About Digable Planets

Digable Planets is an American alternative hip hop trio based in New York City, composed of Ishmael 'Butterfly' Butler (from Seattle), Mary Ann 'Ladybug Mecca' Vieira (from Silver Spring) and Craig 'Doodlebug' Irving (from Philadelphia). They released their debut album Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space) in 1993, and their follow-up album Blowout Comb in 1994. Shortly after this release the trio parted ways, citing 'creative differences', though they've re-united to perform shows in more recent years. Digable Planets' fusion of jazz and hip hop received excellent reviews and solid sales with the release of their debut album, Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space), in 1993, which was certified gold by the RIAA.
