CD REVIEW: Fredro Starr - Dat B Dem (single)
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Fredro Starr
Genre: Rap/Hip Hop
CD Review:
You probably all know the Starr name. That hip hop dude that's sold 10 million albums and keeps company on the Moesha tv series. Well, the first single to the new cd which will drop out of the sky around Jan. 23, 2001 is the phat-catchy 'Dat B Dem', a 3.5 minute hop opera filled with cool click rap and a memorable synth opening that lays out the tune that will remain in your memory long after the 21 minute, 6 track cd stops its spinning.

Gliding into track 4 gives us the 3 versions of 'Dying For Rap', heavy on the beat, lite on the apologies, blended in a dramatic musical motif that keeps spinning around and around on the electro-keys.

For those who want a more street-wise induction to the songs, try tracks 2 and 5 which give you the DIRTY versions. And don't forget to dig the last thing, the instrumental of 'Dying For Rap', which is really just the same thing with the vocals removed. Sing along. Drive yo' big mama cra-zy with your own nasty ass kareoke.
