Who said no real hip hop comes out of L.A.? These three cats truly represent the diversity of west coast hip hop. For the sake of these guys I wish they would have been marketed better. Their music is flawless, socially consciuos, and just all together tight! When I heard thier first record "Behind the Front" I was impressed and when I heard "Bridging the Gap" I was blown away. If your a fan of truly good music and lyrics with content you have to check these guys out.

I appreciate the fact that these cats don't need to cuss like crazy, and they do have skill. But I wasn't feelin the beats too much and I just couldn't connect with the lyrics that well. I prefer Jurassic 5 over these guys any day. Not a bad album, but not my cup a tea.

As Will Smith would say, "This is the new hotness!" Of course, this is something that the Men in Black star (a.k.a. Mr. Jiggy-wit-it) could not possibly produce - an original brand of hip hop. "Bridging the Gaps" is the sparkling fresh followup to Black Eyed Peas' okay debut "Behind the Front." (Admittedly, I stayed away from this one because I was none to impressed with them initially. My loss.) What separates BEP from other artists is their back-to-the-basics-hip hop sound combined with their fun approach to flat out making you dance. Singles such as "Weekends" and "Request Line," could fill up any dance floor. Other radio-worthy tracks include "Release," "Hot," and "Go Go." As the titles of these songs suggest, this is not an album that requires much thought. It's strictly made for the clubs or for bumping in the car. But this should not discourage the stingy faction of hip hop fans (i.e. backpackers, gangstas) from peeping this album. Even they would find it hard not to resist the infectious boom bap beats laid down by MC/producer, Will I Am. BEP gets whole props for creating an original style of hip hop that virtually anyone can enjoy.
Peace,

see i wouldve rated this cd with five stars but anything with wyclef and macy gray makes me want to dry heave, they should be tossed off the side of the earth. but newayz lol, this cd has tight beats etc.. the 'guest' appearances are nothing less than ill, the track with mos and le nubians has to arguably be one of the best tracks and lil lil damn i dont know where to begin. but if your a serious hip hop head you'll love this jawn.

Oh and it's some lyrical power to this too. But I must say, the beats and melodies and organic music is great. But it's not just fast, party music, what people don't realy notice is the versitility on here. Even though by the end of this cd u may have--in your head--you may be thinkin of party music, but this sophmore effort has a more broad pallette of not only diverse tunes, but lyrics as well, cetain ones in particular are "On My Own" which is quite profound and has not only Les Nubians, but Mos Def on there, and it works; and another the "title" cut is a little laid back whisch is great as well as "Little little" is really goos. But it's hard to tell which one is best, caue ust about this whole cd is right on point!
I must say that I like REAL hiphop and rap, none of that commercial, jiggy, and poppy stuff. Even thoguh some of this might be reminiscent to that stuff, it really ISN'T! U have to reaslly listen to it good, and beleive me I seem to always have a feeling in my stomach when listening to rap and hiphop, that's what tells me what is good from bad. I have come to listen to a lot of stuff which can range from brilliant to preposterous and different levels in between. Well they are what pushed the border between in-between and brilliant. It really good album, but it's sometimes airy and not as grounded as the Roots, but then that's another review.

Gotta highy endorse this one. This is one of those albums that will grow on you...all the songs have a different feel, and I can't think of a song on the album that I don't like.
So...short and sweet: If you like hip hop, or are open to different genres of music...give this album a look.

I have more respect for BEP than a lot of other groups around. Thing is, its a shame to say, but its party rap. It really is. Its not even good party rap. Its better rap than your P Diddy's and Mase's but.....nothanks. Its like, there are things within it are could almost be J5. NOT J5, but nearly at the very bottom standard of it. I dont see the point of this CD. You either go out and buy hip hop, or you buy a remix of a dance song. This tries to combine both....once again......no thankyou. Yeah, they can breakdance. Thats pretty cool, but its not worth a CD, just a handshake. If youre thinking about getting this....eheh, dont. Get J5, or Illmatic by Nas. Try out Lewis Parker or Deltron 3030. If you DONT care about borderline RNB/HIP HOP, then get it. Youll probably love it.
