Up Next. Digable Planets - Blowout Comb. While I love their first release, “Blowout Comb” buries it. It’s one of the greatest hip hop albums ever made. It didn’t sell well at the time and I tried my best to make everyone listen to it. It’s such an ambitious record. “Black Ego” was the first hip hop song I’d ever heard with a guitar solo in it. The way samples and musicians are used, I have a hard time discerning which is happening. It’s all so well blended. Great lyrics and the beats are amazingly good. It’s also just a good album to vibe to.
Day 2. “Blowout Comb” by Digable Planets. Far and away one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time, and easily one of the best albums of the 90s. Smooth, jazzy, radically poetic, and with some of the tightest rhymes out. Also, Ishmael Butler (aka Butterfly) of Digable Planets (and later Shabazz Palaces) is apparently Lil Tracy’s dad, which is kinda cool and wild. #records #vinyl #hiphop #digableplanets #blowoutcomb

This record is like an instant trip back to early 1995, when I was surviving my first winter as a freshman and still acclimating to the whole college thing. "Blowout Comb" was an instant ticket to a funky, conscious and retro-cool Brooklyn, a place I'd obviously never actually been. And from the vantage of my maturity, Digable's sophomore effort was in sync with my own evolution. If "Reachin'" had aligned with the more conventional cool jazz sounds I was exploring during high school years, the thread of "Blowout's" revolutionary Black nationalist message would feed the revolutionary spirit of my early collegiate leftist leanings. This was also the soundtrack to the first time I took in an effective dose of cannabis on campus. Had a criminal lack of label promotion at the time, but landed to critical acclaim nevertheless. Love this repackage from LITA.

Wish Digable Planets lasted more than just two albums at the time. They were really coming through with some fire jazz rap! This was such an amazing intro. Doodlebug, Butterfly & Ladybug Mecca all did their thing🔥🔥🔥
