Popcaan didn’t feel Kanye West’s Yeezy kicks when shopping for sneakers in the UK
Popcaan remains loyal to Drake and not even to Kanye West’s famous Yeezy kicks that he won’t support.
With his many hit songs and charismatic personality, Popcaan is known to be brutally honest about his feelings. Dancehall Deejay had a great time in London, giving fans a little more information on their taste in sneakers.
Popcaan visited UK luxury sneaker retailer Kick Game and was featured on the store’s YouTube page, capturing his private purchases without filtering out likes and dislikes of the ‘Level Up’ deejay.
The YouTube page usually features other celebrities giving details of their preferences when providing sneaker reviews. Popcaan was reportedly exclusively invited, and while there were no fans in attendance (possibly due to the Covid-19 pandemic), Popcaan definitely upped the mood of staff members with his jokes and antics.
Of course, the deejay, who was accompanied by his older brother, didn’t hesitate to say what his preferences are and what he really doesn’t like.
The âFirm and Strongâ deejay praised England-based Jamaican footballer Raheem Sterling’s Clarks collection and demanded the brand.
âShow the mi di Raheem Sterling shoes. Get mi di Raheem Sterling shoes in place. Bring them in here. It is my brother ! he apologized.
However, Kanye West’s Yeezy hasn’t had such positive feedback. The Unruly Boss has made no secret of his contempt for the brand.
“What is a Yeezy’s brother?” Mi nuh know bout dat! Mi nuh knows dem deh shoes. Dem shoes look like alien shoes. I don’t feel these brothers, âhe said.
However, the DJ praised a pair of slides as something he could wear but down to the river, and pointed out that he didn’t like the name too much.
âI don’t slide, fam. Mi love go river and dem ting deh mi can use dem yahâ¦ choose one a dem yah as a river shows. We can easily use some Yeezys, but we don’t deal with the glide, âhe explained.
He settled for a pair of Travis Scott X Air Force One Low Cactus Jack sneakers, Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Shadow 2.0, Union LA X Air Jordan 4 Retros in Guava Ice, among other cool sneakers.
Popcaan also insisted on buying clothes for his “family” at home, and he went to get a pair of shoes for Jorja Smith, a British singer with whom he had collaborated on the track “Come Over”.
The 33-year-old also honored Buju Banton by selecting a t-shirt featuring the face of DJ “Untold Stories” and declaring him a “legend”.
âBuju means music, it is a symbol of Jamaican industry. He is a family brother, âhe said.
Popcaan also selected a tracksuit and a TrapStar jacket from the NOCTA Apparel collection by Drake and Nike.
At the end of the shopping spree, Popcaan paid an invoice of Â£ 9,154.85.
