It was recently the 25th anniversary of Del’s No Need for Alarm, and he chopped it up with David Ma and Nate LeBlanc for Wax Poetics’ inaugural podcast to recall the recording of the album.

Ambrosia For Heads also sat down with Del, Domino & Dante Ross for an interview about the making of the record and the formation of the Hieroglyphics sound.

He says, “I had to put my favorite song from my Favorite Hip-Hop album of all time, Public Enemy’s, It takes a Nation of Millions to hold us Back. I miss the days when songs of substance were the norm in Hip-Hop. Public Enemy single handedly educated an entire Hip-Hop generation. Public Enemy was perfect, Chuck D’s militant lyrics and powerful preacher like voice, Flavor Flav’s hype and comic relief and the Bomb Squad’s manic soundscape of drums and samples. In this song Chuck defiantly states, “to understand my demands, I gave a warning…I wanted the governor ya’ll plus the Warden to know, that I am innocent because I’m militant. Posing a threat, you bet its fucking up the government.”

He says, “I woke up with it on my mind for some reason. The great thing about music and melody is understanding the lyrics doesn’t always matter. Reminds me of Portishead, especially when the drum drop.”
