We gave it an A-

Moody, ambient, and playful, Del Tha Funkee’s second effort widens the stylistic gap between him and his grimacing cousin, Ice Cube. One hundred percent gangsta-cliche free, Del’s idiosyncratic rhymes on No Need for Alarm are delivered in a deep-throated West Coast twang. He’s brave enough to rap against sexism, and smart enough never to sacrifice the funk.
