    Product Details

    Summary

    In the early 90s hip hop took a turn and gangsta-style rap dominated, making waves off the West Coast that rattled throughout the world. The East Coast's dominance was descending despite the success and positivity of Native Tongues acts like De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, who favored thought-provoking humor and cleverness over gangsta rap's grittiness and grim outlook. It was in this landscape that Oakland, CA's Del The Funky Homosapien emerged in 1991, with his debut release I Wish My Brother George Was Here. Cribbing equally from the East Coast's irreverence and wit, and the West Coast's P-Funk inspired production, (the album was produced by Del's cousin Ice Cube) Del's debut has rightly been heralded as a benchmark album for underground hip hop. I Wish My Brother George Was Here not only produced the underground classics "Dr. Bombay" and "Mistadobalina" (#9 on the 1992 Hot Rap Tracks Charts), but also set the scene for the success of the other less gangsta West Coast artists like The Pharcyde, Digable Planets, and of course Del's compatriots in Souls of Mischief. Above all else, Del is credited with injecting some much needed light-heartedness at a moment when it was truly needed. Since his debut Del has gone on to work alongside Gorillaz, Wu-Tang Clan, El-P, Handsome Boy Modeling School, and as a member of the acclaimed hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030, and even with Dinosaur Jr. Traffic Entertainment now presents I Wish My Brother George Was Here as a special double LP reissue, featuring the original artwork, and all of The Funky Homosapien's witty and innovative rhymes intact.

    Comment: I am looking to buy Dels earlier music on vinyl, but Elektra has already tried to steal Dels money. Looks like I'll keep searching.

    Comment: Dante Ross signed the best of them and Elektra was where it was at interms of labels at the time, in '91 Del was just 17 and he had a whole fulsome career ahead of him, I was just 13 and always up on watching episodes of Yo! Mtv Raps with my VCR pressing record... like stayin up late tryin to tape underground rap music from college radio stations like kzsu and tryin to get a good reception from the antenna with foil on the lower end of the dial. this album attaches memories for me, maybe about 21 years later now looking back and knowing of this album for so long before Hiero came to be is just a humbling experience just following a culture of Hip Hop from a young age. the love for Hip Hop started in the middle of '88 when I was ten years old. I dont know what ten year olds nowadays do but my experience with Hip Hop was a journey or should I say an adventure. those days without the internet, any information you gathered about music by word of mouth was more exciting and valuable just to only know of and you got it no other way else... no social media etc.
