Jamaican superstar Popcaan has slammed Dancehall artists who promote and glorify the use of drugs in their songs and augment the theme with imagery in their music videos.

Dancehall, just like Hiphop has built strong themes around drugs and sex that have indirectly contributed to the rise in criminal activities, and this is why veterans like Popcaan don’t want the trend to continue.

“Me excited about any young artist or any new artists, you know, because me love seeing mi youth dem winning and me love seeing dem make it out of the struggle because I know what the struggles is like,” Popcaan told The Atlantic in 2018 during his promotional run for his album Forever.

He also reminded younger entertainers that “music is what put them here, you know, so always put that first.”

Popcaan also advised young artists to invest in houses and land rather than cruising in luxurious vehicles. The Unruly boss who recently acquired a mansion in Ghana where he believed his ancestors originated from also spoke about the adopted styles of taking ‘Molly’ and other pharmaceutical pills usually present in American urban songs and culture.

Molly is the powdered form of ecstasy and is considered a more potent form of the popular recreational drug usually ingested as a pill.
