REVIEW: Del the funky homosapien: It Ain’t Illegal Yet

Leave a comment

There was about an eight year dry spell for Del albums but since he’s come back he’s been rolling out albums like no one else. One thing that’s hard to keep up when you’ve got such a high volume of products like this is the quality, but somehow Del continues to pull it off. Here’s another album from the funky homosapien, released as his past few have been via donation based download. I think what stands out most about this album is the beats, they sound like they were produced by an alien working in his basement. Some of them are really fucking weird but they all work, it’s great. Del still has his great flow and lyric base here as well, it’s another all around outstanding album by the man. Make sure you go get it as soon as you get to a computer…like now!

1. Don’t Stop Rappin’
2. Excuse to Let Loose
3. U don’t hear me tho
4. That Feelin

Alright this is the first time I think I’ve attempted this, a couple notes first here. I’m leaving ‘Iron Maiden: Flight 666′ of the list here because Iron Maiden is in a league of their own and will always capture the top spot with an unfair advantage. Second note I’m also leaving off ‘Death: For The Whole World To See’ it was released this year but actually happened in the 70′s, so I’m not sure if it qualifies. If I leave it on it would most likely be in the top 5 because it is amazingly awesome. Also I’m not including 4 that would have most likely made it, “R.A. the Rugged Man: Legendary Classics Vol 1″, “Deep Sleep: Three Things At Once”, “Psyched To Die: Year One” and “Drag the River: Bad at Breaking Up” because they are compilations. And lastly I’m not including “Judas Priest: A Touch of Evil: Live” because it is a live album.

REVIEW: Del The Funky Homosapien: Automatik Statik

Leave a comment

Del took eight years to give us a new album after Deltron 3030. Since the release of his new album he’s been pumping them out on a pretty regular basis. He was stock piling or holding out on us or something. Most of these releases have come for free on his website. This new one “Automatik Statik” was another web site download, but this time instead of just giving it away you had to make a donation, which is an even better idea. You can get the new Del album for as little as $3! As far as the album itself it’s what you’d come to expect from Del. The beats are fun and interesting for the most part, his flow is great as always, we’ve got eleven new Del songs that fit nicely into his catalog, no throw away stuff here. Head on over to Del’s spot on the web and get this.

1.Dzl Funk
2.Dammit
3.For those who know
4.Weapon x Militant
5.From a-to-z
6.Guaranteed

Gold Dust Media helps us get some more of those Del tunes he’s been cranking out lately. This time Del has teamed up with Tame One, and let me just say this album is fucking awesome. This may be the best thing Del’s released since Deltron 3030 and the best Tame stuff in a while too. The beats aren’t Del’s normal style but everything else is unmistakable.

1. Intro (Magic)
2. Keep It Up
3. Flashback
4. The Franchise
5. Specifics
6. I’m A
7. Before This
8. We Taking Over

Info:
Cousin of Ice Cube, Del may actually be better, but gets less than half the fame. He’s been at it for almost 20 years and Del’s always on point. He’s done solo albums, projects with other people and has put out stuff as part of Hieroglyphics. Deltron 3030 may be the best hip-hop album of all time, too bad it took eight years for him to follow-up with something. But it seems he was stockpiling in that time because sense then he’s been steadily releasing albums. If you’re looking for some good stuff you can never go wrong with the Funkee Homosapien.
