Talent Bio

American hip-hop group Digable Planets was founded in 1987. Rappers Craig “Doodlebug” Irving, Mariana “Ladybug Mecca,” and Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler make up the group. The ensemble is renowned for its contributions to jazz rap and alternative hip-hop subgenres.

In the later 1980s, Butler and Irving met in Philadelphia. Butler, who is from Seattle, met Irving, a Philadelphia native who was rapping with a group called the Dread Poets Society, while Butler was visiting his grandmother in Philadelphia while working as an intern at Sleeping Bag Records in New York. The initial demos recorded under the name Digable Planets featured only Butler, but after a brief stint with two other members, Butler began working with Irving and Vieira in 1989. Irving had in turn met Vieira, who was originally from Silver Spring, Maryland while attending Howard University in Washington, D.C. Butler had met Vieira while attending Howard University in Washington, D.C.
