Del the Funky Homosapien – “Get It Right Now” “This is for the real people that take the truth and ingest it / Let it radiate in the soul and manifest it”
Critical Praise for Del:
“…Del’s reputation has remained strong in both fan and critic circles.” – Thrasher Magazine
“The Homosapien is one hell of an entertaining MC” – YRB
Del the Funky Homosapien is dropping some major knowledge in his recent video “Get It Right Now,” in which he encourages all to cease the procrastination. Whatever plans you have in the making, it’s time to move on them and Del provides the perfect musical backdrop to get you motivated. Over an urgent yet stripped down beat and the background of Del’s actual home and lab, his funky vocal stylings ask “Why wait, why debate?” With direction by longtime Hieroglyphics collaborator Grant James, “Get it Right Now” is the logical choice for the first single of Del’s new free album Funk Man (The Stimulus Package). The song’s critical message of progression speaks not only to the music industry, but to Del’s longtime fans as well. How else would Del have made it this long in the game without moving forward with his vision?
Speaking of procrastination, why not download Del’s new album NOW. It’s free. It’s simple. The wait for the Eleventh Hour was 6 years. Del came back in one year with Funkman, and it’s completely free. There is absolutely no excuse not to do it. Get it right now.

Funk Man (The Stimulus Package) marks Del the Funky Homosapien’s 14th project of a hip-hop career that spans almost two decades. Starting at the tender age of 17 as protégé to his cousin, Ice Cube, Del quickly rose to the top of the underground hip hop scene with his albums, I Wish My Brother George Was Here (1991) and No Need for Alarm (1993), both released through Elektra Records. Soon after parting ways with the label, Del helped found the Hieroglyphics family, comprised of notable emcees Pep Love, the Souls of Mischief, Casual, and Domino. In 1998 the critically acclaimed album 3rd Eye Vision was the first to be released under the Hieroglyphics Imperium label and since then Del has had consistent success with his solo and joint efforts, including Deltron 3030 (2000), Gorillaz (2001), Full Circle (2003), and Eleventh Hour (2008) to name a few. Funk Man (The Stimulus Package) features more of Del’s signature style, as this high-energy album is comprised of raw lyrics, driving rhythms, and Del’s undeniable funkiness. Released via Funnyman Entertainment on April 7th, Funk Man (The Stimulus Package) is available for free via http://delthefunkyhomosapien.bandcamp.com/.
