    Popcaan drop a conscious new single titled “Family,” produced by Delly Ranx & PMGJA.

    The track is featured on the new Cotton Swab Riddim and features Popcaan calling out some fake people around him. “Mi nuh know if heaven is real / But mi know fi a fact a no every man real / Some boi heart dutty not clean / Dem nuh want see a next yout livin’ in the hills / To every evil demon / Dem can’t stop mi nor Dre Island,” Popcaan deejay over the Cotton Swab dancehall beat.

    Popcaan has a chance to create history this month by winning a third straight MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act in the UK. The Unruly Boss deejay won the award for the past two years, but this year he has stiff competition from the likes of Alkaline, Aidonia, Damian Marley, and Chronixx.


  • Popcaan – Family Lyrics


    (Intro)
    Yo Shaqqie, yo Cuzz
    Family, a mi seh family (tr8)

    (Verse 1)
    If a one thing mi hate a fren killa
    Mi no believe inna fren killa
    Family, a mi seh family
    Mi love mi fam a dem through mi heart
    Don’t you dare hurt one of them
    Real killy dead it
    To di end and from di start
    We real, real bredda dem
    Cah dem nuh know when we a buy 3 sardine
    And the 1 pound a rice from di shop
    And dem nuh know when we a get chased by cops
    And the Mac and the handgun drop
    And although man make it now
    Mi know how struggle feel
    And mi know all a di pu**y dem
    And mi know who f***ing real

    (Chorus)
    Nah make dem trick mi and kill mi, no way
    Yuh mussi bloodclaat mad
    Life a di greatest ting, dawg
    Mi nuh leff gun, nah, mi nuh leff my god
    Can’t trick mi and kill mi, no way
    Yuh mussi bloodclaat mad
    Life a di greatest ting, dawg

    (Verse 2)
    A mi energy dem waan teif when
    Mi see it clear, seh dem a mongoose
    Dem kno seh tha youth a nuh friendly

    Man loyal to who loyal
    Some boi will fi sink off like Port Royal
    Informer wah judge, have mi pon trial
    Dem days mi don’t trust nuh boy nor gyal (Hmm)
    Mi nuh know if heaven is real
    But mi know fi a fact, I know every man real
    Some boi heart dutty not clean
    Dem nuh want see a next yout livin’ in the hills
    To every evil demon
    Dem can’t stop mi nor Dre Island
    Everytime mi a drive inna my van
    Big fat matic inna mi right hand

    (Chorus)
    Nah make dem trick mi and kill mi, no way
    Yuh mussi bloodclaat mad
    Life a di greatest ting, dawg
    Mi nuh leff gun, nah, mi nuh leff my god
    Can’t trick mi and kill mi, no way
    Yuh mussi bloodclaat mad
    Life a di greatest ting, dawg
    Mi nuh leff gun, nah, mi nuh leff my god

    (Bridge)
