Gravity is the acclaimed second album from Hip Hop group Da Bush Babees. The crew got help from a number of fellow Native Tongues members, including The Ummah, Mos Def and De La Soul's Posdnous. The lead single "The Love Song" received strong airplay prior to the album's release. Along with De La Soul's Stakes Is High, Gravity is notable for jump-starting the hip-hop career of Mos Def, who is featured on three tracks on the album ("Intro," "The Love Song," and "S.O.S."). However Warner Bros. released this group from its contract after the album ran its course.
