Still one of my favourite Redman joints of the boom bap classic ‘Whut Thee Album’.
“you wanna see me get cool, please, save it for the breeze, cause the lyrics and tracks, make me funky like cottage cheese, fuck the smoov shit, I get down wit the boom bip, like Q-Tip, I kick more styles than Bruce shoe’s kick”
This is DAT SHIT. Never knew this was by Redman but always loved the beat. The joy and curse of being a ‘90’s baby. All the good shit was when you was an infant. Fuck.
And now I know where One.Be.Lo gets that line “I don’t claim to be a big rap star, cuz no matter who you are, it’s still Allahu Akbar” from. Big ups to OneManArmy for the reference and big ups to Redman for making this smoove track.
This album is so damned enjoyable. Redman’s a really funny guy and he’s got a great nod-your-head kinda flow. Also, every time I listen to him I think about his fake Cribs episode, which never fails to make me laugh: http://www.wimp.com/bestcribs/
