Deltron 3030 - Quite Possibly the Best Hiphop Album I've Ever Heard
 
And if it isn't, it's certainly my favourite. Easily the best concept album, that's for sure. I know it's been out for quite a while, but I just recently caught word of it, and I just finished listening to it.

I was blown away.

The whole thing is a masterpiece. The story is fantastic, with the lyrics keeping a relatively strict attachment to it. The lyrics are tight, nothing absolutely mind-blowing, but well above average. The production though, that's where this thing shines through. It uses really eerie and somewhat futuristic beats, setting the tone for the entire album.

It's amazing, if you haven't checked it out, do so as quickly as possible.

Here's the first track, 3030, which sets the story that the rest of the album weaves through.

I'm still in awe right now, this was ridiculous.

This album was the music taste test that me and my music snob friends used in high school to determine coolness.

del i'm feeling like a ghost in a shell
i wrote this in jail playing host to a cell
for the pure verbal, they said my sentance was equivalent to
murder
just another hurdle, i bounced through a portal
i knew they had the mindstate of mere mortals
my ears morphed to receptors to catch ya
every word about gravity control
and the families they hold for handsome ransoms
on the run with a handgun blast bioforms, I am more
than a planetwide manhunt with cannons
will make me abondon my foolish plan of uprising
f**k dying I hijack a mech
controlling with my magical chance so battle advance
through centuries a hip hop legacy, megaspeed
hyperwarp to automator's crib and light the torch

they can't fight the force,
victory is ours once we strike the source
enterprising wise men look to the horizon
thinking more capitalism is the wisdom
and in prison all citizens in power with rythm
we keep the funk alive by talking with idioms
that just flowed too smooth... he was reaching a lil bit in the first verse with the vocab, but this verse was smooth. i might have to give this dude a look

edit:

didn't know this was del tha funky homosapien under just "del", i've seen him live a few times and actually met him backstage at a devin the dude concert. i've heard one album of his but it was kinda weak compared to this

Check out the whole album. I'm pretty sure he's the same guy on a lot o the Gorillaz songs too. Or at least a few of them, although I can't remember which.

Mastermind
Positice Contact

Great stuff.

Yes he is.

Trivia: He is Ice Cube's lil cousin. Cube's production company produced his early stuff. Del was a prodigy.

I love this album. Dan the Automator is an amazing producer and Del is one of the most creative emcees out there. I've heard that the two are making a sequel. Hope it comes out soon. Also, has anyone heard Del's new album? I was thinking about getting it but I didnt really like the first single.

Del's "Future Development" is one of my favorite albums of ALL TIME. Was it even ever released on CD?

According to Wiki, it was originally released in Japan as a cassette, but then rereleased a few years later in the US.

Just found a guy who has it, I'm about to give it a listen. Should be good.

As far as concept sc-fi hip hop albums go Deltron is good, but Dr. Octagon is the best IMO. Its Kool Keith and Dan the Automater. Dan Automater produced the whole thing with the exception of Prince Paul who produced one song.

Dr. Octagon set the standard for all the fans of the genre should listen to it.

One of my fav albums all time. I might be biased to Hiero stuff though :D

:cheers:

I like Dr. Octagonolagyst more than I do Deltron 3030. Deltron is great, but Kool Keith is a ****ing maniac and has a twisted edge I enjoy. Deltron is very safe and poppy. Dr. Ock is on some other ****.

"Hung from a tree in Johannesburg, halo's were found at the landing site" that's crazy **** right there. I used to get stoned and listen to this album just tripping balls.
