iTunes Editors’ Notes

Del the Funky Homosapien has been dropping ultra-lyrical, brain-bending verses for more than two decades now. From his early crossover hits ("Dr. Bombay" and "Mistadobalina") through his collaborative work with Gorillaz and Deltron 3030 and his more recent, under-the-radar independent output, he has remained one of the game's most distinctive and reliably dope voices. The patriarch of the entire Hieroglyphics collective, Del has been increasingly busy, dropping new material at a breakneck pace. Since 2008, he's released at least one album per year, and on Attractive Sin he again joins forces with Parallel Thought (a.k.a. Jersey-based producers Drum and Knowledge; they worked together a few years back on Parallel Uni-Verses). They provide an appropriately funky foundation for D-E-L's lyrical gymnastics, crafting sample-drenched tracks overflowing with elastic bass lines, horn blasts, chopped guitars, tinkling pianos, and consistently strong drums. A great addition to Del's ever-growing discography, this is extraordinarily tight from start to finish. Check out "1520 Sedgewick," "Activated Sludge," and "Get to Drillin."

Dope from start 2 finish

I'm glad 2 hear Del & Parallel Thought team up again the "Parallel Uni-Verses" CD w/ Tame One was on the $, & this CD is as well. I haven't heard anything like this at all this year, this CD is 2 raw!
Straight spittin' from 1 of the best MC's in Hip-Hop over funk raw beats. Del packs the CD w/ nice concept tracks, check "Charlie Brown," or "1520 Sedgewick" he put serious thought in2 matching his rhymes w/ the beats which is a lost art nowadays. Only true school Hip-Hoppers will really appreciate this, some of yall might get lost w/ Del's patterns & word play. But 2 all young cats this what a real MC does 2 raw beats! You will not skip 1 track, this joint is raw from start 2 finish, buy it & then buy it again, it's that tight!

The greatest

Del is too ill. The only real mc left in the rap game.

No skips!

I really enjoyed listening to a new album from front to back without actually wanna to skip a track. Del's name alone holds weight but I've seen Parallel Thought's name creeping up here and there too. Solid production from them and the album was dope. Good buy If You wanna hear something more then whats on the radio. I'll definitely be checking for more from these guys.

Cousin of renowned gangster rapper Ice Cube, Del tha Funky Homosapien (real name Teren Delvon Jones) was born in Oakland, California on August 12, 1972, and got his start with Ice Cube's backing band, Da Lench Mob. But Del's rap isn't as grim or violent as Ice Cube's is; in fact, he's been known to include something in his music that's far too uncommon in most rap: humor. Signed to Elektra/Asylum, Del's debut release, I Wish My Brother George Was Here, was issued in 1991 and produced by Cube and,...
