Move over, Method Man and Redman: Hip-hop's newest answers to Cheech and Chong are ready to burn down the house. With their respective ribald tales of weed, women, and song, Del and Devin might well have been separated at birth. We're referring to rhymesayer Del Tha Funky Homosapien of Oakland's mighty Hieroglyphics crew (they of the brilliant blunted beats and three-eyed-man T-shirts) and Houston's Devin the Dude, the Dirty South's beloved rap comedian who has appeared on records by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre and has his own group in the Coughee Brothaz. Both are big Bay Area favorites, attracting crowds that seem to know every word to every song despite the probability of compromised brain cells. Del and Devin helm quite a green party at the "11th Hour Tour." Bukue One and the Serendipity Project open.
