Del tha Funkee Homosapien - 2014 - Iller Than Most

Del tha Funky Homosapien is a rapper and producer from Oakland, California. Iller Than Most is his eleventh solo album. Del tha Funky Homosapien is an underground rapper with impeccable lyricism that manages to be conscious but still fun and party making. The opening track Leader is an outright banger and one that I will add to the ongoing rotation. His production style on this album seems a little more raw and brings in more noises that tend towards the discordant side of things, garnering comparisons production wise to bands like Death Grips. As a full length solo album this is a tad disappointing but as a new mixtape between full lengths it's quite good. There are some genuine great songs on here like the aforementioned Leader, Mental Fitness, Militant, Wreckin The Upside, and Grand Royal but this album is more uneven than I've come to expect from Del. If you like your hip hop coming from the underground, wise but never forgetting to have fun, Del tha Funky Homosapien's Iller Than Most will serve well.
