Decided the hair needed a blowout for a change. #backtothe70s #blowoutcomb #afro #afrocomb
Day 14 of the #mayvinylchallenge is “Best late night spin” and Digable Planets’ “Blowout Comb” is one of the best chill, jazzy, funky hip-hop albums of all time and a desert island album for me. I was so happy when this was reissued on vinyl. I love the debut but this blows that away. I can put this on and I am instantly chill. I was also lucky enough to see them on this tour with Spearhead opening in support of their debut “Home.” @planetsdigable #blowoutcomb #nowspinning #vinyl #hiphop #hiphopvinyl #vinylcollection #recordcollection #jazzyhiphop @lightintheatticrecords @modernclassicrecords

Now that the whole election brouhaha is over, I can move on to the real important stuff -- namely finishing the translation of a script (one of the more mundane aspects of my job 😆) -- and I have just the right soundtrack for it. /// I have to admit, when I first listened to the #BlowoutComb all those years ago, I was quite disappointed. It wasn't as immediate as #Reachin ', and there seems to be no clear singles material in the vein of "Rebirth of Slick" or "Where I'm From". But after a while, I realized that the album is just as good as that classic debut. The songs eventually reveal their hooks; the raps were just as intelligent as on Reachin'; and the emphasis on real instruments certainly played a part in elevating the overall quality. Now I'm not an overt #hiphop or contemporary RnB listener, but this is one album that has proven to be stunningly rewarding and worth many spins! 🎧 · · · #digableplanets #butterfly #doodlebug #ladybug #ishmaelbutler #jazzrap #alternativerap #acidjazz #90smusic #pendulumrecords #blackego #boroughcheck #cdcollection #instacd #underratedalbum #workmusic #afternoonspin

Great in-depth essay on the story of Digable Planets : THE RADICAL BLACKNESS OF DIGABLE PLANETS . by Raghav Raj @albumoftheweek__ . "The story of Digable Planets begins during the late 1980’s in the culturally rich City of Brotherly Love. Ishmael ‘Butterfly’ Butler was based in Seattle, interning at Arthur Russell’s Sleeping Bag Records in New York, and intermittently visiting his grandmother and father in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, studying at the prestigious HBCU Howard University in Philadelphia, Craig ‘Doodlebug’ Irving got into the local hip hop scene through hanging out with some Five-Percenters, where he’d often see and talk to Butler. Here, Irving also met Mary Ann ‘Ladybug’ Vieira, a Brazilian-American dance-crew member from Maryland, introducing her to Butler. Eventually, Butler would recruit both Irving and Vieira for his project, named Digable Planets, signing with Pendulum Records off of the strength of a few loose demos. . It’s this collision of incredibly different artistic identities and backgrounds that made Digable Planets such a unique, vital voice in the burgeoning East Coast hip-hop scene of the early ‘90’s. Along with contemporaries like De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, Digable Planets became forebearers of a new, peacefully afrocentric sound that stood in stark contrast to the gangster rap sweeping the West Coast scene. Sharing interest in Five-Percenter ideologies and the teachings of Marx, Sartre, and Nietzsche, the trio’s lyrics combined down-to-earth observations of their inner-city surroundings with their utopian philosophies." /.. / .

I’m on a roll for hip hop this week, there aren’t many more mellow albums than A Tribe Called Quest but ‘Blowout Comb’ by Digable Planets is one of them. It was released with no publicity and has an unfinished feeling but it’s so relaxed, one of the best albums to smoke to. It’s like going on your own to a really downtempo jazz gig with the band playing to an empty hall, really sounds like an unknown secret. The lyrics are full on Black nationalist but they’re mixed quite low and blend well with a lush instrumental soundscape that combines samples with live jazz. If you like Tribe and De La Soul you’ll love this.

#throwbackthursday 🙌🏾Digable Planets 🌍💫This trio was #oneofakind 💯There hasn’t been any group like them since. Butterfly 🦋, Ladybug 🐞 Mecca, and Doodlebug were some funky cats. I remember when I first heard “Rebirth Of Slick(Cool Like Dat), I thought 💭 it was one of the coolest songs I had ever heard. They won a #grammy for it and they deserved it. That single became a crossover smash hit from that era. These cats combined #hiphop and #jazz , and made songs that absolutely slapped💯Their production and sound was dope af🎶🎼🎺🎷Straight 🔥I miss that sound that them, Tribe and Camp Lo had😩I’ve never heard any #hiphopgroup like them. Ever💯Take in positive #vibes this #thursday and enjoy 😉 your self and life! ✌🏾 #throwback #classic #timeless #legends #hiphopyoutheloveofmylife #ishmaelbutler #marianavieira #craigirving #brooklyn #refutationoftimeandspace #blowoutcomb #nickelbagofunk #groovy #90s #unique #digableplanets
Digable Planets The May 4th Movement Album: Blowout Comb 1994 I'm up cleaning, lol. This is the first track that popped up on my playlist (if y'all don't know, most black folk listen to music as they clean; I got it from my momma 😆) Arguably, one of the best hip hop albums, OF ALL TIME, at least in my book. Highly underrated group, in my humble opinion. This album eclipsed their first outing, in every way. Not saying Reachin' wasn't a good album, as it was, but this one right here was crafted perfectly, from the live instrumentation, samples, lyrics, features, you name it. The May 4th Movement, Jettin', Borough Check, and Dial 7 are in constant repeat in terms of my favorite songs, but the whole album gets played from front to back. Good stuff... #digableplanets #blowoutcomb #90shiphop #meccatheladybug #doodlebug #butterfly #shabazzpalaces
