Bridging the Gap is the second studio album by American hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas, released on September 26, 2000. The album had three official singles: "BEP Empire/Get Original", "Weekends" and "Request + Line", the last featuring Macy Gray.
Bridging the Gap", the second single from Nas' Street's Disciple, features his father, Olu Dara, and samples music from Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy" composition. Olu Dara provides the hook of the song by talking about his path and how Nas was born.
While the album fails in its titular intention of bringing together the two exclusionary worlds of rap and rock, it still diligently follows in the footsteps of its predecessor's highs. Maybe one might have to look toward Kim Hill - the group's backing vocalist - who seems to have a larger impact this time. Because Bridging the Gaps is a terrific follow-up full of warmth. Unlike what the advertisements might say, this is a multi-ethnic, multi-faceted substitute that should be accepted immediately.
