A$AP Ferg Enlists Shabba Ranks, Busta Rhymes and Migos for ‘Shabba’ Remix
A$AP Ferg’s dancehall-meets-trap music banger ‘Shabba’ became a head-nodding street anthem over the summer. Now the Harlem rhymer brings the remix for the infectious track featuring the dancehall legend himself, Shabba Ranks. Plus, rappers Busta Rhymes and Migos join in to make the cipher complete.
Shabba Ranks kicks it off with a rousing introduction in his Jamaican patois.
“Say my name a likkle louder / Holla out mi name mek I rip up the crowd, yah / Say it 3 times if me you proud of / SHABBA! SHABBA! SHABBA!” he raps.
Then Fergenstein steps in to remind everyone who is the “Rookie of the Year” and does his best Kanye West impression.
“Two bad bitches in my vehicle / Yellow hood rats like Pikachu / Hit it from the back got me screaming like / Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah! — like Yeezus do / Bringing rappers from the dead like Jesus do / Can’t call them Bone Thugs cause they eating dude,” he spits.
Migos follows through busting their rapid-fire rhymes and weird sound effects. Their verses consist of gun talk, flossing and cashing out on jewelry.
Finally, Bussa-Buss closes the song out with his lyrical hubris we come to expect from the veteran rhyme-slinger.
“So much jewelry, n—- looking priceless out here / A lot of rappin’ n—-s looking lifeless out here / Kill ’em ’til they say a n—- triflin’ out here / And you can let ’em talk, you know who the nicest out here,” he raps.
