Alkaline and Popcaan ‘trade diss tracks’ to start new year
Just over a week into the new year, the deejays have recorded songs apparently directed at each other, with Popcaan’s Stray Dog and Alkaline’s Microwave.
In Stray Dog, Popcaan takes shot at a ‘bwoy’ who he says knows “nothing 'bout badness”. The ‘bwoy’ in Stray Dog has been widely interpreted to be Alkaline, who released Badness it Name in December.
“…you no bad like Rihanna… Shot we play inna your head like piano… Me and your badness could a never similar,” Popcaan deejays in Stray Dog.
However, Alkaline took the ‘beef’ to another level with the arguably more direct ‘diss’ track, Microwave.
Alkaline deejays: “Streets dun know man legit inna war… Dem a boots up a likkle midget inna war… Flopcaan, worl know seh yuh nuh badman… Yuh get 30 million dolla wut a ride and a range as a prize.”
Links to the songs on social media have generated thousands of comments with fans of both artistes trading barbs. See some of the comments below:
