"It's Like Gravity..." (Rating: 9 out of 10- -4.5 stars)

(4 out of 5 stars)

"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.

5. The Ruler- Another excellent song by Lee Majors, produced by Mr. Man.

Honorable Mention:

1. God Complex- Another great song

An overall A+ album that I highly recommend. Also, this album is great if you're going on a long road trip. Peace!!"
Extraordinary, lericly and Beat wise!!!!!!!!!!!

"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"

"Da Bush Babees always kept my head in a good place. 1995 and 1996 were tough years for me but real hiphop expressed by artists like Da Bush Babees and not criminals looking to use "rap music" to get over was what I needed most.

Music should inspire, uplift, make you feel good or atleast give a glimpse to something better. That is what real hiphop does, that is what this album does.

A solid five star effort.

I dig in the crates so you don't have to."
