Artist Info: Del the Funkee Homosapien

Del the Funkee Homosapien was introduced to rap at a young age because of his famous cousin, Ice Cube. Del's style is much different than the gangster style of his cousin. He often raps using humor and talks about things from personal hygiene to video games. Del released his first CD, “I Wish My Brother George Was Here”, with the assistance of Cube. His second release “No Need for Alarm” used more jazz samples and was produced by Del. His third album was not released because he had difficulties with his label Elektra (bootlegs of this album were available on the internet and it was eventually released for sale on CD). His third release Both Sides of the Brain was released on his own label which he formed with friends from California. Del has collaborated for several albums with his label mates the Hieroglyphics and with Kid Koala and Dan the Automator on the concept album “Deltron: 3030”. Del is most widely known for his appearance on the Gorillaz song “Clint Eastwood”. It is expected that Del will release a new album called “The 11th Hour” this fall.

“It's important to practice good hygiene
At least if you wanna run with my team
I'm bout to get into some shit that I've seen
This fool's breath, I mean so bad it'll melt your ice cream”
- Del the Funkee Homosapien “If You Must”

“I create like a heathen
The first cycles of this virus I can send through a modem
Infiltration hits your station
No microsoft or enhanced dos will impede
Society thinks their safe when
Bingo! harddrive crashes from the rendering
Alot of hackers tryed virus's before
Vaporize your text like so much white out
I want it where a file replication is a chore
Lights out shut down the entire whitehouse
I dont want just a bug that could be corrected
Im erecting immaculate design
Break the nation down section by section
Even to the greatest minds its impossible to find”
- Del the Funkee Homosapien “Virus”
