Da Bush Babees Featured in Vibe Magazine (1995)

Da Bush Babees Vibe June-July 1995 Mr. Man

Taken from Da Bush Babees' feature in Vibe (June-July '95), 'Three years ago, out of this multi-cultural boiling pot were born Da Bush Babees, a reggae-hip-hop trio whose hit singles 'We Run Things (It's Like Dat)' and 'Remember We' from their debut album, 'Ambushed,' have served notice: The old-school sounds of Brooklyn remain in full effect, and their freewheeling style isn't a hodgepodge - it's a way of life.' All facts. Not too long after, Da Bush Babees would shorten their name to Bush Babees, claiming that 'intelligent people were mispronouncing it and that became annoying.' lol. Great answer, Lee. As a trio, Mr. Man (aka Mr. Khaliyl), Y-Tee (aka Light) and Babe-B-Face Kaos (aka Lee Majors) came with a sound that is still being duplicated to this day (and on a very mainstream level). Not only their singles, but their full albums 'Ambushed' and 'Gravity' are packed with vibes, and should be revisited & celebrated as often as possible.
