Product Description

One can t talk about classic 90s hip-hop without talking about Del The Funky Homosapien, one of the genre s more eccentric figures. Though he s primarily famous today for his guest appearances with Gorillaz & Handsome Boy Modeling School, Del has inspired new generations of alternative hip-hop artists with his humorous lyrics, and eclectically funky production values. It all began here with his 1991 album, I Wish My Brother George Was Here. Del s debut has been heralded as a benchmark album for alternative hip-hop, bolstered by P-Funkinspired beats produced by Ice Cube, (Del s cousin) and featuring the underground hits Dr. Bombay and Mistadobalina. (#9 on the 1992 Hot Rap Tracks chart.) Equal parts clever, thought-provoking, and goofy, I Wish My Brother George Was Here has been credited with injecting some humor and irreverence into the otherwise dour West Coast hip-hop culture of the 90s. Traffic Entertainment Group is proud to re-issue this classic album from a classic era, so that new generations may be exposed to Del The Funky Homosapien s witty and innovative rhymes.

Del tha Funkee Homosapien delivers a comedic and witty debut, which lyrically has highlighted him as one of the great Hip Hop talents of the last ten years. This album features epic storytelling flowing over impeccably produced beats, which were over seen by his cousin, Ice Cube. Del has a penchant for a supreme lyrical flow that allows the listener to be hypnotised by his wordplay. He is truly one of the great wordsmiths of our time and deservedly has gone on to feature heavily in Deltron 3030 and the Gorrillaz. Any fan of those should explore this hidden gem as it will allow you to see where this master lyricist began plying his trade. I lost this tape when I was a kid and have recently been able to get hold of a copy. It's even better now than it was then.

Out of all of Del's albums, this probably won't be in the hall of fame. For the most part, the musc isn't great however his lyrics sre. The only problem is that therefore listening to it is not a fantastic experience. If you need a good Del album try no need for alarm as it has rockin beatz to match the intricacy of the lyrics themselves
