“Kissin’ Pink” announced A$AP Ferg as one of 2011’s most compelling weird voices in rap, and his “Shabba” remix is a rogue’s gallery of ear-tweaking flows. The titular dancehall killer, Shabba Ranks himself, pokes out of retirement to give his not-unexpected verse with his still iconic patois baritone. Then it’s Migos, pogoing gleefully over absurd this-and-thats with a high fructose charge. Busta Rhymes shows his grey as he tries to keep up the kids underneath his Formula 1 gravel. And that beat is still a killer.
