Lab Overview

Digable Planets' classic second album! This deluxe limited edition pressing of Blowout Comb comes pressed on thick double vinyl with detailed liner notes by Larry Mizell Jr. The Brooklyn-based rap trio consisting of Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler (aka the man behind Shabazz Palaces), Craig "Doodlebug" Irving, and Mary Ann "Ladybug Mecca" Vieira perfected the fusion of jazz and hip hop with 1994's Blowout Comb. Coming right off the heals of their '93 breakout debut Reachin', Blowout found the Planets honing their craft to perfection and broadening their sound to include guests like Gang Starr’s Guru, Jeru the Damaja, and Jazzy Joyce. The deep rooted jazz vibe stays strong throughout with unfadeable beats sampling many jazz-funk greats (Roy Ayers, Shuggie Otis, Eddie Harris, Grant Green and others) plus live sax, vibraphone, and flute in the mix. Top that with that witty, intelligent flow and you have a sound that has influenced generations of rappers to come. This is jazzy Brooklyn hip-hop at its finest. Recommended.
