Del The Funky Homosapien

For most of Del the Funky Homosapien's career, we've had to wait years for him to come down from the mountain with a stone disc etched in dizzying hieroglyphics. Now he's producing prolifically — since 2008, the Oakland rapper has released four LPs. And it was only a few weeks ago that Del, a.k.a. Sir Dzl, tweeted, "got the samples loaded to this new iPad, 'bout to master this thing on this trip." "This thing" is Golden Era, a new '90s-flavored album he is releasing as part of a three-pack with 2009's Funk Manand Automatik Statik.
