Da Bush Babees - Gravity
Da Bush Babees is a group of underground hip-hop artists loosely affiliated with the Native Tongues. The three grew up in Jamaica and Trinidad, and hence reggae strongly influenced their style, but it was in 1992 in Brooklyn, NY that the group formed. After their early concert dates attracted major-label interest, the trio performed live office auditions and signed with Reprise three months after launching the group.
Their second album, Gravity (1996), was the group's first underground and commercial success. Its lead single, "The Love Song", was produced by Posdnous of De La Soul; that single also featured a then-unknown Mos Def singing the chorus.
