Pree this new video from Dancehall dj Popcaan. Shot in Toronto, Canada by Niko, a member of Drakes label OVO.
Speculation is that this video is a sign of future colabs between “Fry Yiy” and Toronto based rapper Drake. It also goes to show the growing trend for collaborations between Jamaica’s dancehall kings and the hip/hop world, including Mavado’ s ties with the MMG group.
Some say these collaborations are helping to promote dancehall culture overseas, while others feel that it’s degrading true yaardi culture, for example, this video is shot in the clubs of toronto depicting a typical hip/hop scene rather than the bruk out vibes we associate dancehall with. I think it’s too early to tell, but one sure thing, this tune mad!
What’s your opinion?
