Real Name:
Marquette Hawkins
A DJ/emcee hailing from Compton, CA. Most noted for joining the World Class Wreckin' Cru (1983-1985) and his contribution for the break-through west coast electro-rap records "Surgery" and "Juice". Shortly after leaving the Cru, Cli-N-Tel along with Andre Manuel released a well-regarded electro record titled "2030" on Unknown DJ's Techno Hop label in 1986. Two years later he resurfaced on Sutra Records releasing a pair of singles. However Cli-N-Tel eventually focused his attention on creating film screenplays, moving away from releasing albums. In 1993 he contributed a track to the Dr. Dre anthology album, "Concrete Roots". During the late 90's Cli-N-Tel stationed himself in Japan working on several hip-hop tracks and releasing a full-length album entitled "Shining on the Funk" on the Japanese Blue Dolphin label.
