Black Radical MK II released his debut single, 'We Outta Here' b/w B Boys B Wise' in 1987 as well as appearing on a few Coldcut tracks as Bass Inc., before releasing the classic 'Monsoon' independently on Coldcut's, 2 The Bone label in 1989. It was initially meant to appear on Coldcut's album 'What's That Noise' but, the label Big Life didn't want to put it on. In the words of Black Radical "Yazz walked into the studio and Coldcut introduced us and asked her to listen to the track. She stood motionless, looked at us like we were f***ing mad or something, she looked at Matt (Coldcut) as if he was f***ing mad and said, 'Oh yeah, that's nice'". It never went on because Yazz and Big Life were offended by it.....their loss our gain. It became a massive underground hit and even reached number one for many weeks on Germany's Hip Hop chart.
He then signed to Mango Street, the same label as Overlord X, and released the long awaited 'Rippin Up The Industry' in 1990 as well as his excellent debut album 'The Undiluted Truth' featuring the brilliant 'Crossroads'.
Coming back in 1995 with his second album 'Double Edged Sword', Black Radical stuck with his tough talking content, but voiced his views over more laid back production. After a 3 year break Black Radical returned in 1998, when he released his third and most underrated album 'Khaos & Konfusion' featuring the excellent 'The Last Knock' a take on Doug E Fresh's 'La Di Da Di'.
