Dutty Cup crew, which includes Sean Paul and his friends Looga Man, Kurup, Chicken, and Mossy Kid, are labelled "uptown " deejays, considered to have more privileged upbringings than other dancehall artists who predominantly hail from ghetto areas. However, if you go to Kingston today compared to 10 years ago, radio play of dancehall music has increased tenfold reaching all classes. All-inclusive "Uptown" sessions these days are ram packed, often holding 1000 people and upwards, proving that dancehall is not just a ghetto thing anymore. In music, it’s not Sean’s class which speaks for him, it’s his records.
