"One can't talk about classic '90s hip-hop without talking about Del the Funky Homosapien, one of the genre's more eccentric figures. Though he's primarily famous today for his guest appearances with Gorillaz and Handsome Boy Modeling School, Del has inspired new generations of alternative hip-hop artists with his humorous lyrics, and eclectically funky production values. It all began here with his 1991 album, I Wish My Brother George Was Here. Del's debut has been heralded as a benchmark album for alternative hip-hop, bolstered by P-Funkinspired beats produced by Ice Cube, (Del's cousin) and featuring the underground hits 'Dr. Bombay' and 'Mistadobalina.' (#9 on the 1992 Hot Rap Tracks chart.) Equal parts clever, thought-provoking, and goofy, I Wish My Brother George Was Here has been credited with injecting some humor and irreverence into the otherwise dour West Coast hip-hop culture of the 90s. Traffic Entertainment Group is proud to reissue this classic album from a classic era, so that new generations may be exposed to Del The Funky Homosapien's witty and innovative rhymes." Includes fold out poster of original artwork and a classic "parental advisory" sticker.
