Wu-Tang Clan and Run The Jewels have proved to be the catalyst for a Deltron 3030 reunion show.
Later this year, Wu-Tang and RTJ will be teaming up for a special show at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre with legendary hip-hop trio Deltron 3030 reuniting to support the two groups. Deltron 3030 are comprised of Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala. Their eponymous debut was released in 2000 and was followed up with Event 2 in 2013.
Dan discussed the possibility of a third album during a conversation with Red Bull Radio in 2018 when he revealed that “a couple songs exist.” However, five years on from these comments, these songs are still yet to surface which is possibly due to the pandemic delaying their plans to get in the studio.
Meanwhile, in a recent interview with Rock The Bells, Del The Funky Homosapien said: “I’m thinking about it. We’re basically living in the future. I would just try to work on making it more whimsical this time, not as heavy. ‘Cause I think I kinda stepped away from that with the second one a bit. I would go back to it being a little bit more whimsical, a little bit more battle rhyme-ish, you know what I’m saying?”
While there’s still no further information regarding other future shows by Deltron 3030 and new material, this is certainly a positive step toward album three.
In Run The Jewels news, last week, Killer Mike revealed the duo had almost completed work on their fifth album. He’s set to release his new solo album, Michael, in June.
