Deltron 3030 – Deltron 3030 (2000)

Production wise this album owns thanks to Dan the Automator.  Then add Del The Funky Homosapien’s funky ass rhyming abilities and have DJ Kid Koala put it all together and BAM there you have it.  One of the most interesting and tightly produced hip hop albums of all time.  People get all high and mighty and try to clown this album for being ‘nerd rap’.  Well if its nerd rap then give me some big black rimmed glasses, a pocket protector and a calculator and sign me the fuck up because I’m down with it.  Deltron 3030 takes you on a journey into the future into the year, you guessed it, 3030.  They explore the possibilities of the whats gonna be goin on in about 1000 years from now, droppin some futuristic rap on ya.  Dan the Automator has to be one of the most creative hip hop producers to ever do it.  And I still can’t believe Del is Ice Cube’s cousin.  No disrespect to Cube because I love him too but Del is straight genius-level.  If you consider yourself a hip hop fan at all then this has to be in your playlist.  I can’t wait for the day when they drop another gem on us.
