Best Reggae Album – As Raw as Ever – Shabba Ranks (1991-34th Grammy Awards)
The year was 1991 and from my recollection, Shabba was the main guy to really set it off on the “dancehall tip.” This video takes me back to when we used to go to house parties and “GET DOWN” on the reggae dance moves with the ladies. WOW! If only our parents knew how we were dancing with each other. But I’m sure that they way the kids dance today would make our dancing look like the “Waltz.” Big up to Shabba Ranks!
Lastly, it’s funny what stardom can do for a brother. I remember when girls went from saying, “Dang, ewwww…Shabba? Unh Unh!”….to saying…”Ooooooo Shabba, he can get it!”
