It’s big business when these two team up! The “Unruly Boss” Popcaan and UK Rapper Giggs got the clips loaded and masks on in their new track, “Time’s Tickin’“. Over a banging Production, the Artists go into “Killy Killy” mode and show listeners they’re not playing when the war is on! For those who aren’t familiar with Giggs, he has been on the UK Rap and Grime scene for a few years delivering slick rhymes over dope Production. More people got wind of him thanks to his appearance on Rapper Drake’s “More Life” project. With his recently released “Wamp 2 Dem” Mixtape, he wants new listeners to know he’s here to stay, and will be a problem to those who step in his way. Wicked! Shout out to Popcaan as he has once again secured an International collaboration! Have a listen to the song below!
Many of you may not be readily familiar with UK House Singer Kyla, but you do know some of her music. Her more recognized single is the 2008 hit, “Do You Mind (Crazy Cousinz)” which was sampled for Rapper Drake’s hit “One Dance“. Now back on the scene with new music, she’s putting in work! Drawing for some Island vibes, she called up the “Unruly Boss” Popcaan for “You Ain’t Mine“. Produced by Production duo Ill Blu, they provide a beat that will get you rocking as Kyla confronts Poppy about sharing him with another woman. This is not their first collaboration together as they appeared on the Naughty Boy track, “Should’ve Been Me” last year. Popcaan has been busy on the International scene thanks to his collaborations with Artists like Gorillaz (Saturn Barz), and Ivy Layne (One You Love), let’s see what’s next for him for the rest of the year. Check out the track below.
