Shabba Ranks converged on Jamaica last month to record his first single in Jamaica in over a decade.
The dancehall legend drew a large crowd of spectators everywhere on the island that he popped up.
Winford Williams of OnStage caught up with the Ranks at the old skate land in Kingston. In the interview Shabba opened up about his thoughts on Vybz Kartel conviction and the current state of dancehall music.
“It’s not goo but the justice system has to do what the justice system has to do… But where a ghetto youth who is talented and him might seeing some progress it don’t look good,” Shabba Ranks said.
“I man never expect them type of things from a rude boy, but the system has to do what the system has to do, we in the street we just have to pray for him because it’s not everyone can go to prison because if everyone go to prison then no one will be here free… It’s not for for the music,” Shabba Ranks added.
