Dre Skull and Popcaan Collaborate On New Mixpak Single
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Shame on us for letting this one slip through the cracks for a few weeks, but earlier this month, burgeoning dancehall MC Popcaan and Dre Skull dropped the first in a planned series of releases, a new single called "Get Gyal Easy" (artwork above). After paying his dues as a Vybz Kartel protege, Popcaan broke out on his own in 2011 and appears set to continue building his reputation as a man who knows his way around funky riddims and steamy bashment tunes alike, and it's hard to think of a better producer for him to link up with than Mixpak boss Dre Skull, who was behind the boards on last year's Vybz Kartel album, Kingston Story. You can listen to a stream of "Get Gyal Easy"—a tune for which Mixpak has even gone so far as to make t-shirts for—below.
