The Unruly boss posted a pic of himself on his Instagram accounts on Friday. “1time fi the unruly fans them #unruly,” the deejay wrote. Diddy commented on the pic with a gang sign emoji. You can see the exchange below. Popcaan has been having a great year and next month he has a chance to create history by winning the MOBO award for Best Reggae Artist three years in a row. He won that award for the last two years and is the hot favorite to win it again this year.
Poppy is a close friend of Drake who has beef with Diddy. The two rap titans got into a fight in 2014 outside Liv nightclub in Miami. Sources say Diddy confronted Drake over the beat for his single “0 – 100.” The Bad Boy rapper first recorded a song on the beat that was never released and then the producer gave Drake the beat for “0 – 100.” Drizzy ended up having to go to the ER at the night of the fight for a dislocated shoulder. The two have since made peace but then the Toronto rapper took more shots at Diddy earlier this year when he hooked up with Jennifer Lopez.
Popcaan has a new single out now, “Can’t Box,” where he responded to recent rumors that he was boxed in the face recently by rival deejay Mavado. The “Stray Dog” deejay is eyeing some major investment in his native parish St. Thomas after recently leading a protest in the parish over bad roads. He recently met with St Thomas, Member of Parliament for Eastern St Thomas Dr Fenton Ferguson to discuss ways to uplift the parish and they both agreed that more investment is needed.
Popcaan has his eyes set on a major investment in St. Thomas, a move he hopes will drive development in the rural Jamaican parish.
Last month, the Unruly Boss met with St Thomas, Member of Parliament for Eastern St Thomas Dr Fenton Ferguson where the two discussed the bad roads in the parish and the need for development. A rep for the dancehall star told Dancehall HipHop that he plans on not just talking but take action and is planning to use his own money to invest in the community.
“We have a number of ideas that we are planning to act on and so far we are getting outside investors interested in our mission,” his rep said. “Poppy spoke in depth with the MP and the two have agreed that the parish needs some development of infrastructure and business activity. It’s almost like St. Thomas is being left behind and this has been going on for years where we are neglected by politicians.”
Popcaan leads a protest last month in St. Thomas where he called for the government to fix the deplorable roads in the parish. “We have been trying to get the Government’s attention for a while now, and still no change,” Popcaan said. “St Thomas is a parish where we don’t have a lot of things, but right now, we’re just asking for the road.”
