Shaggy and his team (Rayvon, Red Fox und Shaun Pizzonia) formed Ranch Entertainment in early 2011, after departing Big Yard Music Group.

"The Ranch" is Shaggy´s former private house in the surroundings of New York. In an early interview he said, it was a mistake to built a studio in the cellar of the own house- because you´re working at home then. After a short period of time, he bought a new house in Miami and from that point on he used his former private house as a studio. At the time, he lived in this house, he called it "The Ranch". Now this name is the eponym for his new label.

In addition to Shaggy, Ranch Entertainment’s world-renowned artist roster includes Rayvon and Red Fox. With fusion as their formula, they routinely collaborate with a variety of artists including Tarrus Riley, J Boog, Gyptian, Alaine, Laza Morgan and Assassin. Their impressive international collaborators include Ne-Yo, Eve, Kat DeLuna, Joe and Mario Wynans, to name a few.

You can find Ranch-merch in the online-Fanshop. Check out the catalogue here on this page!

In spring 2021, Shaggy sold the building and built 2 new studios next to his villa in Miami, which was also newly acquired at the same time. Impressions of it below.

Shaggy, working inside the Ranch

Shaggy is not only a gifted singer, but still an incredibly talented songwriter. Over the past 30 years, he has written and sung over 600 songs. So it's only natural that you sometimes would like to know how Shaggy's "workplace" looks like. And here are the insights about this:

New Ranch in Miami

Next to his villa in Miami, which he bought in spring 2021, Shaggy has also rebuilt his "Ranch" with 2 recording studios.



I´m always learning. When you stop being a student, you´ve accepted defeat.

Shaggy was working in his studio since 1995, in autumn 2015 it was time for the second makeover, the first within 15 years. Big big hits like "It wasn't me", "Angel", "Strength of a woman", das komplette #HOTSHOT Album, "What's love", "Church heathen", "Fight this feeling", "You girl", "Feel the rush", "Fly high", "Luv mi luv mi" or " I need your love" and many more were produced here. Now the pictures of the new Studio are online- enjoy your "tour" - Yours M.G.


Always searching for that Killer-beat: The Ranch-Crew.


Shaggy was not always enjoying an own recording studio. In the early years, half of his catalogue was produced in the HFC Studios in Freeport. Big massive tunes like "Mampie", "Big Up", "Oh Carolina", "Boombastic" or "That Girl" only to name a few were done there. Now, Shaggy could buy the central recording machine and displays it full of proud within the Ranch.


Riddim Compilations

In addition to the many famous albums and singles from Shaggy, his label "Ranch-Ent" released since his inception in 2010 several riddim compilations on which a different riddim is interpreted by up to 9 artists, each with different text. All riddims yet released are listed here.

Big Yard

Big Yard war Shaggy´s erstes selbst gegründetes Plattenlabel, ein Joint Venture zwischen ihm, Rayvon und seinem früheren Manager Robert Livingston. Gegründet wurde das Label 1996 und brachte viele von Shaggy´s großen Hits heraus. Auch andere bekannte Künstler wie Rik Rok, Christopher Martin, D-major, Iceman, D-Lynx oder Richi Loops standen bei dem Label unter Vertrag. Nach der Trennung von Shaggy und seinem Manager Ende 2009 stieg Shaggy aus dem Projekt aus und gründete sein neues Plattenlabel Ranch Entertainment. Viele seiner Künstlerfreunde folgten ihm.
