Shabba Deux: Guess Who Turns Up In A$AP Ferg’s “Shabba” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

After watching two thirds of the video for A$AP Ferg’s “Shabba”, we were starting to think we’d been duped. We’d heard about Shabba making a rare appearance in the clip for the single he’d inspired, but could the sources we’d heard from have possibly mistaken the 20-something impersonator who turns up periodically in the same video for the real Emperor of Dancehall? Then…boom…at 4:25, there he is—a surprise guest at a party, interrupting a convo between A$AP Rocky (who also features on the song) and Felecia “Snoop” Pearson from The Wire—who, naturally, shout “Shabba!” in unison, then run.

AUDIO: A$AP Ferg’s “Shabba” Continues Hip-Hop’s ’90s Dancehall Obsession

Words by Richard “Treats” Dryden—

ASAP-Ferg-Shabba-

We were up real late last night when A$AP Ferg’s “Shabba” caught our ear (via NahRight), minutes after seeing the video for his “Work” remix on MTVJams. The Harlem native is emerging from A$AP Rocky’s shadow and killing it right now, and it didn’t take him long, either. He’s officially hit a stride between “Work,” stealing the show on A$AP MOB’s Lord$ Never Worry, and now “Shabba”. The latest in the wave of new hip-hop tracks referencing classic, ’90s-era dancehall, (see also Kanye’s recent Shabba shout-out), the A$AP Rocky-guested track sees Ferg likening his accessories game to the iconic dancehall star whose style is synonymous with swagger.
