Welcome to LargeUp’s street style series, Pop Style. Every other Friday, we’ll be talking sartorial shop with the most impeccably dressed men and women of the Caribbean and the diaspora, from familiar faces to everyday people pon di corner.

A few weeks back, we brought you inside the world of Bajan soca stars Leadpipe and Saddis, and their comedic alter egos, Porgie & Murda. In that story, we also told you about the feature-length movie, Unusual Suspects, they’ve developed as Porgie and Murda. Now, we’ve got an exclusive preview of that movie, which is set to hit theaters in Barbados this month. You can look out for it in the US too, around Barbados Independence Day.

Barbados’ Leadpipe and Saddis took over Crop Over this year with their “Tune of De Crop”winning “Ah Feeling.” If the voices sounded familiar but the names don’t that’s because you may know them as Porgie & Murda, stars of the popular Bajan comedy series by that name and the artists behind last year’s “Condense.”

Words by LargeUp Crew

Soca music tends to fan out into the world through two different waves over the course of the year. First, around the start of the year (and increasingly during the holiday season the year before), you have the tunes for Trinidad Carnival. And then, as spring turns into summer, things start getting hot again as the carnival calendar moves through the Eastern Caribbean from St. Vincent to Grenada.
