Of all the Bay Area hip hop crews, one of the longest lasting, most talented, and least annoying in my humble opinion would have to be The Hieroglyphics crew. Undoubtedly the most famous and funniest of these cats is Del The Funky Homosapien.. and he’s wrappin’ up a big tour and at The Fillmore on Thursday Night.
A guy gutsy enough to flaunt that sort of moniker at the raw & reptilian rap heavyweight gun totin’ guys convention just has to be a good sport. Del , has been a verbally flowin’ fly guy on a genre’ crossing linguistic mission for over a decade, and this time around he’s on a solo type tour, but bringing up & comer openers like A-Plus, Motion Man, Bukue One, and SF’s amazing turntablist hero Mike Relm.
To check out some vids & beat packed tunes in mp3 format, giving ya a taste of Del & the multi-faceted & frenzied mixology that has had scratch-meister Mike Relm collaborating with everyone from the Beastie Boys to a children’s book author… click ever onward my friends. See ya after the JUMP!
