Taking a page from the Wu-Tang Clan, Digable Planets has formed like Voltron.
Original members Butterfly, Ladybug Mecca, and Cee Knowledge (formerly known as Doodlebug), have big plans for 2012, including a tour and album.
The group attained platinum status in 1993 with their album Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space), and earned a Grammy Award for the song “Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat).”
Digable Planets’ last release was the 1994 album Blowout Comb.
Further details on the tour and album are not available as of press time.
UPDATE: In the wake of this month’s earlier reports, a Ladybug Mecca spokesperson has released a statement refuting claims that Digable Planets has reunited. While Cee Knowledge and Ish are indeed touring, the female emcee said the following, “Though a dialog has started about possible plans in the future, nothing has been contracted yet. All reports of Digable Planets, and/or Ladybug Mecca’s appearance with them, are false and inaccurate.”
