Heres a classic late 80s number, "don't sniff coke," off the Pato Banton/Ranking Roger 1988 Album, "Never Give In"

I found this 12 inch single when i was in Florida a couple years ago and i was psyched when i spotted it!

This video is from decades later, but its an interesting piece, nonetheless:


i think the song is a playful one, but it has a strong message, released during a time when the crack epidemic was pretty much raging

Heres the A side, "come again"

And just for fun, i came across this cheesy music video they did, great timepiece for the era.... a chef kitchen concept video for "bubbling hot" complete with dancing crabs


...yep, you heard me right... a dancing crab.ok....i think its a lobster, actually

I've seen Pato Banton live in Bloomington, Indiana, playing for a crowd of 12 people, and I was the only one who knew who he was.
