Bilal…Testing out Fast Lanes in SA

Grammy nominated, Neo-Soul artist Bilal will be coming to South Africa for two back-to-back concerts! If you’re in Cape Town on 5 August or in Joburg on 6 August, then you are in luck as these are the two chosen cities. If not, then you better book them flights – cos we all know how them airlines been taking a *bleeeeeep* these last few months.

In the meantime, some background for those that don’t know…

In 2001, Bilal released his debut album 1st Born Second, which featured the production prowess of Dr. Dre. The album was critically lauded but failed to achieve significant mainstream success, and received limited promotion. (We blame the record label! Cough…Interscope.) Still, Bilal managed to gain a pretty darn good following. You may know the tracks ‘Soul Sista,’ ‘Fast Lane’ and ‘Love It.’

Bilal went on to release ‘Love For Sale‘ in 2006 and ‘Airtight’s Revenge‘  in Septermber last year.

In addition to working with Dre, Bilal has also worked with hip-hop artists Dead Prez,  the deceased but unforgotten J Dilla (the producer extraordinaire), Jill Scott, John Legend, Erykah Badu, The Game, AND Talib Kweli and Common who are both also set to touch down in SA sometime this year. The list goes on.

      I’m still waiting for feedback from the promoter. Will put a post up as soon as I get word. Will follow up.
