Del Tha Funky Homosapien
I have been a big fan of Del’s ever since his debut album, “I Wish My Brother George Was Here”in 1991. He has since gone on to release 3 more solo albums, recorded with his crew The Hieroglyphics, collaborated with Dan The Automator on the Deltron 3030 project, as well as Handsome Boy Modelling School, and scoring a global hit with the Gorillaz on the track “Clint Eastwood”.
Del is now set to release his first solo album since 2000’s “Both Sides Of The Brain”, instead of being released through his own Hieroglyphics label as last releases, it will be released on El-P’s Def Jux label. Del insists that the new album, “11th Hour”, is 100% Del, so the off-key, heavy, classic style hip hop we’ve come to love from the man with possibly the best name in hip hop!
To celebrate this news I have put up Del’s collab with El-P, “Offspring”, taken from Both Sides Of The Brain. Check it out, and make sure to keep your eyes open for the new album!
