FORECASTLE: Method Man canceled, GZA/Genius & Del the Funky Homosapien pick up the slack

According to the Forecastle website, Headliner Method Man has canceled his appearance at Forecastle, but GZA & Del tha Funky Homosapien have been added to take his place.

At present, it appears that nobody, including the organizers, have gotten a clear picture on why Meth pulled out, but he should’ve known that wouldn’t prevent JK from giving birth to a bigger and better Forecastle than ever, thanks to former Wu fellow, GZA/Genius & Del. I had the chance to see GZA/Genius at Deal Real Records off Carnaby Street in London, along with Mos Def, and the impromtu concert packed the place out, and GZA twisted the entire place with his signature wordplay.  While GZA’s album, Pro Tools (which sounds like a Mac application), is as yet still unrelease, Del the Funky Homosapien’s The 11th Hour this year has been well-received. Pitchfork notes that “the barrage of lyrics is exhausting without being tedious, with endlessly-parseable knots of phraseology and weird little asides everywhere to keep your attention”, this Forecastle could prove to be the battle of the linguists….
