Below is our in depth interview w/ Cee Knowledge of the group Digable Planets.. Here he talks about a variety of topics including the humble origins of the group.. How Ladybug Meca wound up being a 3rd member. He talks about how the group developed its signature sound which many feel was a precursor to the Neo Soul sound that emerged years later..

Cee Knowledge talks about why the group broke up and the role label politics played in downplaying their second album ‘Blow Out Comb‘.  We conclude by speaking about the people they hope to work with as they undertake the challenges of working on new material.. Questlove from the Roots wants to be on board.. They would love to work with Shock G of Digital Underground.. Q-Tip is another one they’d like to build with especially since Digable saw the Native Tongues as huge influences..

It’s always a fun to do our weekly mix show because we can not only dig deep, but also re-live memorable Hip Hop moments. One of the highlights we experienced was our interview with Ice Cube during the height of the Hyphy Movement. You’ll enjoy this conversation we had with Ice Cube where he gives his take on the Bay Area, rapping vs acting and what it takes to be an emcee and a B-Boy. He talks about how he finally took time out to focus on his album. He also talks about Black-Brown relationships..

During our second hour we go digging in the crates and pull out some classic Digital Underground, Digable Planets, Fu-Schnickens, Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr and Queen Latifah to name a few..We added a couple lf videos for you to check out as well..Lots of tasty beats to move your feet.. enjoy
