Internationally acclaimed Dancehall/Reggae artiste, Demarco has taken aim at one of Jamaican music’s breakthrough superstars in the wake of recent speculation over his latest single, Kingston City.
In Kingston City, Demarco allegedly fires lyrical shots in the direction of Portmore Empire deejay, Popcaan. Demarco deejays,“Nuh mek mi mek forensic white chalk the street, yaaooow! Dem thief 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.”
Since the video for Kingston City was released late last month, fans have wondered if the single was a diss track aimed at Popcaan. In response to the speculation, Demarco insists that the song was done as a freestyle to feature on his upcoming mixtape, Nuh Dirt. However, the Starkutt Records singjay didn’t deny that some of the lyrics in Kingston City were aimed at Popcaan and even accused the Only Man She Want deejay of stealing his style.
“People a sey a Popcaan mi a dis, well a Popcaan mi dis, whol’ heap a dem tief mi style including him,” he told the Jamaica STAR.
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.”
Popcaan has since released an alleged counteraction to Demarco’s single entitled, Fry Yiy in which he deejays, “The whole place a sey Fry Yiy, some bwoy fi write some hit song and stop cry.”
Upon hearing the song, a less that impressed Demarco launched a scathing attack on Popcaan, implying that the Ravin’ deejay is overrated and warned him to choose his words 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 ,” he said.
Demarco also mocked Popcaan’s Fry Yiy persona, intimating that, “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.”
Meanwhile, Demarco will be releasing a counteraction to Popcaan’s Fry Yiy single, produced by ZJ Chrome.
“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.
Demarco will soon be touring Europe and will officially release the Nuh Dirt mixtape next week, featuring hits such as She Nah Leave and 6:30.
