Rapper Drake & Popcaan

Dancehall star Popcaan completed a big summer by making huge strides in Canada, including linking up with Canadian rapper and international star Drake.

While the world was enraptured with the Summer Olympics in London, the deejay, whose real name is Andrae Sutherland, was busy in Canada with two shows over the Caribbana Weekend. The artiste wowed audiences while performing at Coconuts and the Sound Academy in Toronto.

It was a long performance-filled Summer for the deejay that included a two-week European tour, several Caribbean shows including Martinique, Guadeloupe, Trinidad and electrifying performances at Reggae Sumfest and Dream Weekend, just to name a few.

The deejay said, "It's been a crazy summer but mi give thanks, especially to all di fans that show up and pack di shows. Di fans dem mad, dem fry. Canada always shows me nuff love; respect to the Canadians fans straight."

While in Canada Popcaan met with hip hop artist Drake, whose team had reached out to him in the months leading up to his performance at Caribana. Drake sent an invitation to Popcaan's team to attend the rapper's third annual OVO Fest. OVO Fest is Drake's yearly concert hosted in his home town Toronto and this year featured the likes of Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Snoop Dog, 2Chainz, The Weeknd and Meek Millz.

The rapper has been an admirer of Popcaan as seen on occasions when he has taken to social media networking site Twitter, to tweet the deejay's song lyrics and slangs. Popcaan said, "I met Drake backstage at OVO Fest, then linked again at the after party on Sunday, (August 5th). After that di vibes did mad so we went to two private parties on Monday, following di show".



The two also discussed working together soon. "Meeting Drake was good; he's cool and wants to come to Jamaica again. Him rate my 'Yiy Change' mixtape. His whole crew knows the mixtape well. He likes my music and knows all di slangs," Popcaan added.

Currently back in Jamaica, Popcaan will be returning to Canada for the Montreal International Reggae Festival on Saturday as well as other shows in Hamilton, Winnipeg, Ottawa and London - to name a few. After Canada the deejay has appearances in the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.

While busy on the road, the artiste never neglects the studio. He recently released Bay Badness for TJ Records, A Mi Baby Dat for UIM Records and coming soon Me Caan Believe for YVP Productions and a track on ZJ Liquid's 'Pre-Release' rhythm.

On September 1, Popcaan will host a 'Back to School' treat in the 3West community of Portmore, St Catherine. The treat will include school item giveaways, fun rides and games for children and entertainment by popular artistes.

According to Popcaan, "this is my small way of giving back to my community, to help the parents with some of the expenses by giving school bags and books and also to give the children some fun before the serious school work starts."
