Popcaan first started Unruly Fest in 2018 and has since hosted successful events featuring international artists like Drake and Tory Lanez.

He also announced the release of the deluxe version of his album "Great Is He," which features eight new tracks, including "Celebrate" featuring Black Sherif, "Bend It Over," "Millionz," "With You," "No Expectations," "Barbie Dolly," "Greatness," and "Light One."
The album's release comes just in time for Popcaan's Great Is He tour, scheduled to take place in Europe this summer. The tour kicks off on May 12 in Tilburg, Netherlands.
Popcaan's music continues to resonate with fans worldwide, with the artist gaining recognition for his unique sound that blends traditional Jamaican reggae and dancehall with contemporary beats. His contributions to music have earned him a place as one of Jamaica's most promising talents, with many predicting even greater things for the artist in the future.
As the world continues to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic, events like Unruly Fest provide much-needed entertainment for people while supporting local economies. Popcaan's efforts to promote St. Thomas and his community through music are commendable, and his success serves as an inspiration to other artists looking to give back to their communities through their art.
