A member of the San Francisco-based Hieroglyphics. He released two albums on Elektra in the early 90's; The first, I Wish My Brother George Was Here was produced by Del's cousin Ice Cube. It sounded like a lot of Cube's funk stuff, but without the gangsta posing. Del's second album was half self-produced, without any trace of Ice Cube. This is for the best; No Need For Alarm is one of the best hip hop albums, period. Highlights are Catch a Bad One, Wack M.C.'s, Wrong Place, and Miles to Go. Checking this shit out is a moral imperative.

Del was dropped from Elektra, apparently in the middle of a new album, Future Development. I found this on a boot within 3 minutes of starting a search, so you shouldn't have too hard a time finding a copy.

His latest album, was relased in 2000 under the Hieroglyphics' label. Can't say a whole lot about it as I haven't heard too much of it....
