Aw man! The Gorillaz may be a cartoon band, but they can feel pain just like you or I! Fans felt this in full after Del The Funky Homosapien, the rapper who has for long joined the Gorillaz on tour due to his mind melting raps on Demon Days and the Gorillaz’s self titled album, came out on stage to perform his rap portion from “Clint Eastwood” at Denmark’s Rolskide Festival. Unfortunately, maybe forgetting that his ghost character is just that — a character– Del walked out too far and walked right off stage, falling into the audience! Oh no! Del!
Del, according to Rolskide’s Facebook page, was treated by a doctor on the scene, remaining alert the entire time and was taken to a hospital. He later Tweeted out that he’s going to be in the hospital for a few days, but is okay and receiving incredible care. Phew! Again, we are not ready for Del to be an actual ghost juuuust yet.
Thank you all for the love! I’m doing alright but will be in the hospital for a bit, the care here is outstanding though. Much love to @gorillaz for having me out and I’ll be back soon yall???????? pic.twitter.com/p383Mc2Qh5

To celebrate Del The Funky Homosapien’s incredible talent, here he is flying out of Russell’s head during the original animated video for Clint Eastwood.
Our thoughts are with Del. Funkier homosapiens are few and far between and we need his incredible rap skills soon!
Gorillaz have been in the news recently after releasing their latest album, The Now Now, which boasts raps from Snoop Dogg, and cameo appearances from Ace from The Powerpuff Girls, showing that real life musicians aren’t the only ones who the Gorillaz pay homage to. As far as we can tell, Del the Funky Homosapien is nowhere to be seen, and may have been exorcised from Russell (the drummer’s head). If you want to learn more about the complex continuity of Gorillaz, here’s a video that can help with just that.
