Del The Funky Homosapien

Interview

Friday, October 30, 2009

This West Coast hip-hopper hit stardom in 2001, but he wasn't born for the limelight. His reputation as hip-hop's oddball stems from his raps about science fiction, "Dungeons and Dragons," and public transit. Del explains to Kurt how his path diverged from that of his cousin, gangsta pioneer Ice Cube.

Watch the music video for "Flashback" from Del's new album Parallel Uni-Verses with Tame One
