Digable Planets

Bio

After five years apart, the world was elated to learn that the seminal alternative hip-hop group Digable Planets reunited last year for a hometown Seattle show and subsequent tour.

The jazz-rap trio of of Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler, Mary Ann “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira , and Craig “Doodlebug” Irving produced the breezy, catchy mega-hit with”Rebirth of Slick.” Between the pulsating bass and infectious “I’m cool like dat” refrain, it’s no wonder the single hit the Billboard Top 20. Savvy Nineties-rap fans rejoiced when Digable Planets member Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler resurfaced more than 15 years later with the heady, avant-garde-leaning Shabazz Palaces.
