a step / Hundred buss dem head with the Intratec.”
This marks the second single released by Popcaan this month. He also drop the visuals for his gangsta anthem “El Chapo” earlier this month, sending a signal that he is ready for war. Since last year he has been beefing with Mavado and Alkaline and this new track “Rich & Bad” would make for a clever diss record although he didn’t released it as a diss.
