Del The Funky Homosapien :: Skateboards, Stabbings & More

IMG_6534

As soon as I got word of Deltron 3030 going on tour for Event 2, I was hoping they would hit Europe as well. Or so to speak, Amsterdam. It definitely was on my “who to meet-bucket list” to shake hands with Del The Funky Homosapien and Dan the Automator. As I kept track of the tour, I was traveling from continent to continent myself and for a moment it looked like I was going to miss the show in Amsterdam. Luckily, schedules changed and I happened to be home the week that they were performing out here.

The show was incredibly dope! Kid Koala, Dan the Automator and Del the Funky Homosapien definitely did what they are best at. With the team that supported them, it must have been one of the coolest shows I have seen this year. Thanks to my friend Domino (Hieroglyphics) who is touring with them, I got a chance to interview Del. Though Dan was not feeling well enough to do an interview, I am glad I got a chance to meet him, as I knew his work from other projects (Gorillaz, Handsomeboy Modeling School etc.) besides Deltron 3030.

Seeing the interview was pretty last minute and I wanted to keep it rather short, I decided to pick Del’s brain by throwing words and names at him, like I did with Skeme Richards. It’s a great way to get to know someone. Del shares his thoughts on his latest passion for skateboarding, feels that Public Enemy and De La Soul are equally icons in their own way and shares a story about him and his brother that not many people know of.

Shout out to Domino for making this happen.

Next to being part of the mighty hip hop group Athletic Mic League, he also has dropped quite a few solo projects after the release of his debut solo LP, “The Golden Hour” in 2008.
