OLDIES SUNDAY: Home T, Cocoa Tea, Shabba Ranks – Pirates’ Anthem (1988)


This one is dedicated to those who strive to get the music out there by any means, legally or illegally. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Home T, Cocoa Tea, and Shabba Ranks titled, “Pirates’ Anthem“.

Produced by Augustus “Gussie” Clarke, “Pirates’ Anthem” was released through Music Works Records and Anchor Records in 1988. On the track, Home T, Cocoa Tea, and Shabba Ranks team up for a dedication to all those who build pirated Radio Stations to play the songs that need to be played. While Radio Stations around the world have a set list of songs for airplay, Pirated stations bypass that by having the freedom to play any song in all its glory without worry about editing, and certain regulations. The only problems Pirate Radio may face are getting shut down, and possible incrimination. Regardless, they all return to play what the people want to hear. Pirate Radio has gained massive popularity through the decades, and new ones are being made often. Home T, Cocoa Tea, and Shabba Ranks display great chemistry on the track, and “Pirates’ Anthem” became a hit for them. The single was featured on the 1989 album, “Holding On“, which was released through Greensleeves Records. “Pirates’ Anthem” was given the sample treatment a few times, and some include Hannibal Lecter’sJust Because We Play“, 2Pac’sViolent“, and Shenseea’sRun Run” which was produced by Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor.

When Jamaica’s involved in something, it’s gonna be great. Tonight, BET kicked off their annual Hip Hop Awards. While they’ve featured some of the best in music, many were waiting for the much anticipated “Reggae Cypher“!

Featuring Shenseea, Bounty Killa, Beenie Man, Skip Marley, Koffee, with ZJ Liquid handling the DJ role, the artists did what they had to do over Damian “Junior Gong” Marley’s classic “Welcome To JamRock“, and represented Jamaica and Dancehall. Given that Covid 19 is still around, the Cypher had to be pre-recorded for broadcast. Can you imagine if all artists were performing live? Lots of high energy would be given. Big up the artists, another one for Jamaica!
