Bridging the Gap: BEP EmpireBridging the Gap
. An oddly appropriate name. After all, Elephunk
comes next bringing that fourth vocalist we all know and not necessarily like
. Considering that they're still a relatively under-the-radar entity at this point, it's odd that they'd release BEP Empire acting like they're on the top of the world
, but eh. Might as well enjoy their enthusiasm.
Here we have a parody Infomercial
advertising hip-hop. The most amusing part of the video is the part with "Gold Fronts" which "actually look like real gold and real diamonds!
" while making a person look hideous. In fact, much of the lyrics, including an entire verse, is dedicated as a Take That!
to sell outs. Easy, guys.
There's sampling of "Joints and Jam" and "Falling Up", since it's a song about them. Speaking of which, I find it unnecessary considering they already did a song like this, and this one seems too proud, like they let the fame get to them. Well, we still have a couple of singles from this album of merely moderate success.
