Mid-Hiatus Aporia

Sorry for the extended hiatus but it's going to have to continue.  I hope to get something up in the next few days.  I've got a waiting list of reviews to write...

Anyway, I'm poking my head out from my GRE study hole to complain that this album never won a Hugo?!  

This album should have won the 2001 Best Related Work.  Just look at this description from wikipedia:
"The album's story 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."
I'm at a loss for why it didn't even receive a nomination.  How often do hip-hop and science fiction intersect AND this one achieved rather popular appeal.  I have to imagine it warranted a blip on the radar.

The whole album is great but 'Virus' was special fun:

So, sorry for the continued absence but I'll be back permanently very soon.  Until then...upgrade your grey matter!


  1. I'm so glad you posted these! Both are really cool...I think I prefer the feel of 3030 more.

    I pretty much love hip hop in any alternative/unconventional setting.

    1. Glad you liked 'em too. I like 3030 better also.
