Shabba Ranks Fans Goes HAM On Harry Styles & GQ For This

Shabba Ranks loyal fans on social media blew their fuse this week when GQ Magazine credited pop star Harry Styles for a particular jewelry trend.

GQ sent out a tweet over the weekend that reads, “Thanks to Harry Styles, wearing multiple rings is now a thing.” Shabba Ranks fans were amused by the statement and immediately went in on the fashion mag. “Shabba done invented that trend from back in the 1990s, just how old are these people who are running GQ,” one fan said.

Several other fans of the dancehall legend chimed in calling out GQ for cultural appropriation. “He’s a true icon,” another fan wrote on tweeted while tagging GQ. “There are quite a few cultural developments that can be linked to Shabba. Even baggy jeans and now even that is back in style.”

ASAP Ferg even released a song in 2013 called “Shabba” where he credited the dancehall icon for the way he dresses and wears jewelry. “Eight gold rings like I’m Sha-Shabba Ranks / Four gold chains like I’m Sha-Shabba Ranks / One gold tooth like I’m Sha-Shabba Ranks,” ASAP Ferg raps. If you’re a hardcore dancehall fan and has been following the genre from at least the 1990s then you would agree with the assessment of most of Shabba Ranks fans on this issue. He was influential with a lot of the current trends like wearing multiple chains, baggy cloth, and even some hairstyles.

“Shabba was a trendsetter and these news cats in the business are just copycats, lets give the man the respect he deserves,” another dancehall fan wrote.

Kicked it one time, with your girlfriend
And she fucked me for a purse
I could hit that thing forever, when I’m on the perc

[Verse 1: NAV & Lil Uzi Vert]

Now my young boys do the dirt (brown boy)
Fully automatic, pull up hit you with a burst
Put you on a shirt, you a lil’ boy, you a smurf
She used to put me down, and now she lifting up her skirt
Pull up and I swerve, leave her feelings hurt
She fucked me for a purse, she fucked me for a XO shirt
I see you wearing Off-White, but you know, I bought it first
I seen you post a picture, and I had to change my shirt
I can’t punch him in his face, he gonna sue me now
Took your bitch to Nobu, fuck me for some sushi now
I hit it once, and now I can’t stand her now
They pay me fifty thousand, just to stand around

[Chorus: Lil Uzi Vert]

Diamonds different colors, so my neck look like Starburst
Kicked it one time, with your girlfriend
And she fucked me for a purse
I could hit that thing forever, when I’m on the perc

[Verse 2: Lil Uzi Vert]
Heard you got that AP swerve, that was my watch first
Heard you got that Lambo’, skrt, that was my drive first
Chopper beat that bitch to spurs, clip hang to the curb
That girl know, I put in work, like I’m A$AP Ferg
Your girlfriend say, I’m handsome
Fuck any girl, so random
Rock any clothes, I’m random

Don’t give me the top then cancel
My momma said these niggas can’t stand you
And I’m laughing right to the bank
All my chains on like I’m Shabba Ranks

[Chorus: Lil Uzi Vert]

And people putting bruises on my beautiful black skin
So I teach ’em a lesson through a Hip-Hop session
Let ’em know that Imma keep on steppin’

And if you knew me, your thoughts wouldn’t budge me
Knowledge in the music is way to get through
