Popcaan Gives Inspirational Speech To Children In Juvenile Detention Center [WATCH VIDEO]

Despite a hectic schedule and being one of the most sort-after acts in the space, Dancehall star Popcaan recently took time out from his busy schedule to mentor a number of youngsters at one of the island's juvenile detention center.

During his speech the Unruly boss spoke about his own perils as a young man growing up in Jamaica and the adversities face on his journey to stardom. He also used the opportunity to encourage the kids to stay focus and put the Almight first in all things.

After singing a few lines from the very popular 'Unruly Prayer' Popcaan said, 

"Oonu love God__ put up oonu hand__ oonu pray__ look I don't leave my bible", while reaching for his a concise version of the holy book in the back pocket of his pants  

He continued, "because anything Popcaan a do we put God first, we put the Almighty above everything.. above the fame and stardom... I am always giving thanks whether it's a good or bad day"

In closing the deejay implored the youngsters to make their family proud before reciting his popular slangs #kickout #farout.

Meanwhile,  the single 'Good Times' recorded by himself and controversial American rapper Young Thug, was recently added to UK's MTV playlist.

The song, which was produced by UK-based producer Jamie XX, currently has more than three million views on Jamie XX's YouTube page and has received positive reviews.

The video features cameos from both Popcaan and Young Thug, however they share no scenes together. Popcaan who has been without a US visa for quite sometime, is unable to maximise his potential overseas despite being noted as Jamaica's next recording artiste with the potential to cross over into the foreign market.

Good Times' addition to MTV's playlist, means the single will be exposed to a wider audience since the channel is aired in over 10 million homes in the UK and Ireland.

The song is yet to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. However the esteemed chart recently described the song as one of the best records released in 2015.
