Soul Kid Klik "Mortal Combat" (12", 1997)

Back with some more heat from the underground in 1996; Soul Kid Klik’s “Mortal Combat” 12” on Roach Music. Soul Kid Klik were a New York-based crew that was formed by producer/MC G-Clef da Mad Komposa in the mid-90s and were at one-time affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan. Reppin’ different boroughs of New York City, the Soul Kid Klik consisted of G-Clef, Blakspik, Goodfella Mike G, Storm Da Ghetto Mutant, DJ Spinbad and Infamous Mr. Savage. While “Mortal Combat” was the first single, it was followed by a couple more 12” releases and finally a debut album in 2001, “Invisible Army” on Hip-Hop Enterprise. In addition, there were several solo releases during the same timespan, however I haven’t heard the bulk of them to suggest what to check out. Update: If you’re curious to hear “Invisible Army,” you can check it out HERE as it’s recently been uploaded to Bandcamp. Vinyl is now available too. Peep "Mortal Combat" & Da Mad Scientist remix below.
