Biography

Funky DL

Funky DL truly follows his passion: Back in 1995 a 17-year-old MC took to the hip-hop scene in the UK. Armed only with a few demos and oblivious of how to prosper in the music industry, little did he know he would end up being one of the few pioneers of hip hop in the UK. Only two years later he scored a 5 album deal with no management, won a MOBO award in the category of Best Hip Hop Act and was the only X3 consecutive UK hip-hop nominee period. Looking back to another 12 successful years within the industry, DL was releasing nearly 50 different 12”s and 18 albums, remixing for famous acts such as Missy Elliot and Keith Sweat, travelling the world, touring and producing, owning and running a respected record label… Now, proving the earned title of hardest working man in hip-hop, Funky DL doesn’t even think of resting: he will drop his 19th album release entitled “The Interview” on BBE Records this summer.
