New Jersey rapper Redman made his initial impact with Whut? Thee Album in 1992. He blended reggae and funk influences with topical commentary and displayed a terse, though fluid rap style that was sometimes satirical, sometimes tough, and sometimes silly. Redman returned in 1994 with his second album, Dare Iz a Darkside, which was a harder album than his debut. Muddy Waters, Redman's third album, followed in 1996; he returned two years later with Doc's Da Name. Newark’s favorite prodigal son Reggie Noble, aka platinum-selling Def Jam Recordings artist Redman, shows off a different side of his musical persona with the release of his 7th solo album, REGGIE. The sneak attack is initiated on the first two tracks that have already hit the street – the Internet only “Tiger Style Crane” and the new mixshow sensation, “Def Jammable.” (video directed by Clifton Bell (Ayo) to be released next week) Featured producers on REGGIE include Rockwilder and DJ Khalil, with guest appearances lined up for Method Man, Bun B, Faith Evans and his Gilla House crew. Final personnel lineups and song title sequence will be announced in the weeks ahead. He is currently on a 20 city European tour with his partner in rhyme Method Man promoting his new "REGGIE" LP Redman Def Jam's elder statesman exploded on to the hip-hop scene in 1992 with Whut? Thee Album. And still going hard an entire hiphop generation and half dozen gold and platinum albums later.
