Metallungies hollers @ Delon!


Delon w/ Nelly

Recently we here at Metallungies were able to ask some questions to Delon. For those of you who don’t know who Delon is, you damn well should. He is a rapper that is very refreshing to hear, nothing like we here at ML have ever heard before. His Sri Lankan & Latin background fuses with everything that he experienced growing up in Los Angeles. This creates some of the most diverse lyrics in English, Spanish and Sinhalese, with a sound that is equally diverse. With such a rich background Delon is looking to and will have a huge 2006. He is currently on a sold out mini-tour in Sri Lanka.

ML: What upcoming projects are coming for you, and who are you working with?

Delon: I am now working on my mix tape that will release in March. I am working with the 306 allstars. This includes: Sef, Lex, Choice, and Derrese It is going to be a hot project. Also, working with the legend of doom dj's.

ML: You are multi-talented when it comes to music, what is your favorite aspect of it?

Delon: Performing. I love to perform. To have thousands of people yelling and scream and having a good time, makes me feel like I have accomplished what I set out to do.

ML: Why do you think its important to release your music so people hear it?

Delon: Because I have a message. I am saying things that are important. Important historical facts that will help to bring some peace in this world

ML: Who are your 5 biggest influences of your music?

Delon: Mos Def, Outkast (first album), Jay-Z, Dead Prez, and Biggie Smalls

ML: What are you currently listening to in your CD-deck?

Delon: TI Urban Legend. Big ups to TI, you album is the shit.


ML: Considering your eclectic background, how is your music different from anything else we've heard before?

Delon: It has a lot of cultural beats in it, and my lyrics are not the usual. I have tried to comprise and album that tells the tell of a man who is from all ethnicites.

ML: Due to your Sri Lanka roots, how did you react to the Tsunami tragedy earlier in the year?

Delon: I WAS THERE. Probably one of the most depressing days of my life. Even now, I am in Sri Lanka and the country is still is shambles. I am doing everything I can to get my people back on their feet. I work with a non-profit organization called Sri Lanka Foundation and we are building house and giving food and much more.

ML: With your music, what kind of connection are you trying to make with your listeners?

Delon: A familial one. Where they love me as much as Iove them. This life is about communication. Without that we would not be human.

ML: What role does your family play in your music?

Delon: My brothers and sister have been helping me here and there with things. There help is really just being there for me. Being a family. My parents wish the best for me and they pray that I will get my days. I will get my days. 2006 is my year

ML: Do you have any hobbies you like to participate in when you aren't touring or making music?

Delon: Driving I love to drive with a passion.
