  1. Presenting, the "incomparable" Jamaican dancehall artiste who will be performimg at SLU Jazz 2K14....drum roll please...Popcaan. Really? Jamaican dancehall artistes like Popcaan are a dime a dozen suh me nuh know bout incomparable. The guy barely has 5 hit songs in his repertoire or does he have sufficient tracks to even have a repertoire?I was thoroughly enjoying the article until I read that exaggerated description of this dancehall light weight. Digicel you guys don't need to embellish the acts in the opening line-up to entice patrons; we're not coming out to see Popcaan so gweh!
