Shabba Ranks (born Rexton Rawlston Fernando Gordon, 17 January 1966) is a Jamaican dancehall musician. He was one of the
most popular dancehall artists of the 1990's, and was also one of the first Jamaican deejays to gain worldwide acceptance and
recognition for his 'slack' lyrical expressions and content, when "ridin' di riddim". His gravel toned, rough-sounding voice made
him instantly recognized worldwide.
