Del the Funkee Homosapien may be Ice Cube's cousin, but he's always hung in the background, remaining more of an underground
favorite than a mainstream star. It's just as well—his music is a lot more goofy, almost reveling in a geeky sense
of humor at times while being sharply poignant in its commentary about city life. Check him out when he comes to spit rhymes
live in your town.
Born Teren Jones, Del has been a critics' darling ever since releasing his debut album, 1991's I Wish My Brother George
Was Here. He was still a teenager when the record came out, but it became a touchstone for West Coast hip-hop aficionados
looking for something out of left-field. If that's what they came for, they certainly found it here, and on subsequent releases.

Del the Funkee Homosapien is especially well known for being a third of the outfit known as Deltron 3030, which put out
a single, self-titled LP with producer Dan the Automator and turntablist Kid Koala. It was a bizarre, far-reaching sci-fi
epic that proved how far the rapper could go when pressed to stretch the medium of hip-hop to its limits. Check him out on
stage with some Del the Funkee Homosapien tickets.
