Shabba Ranks adds verse to A$AP Ferg's 'Shabba' Remix Image

by Biko Kennedy

A$AP Ferg's "Shabba" single spun as one of 2013 biggest bangers with the official video sporting a very rare cameo from The Dancehall Emperor himself. Now near 5 months after the single's release Shabba jumps onto the official remix.

Featuring a new verse from the Trap Lord A$AP Ferg, Versace trio Migos and Busta Rhymes, Shabba Ranks opens the track only he could. 

"The younger youths did a song about Shabba Ranks in America which shows you the influence that I have over the world with [music]…when the people in Jamaica or the younger youths in Jamaica don't choose to do it. And I know that I inspire and motivate them likewise. But [A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky] pick up that inspiration and show it to the world that they love and respect how mi carry mi self…how mi kick out mi foot and how mi nice up mi self," expressed the Dancehall Emperor in a September interview with Winford Williams' OnStage.

Check out the track and Shabba's lyrics below:
