Typography 14- Digable Planets



"D" is for Digable Planets. I first heard of them like everybody else through Cool Like Dat. My dad actually told me I should check them out, I think. Then I kept listening to them even when the second LP came out and most forgot about them. I went to see them perform at the Fillmore in SF in 95' when Blowout Comb was brand new, then again in 2006. Through LadyBug's individual releases, Butterfly's "Cherry Wine", and Doodlebug's solo work as C.Knowledge they're still standing strong! Peep this video of them live in Toronto. Two of my favorites:
Pacifics (NY Is Red hot)
Graffiti feat Jeru Da Damaja
