"Fast Lane" & "Sally" Reviewed (2 Dre Tracks)
« on: August 24, 2001, 11:09:51 AM »
Afer hearing "Soul Sista" I knew Bilal was someone I could kick back to.  On his knew album, "1rst Born Second" the good Doctor produces two cuts.  Peep my review...

"Fast Lane" - An uptempo track that may take a bit to get use to because of Bilal's unique brand of singing.  The beat is signature 2001 Dre as you'll come to hear.  Jadakiss has a pretty nice verse which I didn't recognize because he isn't credited for the song.  Maybe "Fast Lane" was supposed to be used for Jada's album, but Dre never finished it so he used it for Bilal's album.  At the end Sid McCoy from "The Aftermath Intro" drops a line to tell ya whats up..."This is another Dr. Dre production."  An average song:  3.5/5 dubs.

"Sally" - Dre & Mel-Man team up for a retro-funk track that is bangin.  Here, Dre does a great job of utilizing Bilal's voice for the song.  The hook is great and they beat is also some next level shit.  Overall, a better song, with a better beat in my opinion.  A good track that should be a single:  4/5 dubs.

I'm still playin the album through as I gotta let it soak in a lil more.  So far it's tight, I'll try to review the whole record if I get time.

Anyone else feel these 2 songs?
