Popcaan’s new song is called Dutty Dread” which is reminiscent of when Bounty Killer sung “Bounty nuh fraid a nuh likkle dread boy” during his little spat with Sizzla Kalonji. Popcaan lyrics are on point for the most part, except for the places where is reusing some of his mentor Vybz Kartel lyrics; for example he talks about Mavado begging friend in Portmore which we already heard from Vybz Kartel. He also talks about the entire world knows that Mavado is a barber… YAWN.
One lyrical shot does hit the target head on; that is when he says Mavado is always begging for a verse on all is songs.
All in all this could turn out to be a very good lyrical shot and could breathe some well needed life back into dancehall. It is difficult to decide who is winning this round between Vado and Popcaan but many fans on the popular dancehall forum, DHR, believe that Mavado is in the lead. One thing is for sure though, when it comes to Mavado, Popcaan is no Courage the Cowardly Dog. If only he could get enough lyrical courage to answer Mr. Vegas.
