Del Tha Funkee Homosapien

I remember Mistadobalina and thought it was jokes for most part.

The way I fronted on artists and albums is legendary. It has been stated many times on this blog. I almost wrote Del The Funkee Homosapien off as something of a comedian back then. This is the story of how one of Del's albums made its way into my consciousness.

In 1990, I first heard the name Del The Funkee Homosapien on Ice Cube's Amerikka`s Most Wanted.

I learned he was Cube's cousin and thought that was cool. It took 1993 for me to really appreciate Del The Funkee Homosapien as an artist.

No Need For Alarm is to this day Del's best album in my humble opinion. 

I was very happy to have brought home No Need For Alarm from a DJ's record sale. 

If there was any Del album I would have wanted to own, I now can say I own it.

Del The Funky Homosapien - Catch A Bad One by Fasho1123

Back in the early 1990s, nearly every piece of hip hop was good. Even the weaker hip hop had some merit. If you don't believe me, reach for The Pharcyde, Black Sheep, Leaders of the New School and Souls of Mischief and compare it to anything released since 2000. There are few post 2000 albums that can go toe to toe or track for track with early 90s hip hop. 

Del, along with Dan The Automator & Kid Koala as Deltron 3030, closed the Montreal Jazz Festival on July 6, 2014.
