No Need For Alarm Del Tha Funky Homosapien 2LP ( pre order)



Label Traffic Genre Hip Hop Artist Del Tha Funky Homosapien Released 12/03/21 Catalogue Number TEG755061LP After breaking out of the Bay Area underground scene in the early 90s Del The Funky Homosapien made a radical turn with his sophomore release, 93’s No Need For Alarm. Casting aside the familiar G-funk vibe of his debut, perhaps as No Need was produced without the involvement of his cousin Ice Cube, he moved into a jazzier – some would say more East Coast direction on this project. The verbal content on No Need shifted as well, moving away from comic interludes and towards a focus onbattle raps. No Need For Alarm was produced with his Oakland based Hieroglyphics Crew with Domino, A-Plus and Casual all contributing beats making the record one of the three Hiero Golden Age releases (along with Souls of Mischief’s ’93 til Infinity and Casual’s Fear Itself).
