Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler joins Justin to talk about the reunion of his groundbreaking hip hop group Digable Planets, being surprised at how successful they were after their first record came out, looking back on those days with fondness, the pressure of following up a big hit, commercial vs. critical success, stretching the boundaries of hip hop, the changing landscape of the music industry and the anxiety and excitement that goes along with playing at the Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend.
