Record Label: High Times Records
Oakland rapper Del the Funky Homosapien rose to fame in the early 90s, when his unique voice and fresh outlook turned heads in an otherwise gangsta rap-dominated California hip-hop scene. Ironically a first cousin and protege of Ice Cube, Del’s wacky, unconventional style won him a legion of fans and helped elevate his crew Hieroglyphics to the top of the independent hip-hop scene that began to take shape in the late 90s.
Since then, Del has released acclaimed projects with the likes of Dan The Automater, Gorillaz, Def Jux, Tame One of Artifacts, and many more, becoming one of the most celebrated artists on hip-hop’s underground circuit.
Now, he’s back with a brand new purple 7” vinyl single, featuring the never-before-released track “Catch A Body”. As one of the first releases on the newly-relaunched High Times Records, this 7” is perfect for Del’s famously smoked-out fanbase.
