Cocoa Tea Biological Warfare
- Words: James Mayo
- Label: Minor7Flat5
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
These are some serious times and this reggae vet has plenty to say. Arguably, his most political record since his “Blood for Oil” and “Oil ‘Ting” singles were banned from Jamaica and the U.K. during the first Gulf War, Biological Warfare attacks with a vengeance on “New World Order.” Whether speaking out on World Bank policies on the record’s best track, “Blood and Fyah,” or environmental genocide on “Stop Tell Lie,” Cocoa Tea’s melodic vocals–produced by Brotherman and backed by musicians from the stellar Firehouse Crew–illustrate his bitter disdain for world leaders. For three decades, Tea’s brew of conscious roots and culture music has entertained audiences, and with Biological Warfare, he shows no signs of complacency.
