One of Rap’s Last True Enigmas

One of Rap’s Last True Enigmas

One of rap’s last true enigmas, Del the Funky Homosapien leaves a thumbprint on the few things he touches. After writing for the rapper Ice Cube, his cousin, in 1990, Del sketched his own wacky slacker style as an alternative to big-budget sounds, perfected on the blissed-out verses he lent to the Gorillaz for their 2001 trip-hop hit, “Clint Eastwood.” The Oakland cult hero has since led an unhurried career of cherished offshoot projects and sporadic appearances; he materializes at Brooklyn Bowl on Sept. 12, before floating off again.
