This could be Shabba Ranks' year: not long after we honored the man in our Icon issue, a new clothing line has gone so far as to title itself with his surname. Ranks, based in London, will emblazon their first line of graphic tees with his visage, along with fellow dancehall kings Buju Banton and Ninjaman. The line's entire modus operandi is, in fact, idol worship—they promise vivid graphics and color combos with some of music's best known creators, putting new styles and faces in rotation every ten weeks.
