<a href=""> Have a seat there youngster and let Redman show you how he's been handling biz before YouTube and iPods became the predominant form of consuming music. Harking back to the days where Rap City participants actually competed who could have the most engaging flick, Doctor Noble dodges chubby chasers, inferno blasts and sadly, a ménage à trois (for PG-13 purposes) to give you the entertainment you crave as stores worldwide prepare to roll out Redman Presents...Reggie for your holiday shuffle. He even reps for <a href="">HHIR</a> in the vid.


Redman – Pancakes & Syrup

By | 3 Comments

<a href=""> Whose ever bright idea it was to have Redman drop a mixtape a few days before his album is set to hit stores, definitely is one flapjack short of a full stack. It probably never occurred to them that Redman's unGoogleable Reggie title would surely be eclipsed by the more catching Pancakes & Syrup and its songs would blindside the actual album's tracklist. Eh...whatever is clever, I guess. For those of you in-the-know, Redman's 7th album, Reggie drops December 7th and he's making MCs break fast like scrambled eggs and bacon with his new freebie.

Christmas With Def Jam 2010

By | 16 Comments

<a href=""> Without the proper buzz window and overdriven promotion, releasing an album in these dire times could be a wasted effort. Good thing the folks over at Def Jam have a bulletproof blueprint that no penny pincher can shoot down. By deviously planting unforeseen albums in stores during the holiday hustle-n-bustle, they're bound to scan a few discs just of the principality. Let's envision the scenario: Example A is 36-year-old male who runs into Best Buy to pay off last few dollars for the plasma TV his wife always wanted. Due to panic-stricken customers and the stressed teenagers forced to endure the breath of hell over nitpicky details like mislabled DVD box sets, Example A is going to be in line for a while. As he people watches to prevent succumbing to a ghastly boredom demise, he notices the new album from Ghostface Killah, Apollo Kids. Sure he enjoyed the sounds of Ironman during his college heyday, but that was years ago and as far as he's concerned, MP3 is a company who sends him bills every month. Now that he's briefly trailed off into a memory lane with the smell of blunt fog clouding the room as "Camay" plays softly in the background, he decides to tempt fate and see if GFK can bring his life a bit of nostalgia once again. And just like that, one unit has been shipped and sold. That's how it goes, right? Hellllll. To. The. Nah. You fuddy duddies don't buy CDs no more. But here's your Def Jam Christmas bundle of joy for 2K10 in case you get your mind right. <a href=""> Artist: Ghostface Killah New Album: Apollo Kids Last Album: <a href="">The Wizard Of Poetry: In Emerald City</a> (2009) Synopsis: Ghostdini rhymes get packaged up in the waning days of the year to save Hip-Hop yet again.

Redman Presents Reggie

Redman – “Defjammable”

By | 16 Comments

<a href=""> Reggie’s back. Back again. And New Jersey’s greatest export brings us one of the lead singles off the end of the year album Reggie Presents Redman, “Defjammable.” The beat definitely packs the appropriate oomph you’d expect from a man whose built a career off of dirty, funky bass lines. His verses here aren’t quite up to his best work, lacking the frenetic pace and wit that have helped him build a two decade career. As last year’s Blackout 2 proved, Reggie can still run with the best of them when properly focused and motivated. Fans of that album should grab this and watch for the album dropping this December. Download -- <a href="">Redman - "Defjammable"</a>.


The iPod Shuffle – “Buck 50″

By | 21 Comments

<a href=""> "Supercalifragalisticexpialidocious/Dociousaliexpifragalisticcalisuper/Cancun, catch me in the room, eatin grouper..." Pretty gutter track, but <a href="">Ghost's</a> line above never fails to crack me up due to its randomness.


Rah Digga Feat. Redman – “This Ain’t No Lil Kid Rap (Remix)”


<a href=""> How should Rah Digga garner a little attention for her upcoming album and the associated lead single? By hooking up with fellow Jerz representer Reggie Noble, that's how. Nottz keeps <a href="">the original</a> largely intact, giving "the king and queen of Brick City" a nice soundscape to prove that like fine wine rappers can get better with time.
