Del The Funky Homosapien - Funk Man (The Stimulus Package)

Bay Area's Del The Funky Homosapien is among the most consistent MC's in quality hip-hop. His diverse solo albums, work with his crew Hieroglyphics, the Deltron 3030 project(s), guest-spots...Del is usually on-point.

His last full length in 2008, '
Eleventh Hour', admittedly, was a bit of a disappointment to me. Del had dropped connections on the production aspect of his work, further pursuing his knowledge and understanding of musical theory.
Del usually takes his time releasing new works, so it went completely over my head that he released a new full-length just last month. The album was released on his site as a free download, his official 7th full-length, '
Funk Man (The Stimulus Package)'.
Even after one listen, Del has brought it back fresh.

Some absolute-essential Del albums if you're unfamiliar: '
No Need For Alarm', 'Both Sides of the Brain', and his project with Dan the Automator/Kid Koala, 'Deltron 3030'. After that, you'll likely be scrounging for whatever you can find, and take it from me -- it's quality (minus the record label fuckery of 'The Elektra Years').
Future developments include another 3030 album in the works, some collabs (like his project with Tame One), and whatever else he drops at will.

Del has slowly transformed from "Del tha Funkee Homosapien" to "Del The Funky Homosapien", but he still brings the realness. Essential.

"Get It Right Now"
