For those who missed Deltron 3030 in 2000 then you should check out this unique LP. The rap opera concept album was set in a dystopian year 3030 and casts Del in the role of Deltron Zero, a disillusioned mech soldier and interplanetary computer prodigy rebelling against a 31st century New World Order. In a world where evil oligarchs suppress both human rights and hip-hop, Del fights rap battles against a series of foes, becoming Galactic Rhyme Federation Champion. The album achieve significant critical as well as featuring contributions from Damon Albarn, which then served as the basis for Gorillaz’ self-titled debut.
