How would Shabba Ranks dance to “Shabba Ranks”?

ASAP Ferg and ASAP Rocky new track "Shabba Ranks"

If you don’t listen to Funkmaster Flex, reside in Harlem, or live your life as a Trap Lord, you may not have heard A$AP Ferg’s new track “Shabba Ranks” featuring A$AP Rocky. Let me give you four minutes and 40 seconds to listen to it:

Okay, you’ve heard it. But now you may be wondering, “Who the hell is Shabba Ranks?”


Yes, that’s Shabba Ranks. He may not be a lord of the jiggy, or the trap, but he’s a legend in Jamaica, the “Don Dada of Dancehall” if you will. This guy has dumb hits under his belt, and has worked with hip hop legends like Queen Latifah, Chubb Rock and KRS-One. If you’ve ever heard someone randomly yell out “Shabba” (besides A$AP Ferg) they were likely imitating Shabba’s song “Mr. Loverman.”

Mr. Ranks would probably be a cool ass dude to party with. We’d most likely head up to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Harlem, grab some drinks, then kick it with the A$AP Mob. Obviously we’d have to listen to “Shabba Ranks” to celebrate the pure awesomeness of the moment.

Shabba Ranks would probably dance to “Shabba Ranks” like this:

Shabba Ranks Mr. Loverman GIF dancing super wavy

Yeah . . . that’d be dope. As a matter of fact, I think I’m going to start a petition to get Shabba Ranks to spit a verse on the remix of “Shabba Ranks.”
