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, in a recent interview 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.
In response to Kingston City, 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. Furthermore, the singjay pointed out that Popcaan doesn't have a hit song quite like Love My Life, which copped Demarco well over 25 million views on YouTube.
"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.
Meanwhile, Demarco will be releasing a counteraction to Popcaan's Fry Yiy single, produced by ZJ Chrome, warning the self-professed 'Gaza Prefect' that he needs a better writer and must reply with a better counteraction.
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.
