How well do you know one of the Caribbean's most popular genres?

Youtube.com / Via youtu.be

Dancehall music is a staple of Caribbean culture, originating in Jamaica and enjoyed throughout the region. With this new generation of hip-hop stars like Drake turning to islands for inspiration, many younger music fans seem to be under the impression that their borrowed (read, Columbused) sounds truly represent dancehall music. In fact, many islanders refuse to acknowledge any version of Controlla where Popcaan is not present. Therefore, to weed out the true fans from the bandwagonists, we've come up with the ultimate dancehall quiz. How well do you know your dancehall?
