release description

Ladybug Mecca of the beloved, breakout hip-hop group Digable Planets has the mic all to herself now. Her first solo effort, 'Trip the Light Fantastic,' shows that her voice can easily sing rock like a pro - take a listen to the feisty "Don't Disturb the Peace" - and she can easily make the transformation into future jazz. Fear not though, her rhymes are still fiercely funky and the album contains all of the above. URB magazine called Ladybug one of the Hot 100 of the year and she is indeed smokin'! Catch her on tour this summer with her old pals from Digable Planets, but also check out what she has to say about love, life, motherhood, sex and fantasy on her long-awaited, greatly anticipated solo debut.
