Del the Funky Homosapien – “Get It Right Now”

“The Homosapien is one hell of an entertaining MC” – YRB

The Song:

Del the Funky Homosapien may have a name that is recognized by millions but he isn’t immune to the problems the rest of us face. When it comes down to it, he is just like every other American; he too, feels the effects of the recession. In light of our shared economic plight, Sir Diesel has prepared for us a free, 13-point stimulus package in the form of his new album Funk Man. The opening track kicks off his plan to turn our problems around with an aggressive funk-charged bass line and an even more aggressive demand to “Get It Right Now!,” meaning to handle whatever it is you need to do to keep thriving and stay in control of your life. The hard-hitting funk of his self-produced joint literally hammers his message into your brain by way of your ears, and gives anyone the motivation to take charge of their own affairs and get theirs. Del explains his seemingly effortless creative process behind making the song:

“With this song I wanted to make something I could perform and create myself, you know, something I could do all on my own. There was nothing hard about it, actually. I wrote out the rap, the music, the beat, the whole thing, and got it recorded in like three hours. My favorite part of making this song, just like with all my other songs, was the whole composition of it.”

“The chorus pretty much says it all, but if there’s one main message, it’s that life is short, and what you want to do you need to do now; don’t procrastinate. If anything is standing in my way I can’t let it stop me, I need to get it right now!”

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.

The Background:

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
