The US dollar equivalent is around $230,000 considering that one of these SUVs MSRP in the United States is around US$50,000. But Popcaan would have to pay import duties are all kinds of other taxes to get it in the island.
Popcaan is also noting that he is the first to own a convertible Range Rover in Jamaica. The Hotskull deejay recently returned to Jamaica following a performance in Martinique over the weekend.
