Del Tha Funkee Homosapien Tickets for Sale

One should never undervalue the Funky Homosapien's impingement on hip hop, specially, the Northern California hip hop. Del transformed the way hip hop was canned for some artists in the Bay Area and helped engender what is now a prosperous underground score. Before Del's debut album, the absolute majority of Bay Area hip hop imitated the expressive style of the legendary Too Short and several other gangstas around the area. The content of the songs by and large implicated such disillusioned topics as pimps and hos, bammer weed, and shooting and killing. In late 1991, with the release of I Wish My Brother George Was Here, Del verified MCs could extradite dope rhymes about everyday situations, such "as deadbeat friends crashing at your house or misadventures on public transportation". One of the founders of the powerful Hieroglyphics crew, Del has always been something of an odd ball when it came to recorded material in comparison to the more self-aggrandizing-and jactitation styles of fellow Hiero-mates Souls Of Mischief and Casual. He's never constricted himself to a single subject or production style. He has end-rhymed on the core of the funk and how to know also, if one is faking it, body odor, video games, people not being true to themselves, the importance of dental hygiene, and has embarked into fantasy, cyberpunkish region always left to industrial or jungle producers. Hieroglyphics had deeply engraved themselves as a force to be reckoned with inside the hip hop community. No Need, Del's new album was a total turn around from his previous attempt, which brought forth darker and much harder beats, as well as a immensely original lyrical flare.

Del was raised in Oakland, California. He collaborated with Gorillaz for two songs on their debut album, both of which became singles: "Clint Eastwood" and "Rock the House". He was portrayed as a ghost in their videos. Del's lyrics oftentimes indicate his curiosity, contributing humor and melodic themes that are different from mainstream hip hop. His songs have discussed intergalactic rap battles, video games, bad hygiene, and more. In 2000, the song "Positive Contact" from Deltron 3030 was featured in the game Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX.
