Out of Many, One Music has received a Grammy nod for Reggae Album of the year.
"Out of Many, One Music is a classic album which people will listen to 10 years from now" says Hot97 Disc Joc Bobby Konders.
The Sony/Brooklyn Knights/Ranch Entertainment deal, is one which still allows Shaggy to have creative say in the production of his music, yet have a powerhouse supporting his music and brand. This is a major accomplishment for Shaggy, who was last signed to a major in 2006 and despite the naysayers has stayed focused, relevant and persevered through it all.
"I've said it before, signing to a major is great, but you must establish yourself first as an artist and grow on your own. After you've created a buzz in the streets they (record companies) will come looking. And that's what happened" says Shaggy.
