A$AP Ferg – “Shabba (Remix)” (Feat. Shabba Ranks, Busta Rhymes, & Migos)
This summer, A$AP Ferg scored his biggest hit yet with “Shabba,” his tense and string-screeching ode to the early-’90s Jamaican dancehall don Shabba Ranks. Shabba himself showed up on the video, and now he’s on the track’s brand-new remix, which also features a sound-effects-happy Busta Rhymes, frantically ping-ponging Atlanta rappers Migos, and a nicely unhinged new Ferg verse. As far as rap all-star remixes go, this one is a lot of fun, with canny casting and a ton of energy. Listen below.
Ferg’s ridiculously good debut album Trap Lord is out now on RCA, and the “Shabba” remix is up on iTunes now.
