Shaliek (or Big Sha aka Poetry) recorded a single, “Reload The Clip”, for Kult Recs in 1994. Kult was a New York based house/dance label that hadn't release any other hip hop artists. About 20 test pressings were made, with studio time funded by the group, but the record was never released. A label called Funkin Recs bootlegged the test press soon after and a small number were pressed, just ripped from that very rare test press. The joints for the 12inch were recorded at Bryan's Studio in Astoria, Queens and due to limited funds, each track had to be tied up in a matter of 4 hours!
Producer Artwell Smart came up in Corona Queens and he, Sha & Shabay had a group called Zig Zag Zig. Artwell was in high school with Dr Butcher, original X-Men member and producer. Artwell learned a whole lot about production from Butcher, who went on to do scratches on Kool G Rap & Polo's albums, as well as production on G Rap's & Akinyele's mid 90s material, among others. And on the subject of Kool G Rap, Artwell was in an early unknown rap group with him called Rappateers - all music now lost, alas. Back then Artwell was known as Spanish Fly (due to his Puerto Rican origins) and they gave the last copy of their demo tape to Herbie The Luv Bug. A short time after, G Rap signed with Marley and the Rappateers were over.
Chopped Herring gained access to the original DAT recordings of the "Reload The Clip" 12inch single as well as 2 incredible, unheard demo joints off cassette. Better don’t sleep on this folks!!!
