Digable Planets - "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)"

Digable Planets are a group that don't get nearly enough credit as they deserve.  There 1993 debut album Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space) probably did more to spread the Jazz Hop sound than ATCQ (a classic group in their own right).  This song is off of their debut and has been referenced often in hip hop lore (it's sampled on E-40's 2006 Yay Area).  DP fell off a little with their second album Blowout Comb and didn't put out much after that, but we can still look back on Reachin' as the seminal album that it is.

Peace, Love, & Hip Hop,
