Del The Funky Homosapien on putting more thought into the lyrics for Deltron's new album

Twelve years in the making, the sequel to Deltron 3030 has attained mythical stature in many underground hip hop circles. The original -- a turn-of-the-millenium sci-fi concept record that sprang from the collaboration of Del the Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala -- balanced a dark, post-apocalyptic technological allegory with the levity of comedic interludes doing justice to the standard set by Prince Paul and De La Soul. But after more than a decade, doubts had set in whether a follow-up would ever see the light of day.
