Happy Birthday Shabba Ranks (January 17th)!

Shabba Ranks is undeniably one of the most popular figures in Dancehall.  His celebrated rise to fame and still reigning tenure as one of the most sought-after artists makes him one of the most respected legends of the genre.

Over the years, Shabba has earned crossover successes with R&B and Hip-Hop collaborations with Johnny Gill and KRS One as well as Reggae hits with Maxi Priest, JC Lodge and Cocoa T.  He won a GRAMMY in 1992 and 1993 for his albums ‘Raw As Ever’ and ‘X-tra Naked’ respectively.

Shabba was awarded the Order of Distinction, Jamaica’s highest honor in October, 2016.
