“My name is Reggie Noble, I’m a sexaholic (Hi Reggie)/ I f*cked my babysitter on my momma’s toilet”
Apparently, I’m a hypocrite. No more than two days ago, I tweeted my disapproval of rappers reusing old instrumentals during an era in Hip-Hop where production is rich as ever. However, there’s just something nostalgic about Redman rocking over this specific Slim Shady instrumental that makes me turn the blind eye. More so than “Lose Yourself,” “I’m Not Afraid” or really any of Em’s instrumentals since becoming a superstar, this sinister Bass-Bros-production comes from a time when Chrysler’s savior was way less commercial and in his own way, imitating the Brick City MC he claimed as his inspiration.
Now, fifteen years later, Reggie does a 360 and lets go of this spot-on impersonation of his Detroit counterpart, allowing him to fully recapture his reckless, lyrical roots.
Still, just because this gets approval, that doesn’t make rapping to the same beats over and over again okay.
