Oakland’s iconic rapper (being Ice Cube’s cousin isn’t such a bummer after all), Del the Funky Homosapien [Teren Delvon Jones] has twenty years of rapping to his name and his golden gift of rhyme-making is aptly being offered up to fans in a forthcoming three-disc April release appropriately entitled The Golden Era [The Council]. 2010’s It Ain’t Legal Yet got decent attention, but with Del dusting off some rarities this time around, The Golden Era seems a far better venture: Funk Man and Automatik Statik — only available digitally previously– are included, along with brand-new material.
“The songs on “Golden Era” may not hail from rap’s golden era, but the flow he throws on “Raw” as seen above is certainly classic Del. Latecomers to his style will quickly realize why he’s beloved by hardcore hip-hop heads – he’s cocky, he’s confident, and he backs it up with an advanced vernacular and a willingness to forego traditional flow,” says RapReviews.com.
