Over the past three weeks the Internet has been blowing up with allegations that dancehall singjay DeMarco's recent song, Kingston City, (on Rick Ross's Stay Schemin rhythm), is a dis song aimed at Popcaan.
A very bold DeMarco spoke to The STAR from the recording studio where he was working on his upcoming mixtape called Nuh Dirt, and disclosed that fans are crediting the song as a dis, however, it is what it is.
"People a sey a Popcaan mi a dis, well a Popcaan mi dis, whol' heap a dem tief mi style including him," DeMarco said.
DeMarco explained that the song was a freestyle intended to be a part of his upcoming mixtape and he did not intentionally try to start a feud. However, if persons took it as a dis, he was lyrically ready to defend himself.
"It was a freestyle I did for ZJ Chrome and my mixtape, the world like it suh dem sey is a dis to Popcaan, so I guess it is so, I guess it's a dis to Popcaan," he laughed.
Some of the lyrics in Kingston city says:
'Nuh mek mi mek forensic white chalk the street, yaaooow! Dem tief mi style and nuh ask mi fi it, mi hear behind mi back some bwoy a beat off dem beak but tell dem wey mi si heart nuh leap.'
Popcaan also released a song called Fry Yiy which is also rumoured as one taking aim at DeMarco. In his song, Popcaan deejays:
'The whol place a sey Fry Yiy, some bwoy fi write some hit song and stop cry.'
According to DeMarco, however, Popcaan is not as popular as he is and should choose his words more carefully.
"Him a sey artiste fi write some hit song and stop cry, but him nuh mek no song big like I Love My Life, I got 25 million views on YouTube and I have been all over the world ," DeMarco bragged.
DeMarco also joked about Popcaan's new moniker Fry Yiy, saying, "A gyal alone change dem eye and wear contacts and from yuh change yuh eye yuh cyah si. Dem nuh badda dan mi big toe, him nuh have nuh lyrics," he laughed. DeMarco also revealed that he recorded a new song produced by ZJ Chrome which is a response to Popcaan'sFry Yiy single, and had a strong warning for Popcaan. "Mek sure yuh can write some good song, and when yuh a answer, mek sure yuh answer better dan dat ... get a better writer," he said. The STAR made several attempts to get a comment from Popcaan, however, all efforts proved futile.
DeMarco is now gearing up for an upcoming tour of Europe, and his Nuh Dirt mixtape is expected to be released next week bearing singles such as 6:30, Nuh Dirt and She Nah Leave, among others.
