First off, Dancehall artiste Popcaan is not a Canadian rapper, despite what you may have heard on seedy podcasts.
Jamaican Twitter users have been dragging the hosts, and guest of an episode of a YouTube podcast dubbed Thots Next Door on the No Jumper channel after they mischaracterized Jamaican superstar and OVO signee Popcaan as a Canadian rapper and called him out for refusing an advance.
It was during a podcast uploaded on Tuesday where host Aliza made the controversial remark drawing the ire of a number of Jamaicans and others.
The comment was made after guest and adult actress, Slim Danger, indicated that she tried to get with the Unruly Boss after going down a list of American rappers she’s been with, which include but are not limited to YoungBoy Never Broke Again, 6ix9nine, and Chief Keef (with whom she shares a child).
The brief discussion on Popcaan started after Aliza asked her to tell her more about her “habits,” to which she asked if they “wanted to talk about Popcaan.”
Co-host Celina asked “Who the f—k is Popcaan” and that’s when fellow host Aliza declared that, “He’s a Canadian rapper”.
Celina then replied, “so he’s like Drake, isn’t he signed to OVO”.
Slim Danger then chimed in to call out Popcaan at his apparent lack of interest in her request.
“You played trying like you was going with the other bitch, and you know want this core p___y” she ranted in what seems to be directed at the FIXTAPE hitmaker. They then went onto discuss whether Popcaan had a girlfriend or not but agreed it would not have made a difference.
Popcaan was rumored to have split with his long time Trinidadian girlfriend Kavell Keir after they unfollowed each other on Instagram in January, but Keir publicly reached out to Popcaan on his birthday in July.
The entire segment has not gone down well with the Jamaican collective on Twitter.

Team Upsetta was similarly critical writing “What’s worse? Calling Popcaan a Canadian rapper? Not knowing who Popcaan is at all? Looking like these 3 chicks and still having the nerve to talk badly about others?”

A1 Breat Control found some comedy in its by insinuating, “Since Popcaan is a Canadian rapper, I guess Kartel is a European R&B singer”.

The women also used the podcast to discuss a variety of raunchy topics to include some controversial stuff about NFL player Odell Beckman Junior.
