Cookin Soul samples Street Fighter II on a beat

To celebrate 100,000 YouTube subscribers, Cookin Soul made a beat from the iconic SNES game.

Spanish hip hop producer/DJ Cookin Soul has followed in the footsteps of many producers and made a beat from a video game. But not just any video game.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo was influential with its introduction of super combos and air combo, Akuma, and a speed setting to counter the slowness of previous versions. The perfect game for a beat then.

Cookin Soul put this beat together as a celebration of reaching 100,000 subscribers and the video features some Spanish retro gamers waxing lyrical about Turbo. Everything’s in Spanish so if you don’t speak it, you won’t understand anything they’re saying but the beat is universal.
