Classic Era Hip-Hop West Coast MC Del the Funky Homosapien (co-founder & member of the Hieroglyphics Imperium collective and record label; also on a random factoid, he's Ice Cube's cousin) has decided to drop a free album for his fans independently via Funnyman Entertainment called Funk Man: The Stimulus Package.
Being involved with Hip-Hop for just about 2 decades now (with this new album being his 14th project since 1991's I Wish My Brother George Was Here), the brother definitely has his skills down on the mic as well as behind the boards with the production (with the exception of one track this entire album was produced by Del).
Some folks may think Del's flow and subject matter can sometimes be a bit on the weirdo side (the Deltron 3030 LP anyone?), but give this project a chance - there are some bangers on here.
Give the project a download below (and check out one of the singles, "Get It Right Now" as well) and hopefully, you'll dig some of this cool independent music vibe as well!
My personal favorite tracks from the Funk Man: The Stimulus Package LP are "Straight From the Big Bad West Coast" and "And They Thought That Was Hell" - what are yours?
