The Dancehall deejay recently got back his US visa and work permit and will be making his first appearance on US soil on August 25 in Atlanta for the 2017 Red Bull Culture Clash. Dancehall industry players have been voicing their support for Popcaan, who has been one of the hottest artists in the genre without a visa. Sources inside the Unruly camp told Dancehall HipHop that the deejay is ready to bring home the title.
“Unruly is ready to bring home the Red Bull Culture Clash trophy, its going back to yard,” sources told DHH. “We have a big show and a lot of surprises for this event. Clash is our thing, we invented that so we won’t disappoint dancehall.” Popcaan and his Unruly gang will be going up against other acts like Mike WiLL Made-It, Tinie Tempah, and WondaGurl. The event will be at 787 Windsor in ATL and will broadcast live on Red Bull Radio starting 7 p.m.
Last year, Popcaan appeared at the Red Bull Culture Clash event in London as a part of Mixpak team which won the competition. The “Unruly Boss” deejay famously played a Drake “One Dance” dubplate on the show in a clash with Wiz Khalifa. You can get a piece of the action in the video below.
