I’m rotating Deltron 3030’s self titled release. Not much to say besides this is a must for any hip hop fan.
Deltron 3030 being Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Dan the Automator, and Kid Koala, “I want y’all to meet Deltron Zero, and Automator”.
Prior to Deltron, Dan the Automator worked on the excellent Dr. Octagon album, Dr. Octagonecologyst. Another must for hip hop fans. Anyway, to perhaps save a little time, Dr. Octagon is one of Kool Keith’s aliases.
Del tha Funkee Homosapien is Ice Cube’s cousin, his debut goes back to 1991 with the release of I Wish My Brother George Was Here. Deltron 3030 also featured Damon Albarn on the tracks “State of the Nation”, the intro track, and “Time Keeps on Slipping”. The precursor to a little group called Gorillaz. Deltron 3030 was released May 23, 2000.
There isn’t too much else I can add that cannot be found on the web. I can add some lyrics though. That is a good part of Del, (and hip hop) some of the lyrics. Deltron 3030 takes place in the year 3030.
Crush your corporations with a mild touch
Trash your whole computer system
And revert you to papyrus.
Upgrade your grey matter, cause one day it may matter.
I’m glad I love music and life
cuz it’s easy to see the pain and strife and end it all tonight
