Man, every once in a hot minute do we get a show as cool as this come to town. I remember listening to Del when I was in high school, i'd sit in art class with my headphones in just lose track of time vibing to this man's lyrical genious. If you haven't heard of Del the let me introduce you... Maybe this song called "Clint Eastwood" featuring Del will ring a bell... I garauntee you've heard it on the radio.
In real life, Del is also cousin of seminal west coast rapper Ice Cube, Del began his career writing lyrics for Ice Cube's band, Da Lench Mob. In 1991, with the help of Ice Cube, Del released his first solo album, "I Wish My Brother George Was Here", at the age of 18. The album was a commercial success largely due to the popularity of the hit single, "Mistadobalina." Ultimately Del, who was not pleased with the limited musical range of the album, severed his production-artist relationship with Ice Cube for his next album, "No Need for Alarm".
Also, on the bill are local hip hop favorites Big Blu House. Known locally as one of the few live Hip Hop bands, they mix a sound of intelligent lyrics over big beats, funky bass and delayed out Rhodes Piano and Wurlitzer. Self described as "Modern Hip Hop with Old School Sensibility", they have played with Hip Hop icons such as Nappy Roots and Bubba Sparx are currently supporting thier sophtmore release titled "Todos Diez".
