Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Mike Realm, Motion Man, Bukue One, A-Plus at Knitting Factory 9/29/06

Self-respecting b-boys/girls should need little prompting to shuffle their backpacks into the Knit for this veritable cornucopia of hip-hop heroics. Tonight’s headliner is the original indie rapper, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien of the eternal Hieroglyphics crew. Dropping underground classics ever since his seminal 1991 debut, I Wish My Brother George Was Here, Del belies his deceptively laid-back style with stiletto-sharp wit and future-shocked forays into sci-fi fantasia (see Deltron 3030, Gorillaz). DJ phenomenon Mike Realm scratches everything he can get his hands on into an exhaustive multimedia pop-culture explosion sure to leave skid marks on your mind. Kool Keith affiliate Motion Man will keep it freaky, Bukue One brings his skater style from the Bay area, and A-Plus righteously reps the Souls of Mischief. Now where my heads at?
