Shabba Ranks (born Rexton Rawlston Fernando Gordon, 17 January 1966, Sturgetown, St. Ann, Jamaica) is a Jamaican dancehall recording artist.

He stands among the most popular Jamaican dancehall artists of his generation. He was also one of the first Jamaican deejays to gain worldwide acceptance, and recognition for his 'slack' lyrical expressions and content, when "ridin' de riddim". His gravel toned, rough-sounding voice made him instantly recognized worldwide.
