Soul Kid Klik – Invisible Army (2002, Chambermusik Records)
Highly Slept-On and “released” a lil’ “late in the game, Soul Kid Klik was a group that was formed by G-Clef da Mad Komposa of Ghetto Philharmonic, whom were formerly signed to Tuff City Records. When Jay “Wax” Garfield of the Garfield Brothers met G-Clef while doing some radio shows, G-Clef became managed by what was then known as GZA (yes…) Entertainment, which was co-owned by Genius from the Wu-Tang Clan. The crew of artists that G-Clef was then producing were known as the Soul Kid Klik, and were soon annexed under the Wu-Tang banner, as a Gza Entertainment act.
Although two of these recordings were recorded before 1994, when the SKK was not yet a Wu-Affiliated group, there has existed, for some time, a series of demos and studio recordings that were eventually to be released on Soul Kid Records as a full length album. However, with the collapse of relations between the Garfield Brothers and Genius, as well as internal turmoil within SKK, the group basically was disbanded, with the project left unfinished. Several ex-members of this now legendary group still work together and speak, but there, at this time, no discussions of any new material from the group as a whole. Here is the most complete representation of the album material and it’s dope, very much so! For just a small teaser peep the O.G. version of “Mortal Combat” below and prepare yourself for more of the same flavor in the form of “Invisible Army”!
