Del the Funky Homosapien and Tame One Parallel Uni-Verses
In this Parallel Uni-Verse, that funk you like is back in style—if that funk is the laid-back, loop-heavy beat of '90s hip-hop overlaid with amiable wordplay harking back to Native Tongues and the Pharcyde. Del brings the malleable flow and distinctive voice of the West, while Tame One swings with the dry, aggressive flow of his roots in East Coast groups Artifacts and Weathermen, but over producer Parallel's digable planet of vintage midtempo and jazzy beats, they bond over a shared history of growing up amid hip-hop's first truly national creative explosion, reminiscing over the greats and tearing up today's rappers in equal measure.
