About a month ago, I randomly came across this CD while shopping for some birthday presents for myself, and didn't hesitate to pick this up. I never heard of Da Bush Babees whatsoever, and if you weren't deep in to hip hop back in '96, you probably never heard of them either. As mentioned by a few reviewers, a lot of the production stands out on this album. The majority, if not all of it, is head nodding. Lyrically, these guys were great too. Rhyming about life, and religious topics, or just straight emceeing, these guy were on point. The only track I didn't like much was "In Meh Dreams" featuring Muntcho Leo with the whole reggae sound (truthfully, it's not too often I have a taste for that kind of music). But I highly recommend to fans of albums such as Black Star or Resurrection, because Gravity is right along those levels (and it's being sold for a low price). Seriously, this is what hip hop is supposed to sound like.

My top 5 tracks are:

1. Gravity- Something about the background vocals by Nicole "Disco" Johnson over the hook makes that song special. Excellent production on this song. Falls just short of "personal favorite" status.

2. Melting Plastic- I like the rhymes that are kicked here, about making it through life. Again, great production.

3. Wax- I like the hook ("Emcees don't like our style, because they can't do no better..."), with excellent rhymes. A great song with great production.

4. The Love Song featuring Mos Def- A nice song with some softer, more mellow production that I enjoyed.

I had purchased this album back in October of 96 when it was released. I was already a fan of the band after Ambushed came out. This just added for my thirst for the trio's music. Apearances by Q-Tip, Mos Def and even a Beat by Rhazel takes the album to a new level. This is a Hip Hop classic. Which has been slept on. I hope the bush men are still working because it's time for some new conciess rap to the forfront. Remeber these guys are the next generation of the Native tongues. Not to say that De LA is going any where. These guys are definately representing Flatbush Brooklyn to the fullest. Stay True to the GAME J-rassic

After "ambushed" in'94 i was dying to hear how they'd be able to replicate it, the answer was simple....they DIDNT!!! They created a completely different, more mature, relaxed+jazzy orientated sound. This time with MR.MAN handling most of the production himself, you get the impression that THEY got the sound that THEY wanted. The same ingredients are here, with MR.MAN bringing the intellectual flows, LEE MAJORS (KAOS) bringing the no-nonsense battle rhymes and Y-TEE bringing the reggae element, this time with added gusto. With tracks like the beautiful "gravity", "melting plastic" and "maybe" (MR.MAN solo joint) and hard hitting anthems such as "wax" (my favourite), "s.o.s.", "3 mc's", "the ruler" (LEE MAJORS solo joint), "god complex" and the brilliant "love song" (produced by POS from de-la-soul) you're baring witness to an awesome album. The ONLY unfortunate part about this album is that there's only 7 group tracks and i wasnt feeling YTEE's solo joint "in meh dreams" plus there's 5 interludes where i would've prefered MORE tracks. Ive searched everywhere trying to find any material by these cats and only found their 2 albums. Both of which are in my personal top ten. Such a shame they're no longer releasing albums cuz god knows hiphop could seriously do with DA BUSH BABEES!!!

This album expresses the true meaning of hip-hop. Rapping for the love of it not the money. It seems that these days the rap section of your music shop is flooded with all this "playa rap" which is focused on the commercialism surronding hip-hop. This album takes it to a whole other level. This album is for true hip-hop headz, people who follow hip-hop as a culture and not just another fad.

I actually popped this album into the deck just out of curiousity. This joint has been sitting on the rack for years with practically zero rotation after '97. I was reading some of CTRX's reviews and saw how he was singing the praises of the underrated producer, Shawn J. Period. So I went browsing my collection for joints that had SJP beats on them when I stumbled onto this album which I had totally forgotten about. Anyway, the album is dope. It came out during a time when the jiggy rap was beginning to dominate, so it didn't get much love from the mainstream. Then you had those that didn't feel it because it didn't go in the same direction as their debut, so that didn't help in terms of popularity either. Truth be be told, the production jumps right out at you. Not only does Shawn J. Period provide dope, dope production, but Da Bush Babees also get help outs from The Ummah (Q Tip, Ali Shaheed, J Dilla, etc), Rahzel (you know, the beat box genius), Pos (from De La Soul), Charles & Chris Harrison, and group member Mr Man handles the rest by himself (7 joints). Guest shots come from Mos Def (on thre tracks), Q Tip, and Muntcho Leo and they all hold down their spots. The standout track, in my mind, has to be "The Love Song." You simply cannot miss with that Kool & The Gang sample. Every song I've ever heard it on (from Lost Boyz to Fresh Prince to Naughty By Nature and countless others) has been tight.

As far as flaws, well, I can't really think of any. There are maybe one or two joints that I would call "mood music." So if you're not in the mood, it probably won't get played. But none of those songs are worth mentioning because every track is good and most of them are great.
