Shabba Ranks’ “Ting-A-Ling” Sampled On @Wale’s “Folarin II” Album!


Recently, US Rapper Wale released his much anticipated album, “Folarin II“. The album is the sequel to his 2012 “Folarin” Mixtape, and finds him showing growth in his over 15 year career. The album features collaborations with J. Cole, Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Jamie Foxx, and many others. While he is known for clever wordplay and songs for the ladies, a familiar sound popped up on this album. Knowing how Jamaicans can pop up in anything, Dancehall legend Shabba Ranks makes an appearance on “Folarin II”!

On track 2 titled “Name Ring Bell“, Shabba Ranks’ classic single, “Ting-A-Ling” was sampled. Produced by Tr!zzy Track, “Name Ring Bell” features the signature “Ting a ling a ling” throughout the track while Wale raps about why his name rings bells. “Ting-A-Ling” was produced by Steely & Clevie on the “Gigi Riddim” and released in 1992 through the Shang label, and it finds Shabba Ranks belting out clever Dancehall lyrics. The song became one of Shabba’s biggest hits, and has been sampled by Vybz Kartel, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg, and Drake.
