Digable Planets – Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space) (1993)
Reachin’ is the debut album from NYC trio Digable Planets. The poetic style, the solid gold sample research (amazing jazz cuts) and the simplicity of how these elements harmonize and flow together are the reason why this album goes up in Hip Hop history.
From your a 40′s and blunts fueled house party to a cookout with the older folks, wherever you bump this, its Hip Hop party.
