blogs or social networks, like it happened already for artists once considered niche like Popcaan and Tommy Lee Sparta before him, from unknown to
quickly young dancehall stars.
In the last year Coppa worked even harder proving he is more than just a promise. He released his mixtape Coppa Mi Name that includes several different styles and the amazing Maximum Lyrics where he rhymes on a famous hip hop beat from last summer, killing it with no effort.
While in the past he was still defying his style and he deejayed on a lot of “gangster
tunes” gaining a reputation for defending himself in various clash where other artists where calling his name, in the current time his style and his musical elevation is being expanding and now he is building solid on different type of vibes :he can sing, deejay and he while he still has his shotta songs he also has tunes for the ladies, tunes for the airwave and tunes for the dance floor.
