Redman Releases A Song That Reminds Us Why We All Love Hip-Hop (Video)
Since the 1990s Redman has been able to remain one of the most consistent MCs. While many who hit their peak at a young age and understandably decline over the years, the New Jersey native’s been able to remain a force to be reckoned with, both through his catalog and the sharpness of his bars. The latest evidence of this comes via his new video “I Love Hip Hop.”
This is that straight raw from Reggie Noble. He’s not trying to be anything he’s not. He’s got those straightforward bars from the essence and he isn’t afraid to spit them. “Sawed off shotgun, hand on the pump,” he raps on the song, as an ode to Cypress Hill. “Sippin’ on the 40, smoking on the blunt / Bust my gun, Redman didn’t jump / La-La-La-La-La-La-La-La.” In the video, Red plays a disgruntled club employee who is at the receiving end of harsh orders from his boss. The only thing that keeps his hard knock life going is his love for the culture.
Redman commented about how excited is to be releasing new music and it sounds like even more is on the way. “Droppin’ new music for the summer is freakin’ dope; summertime is money time as well. Everyone is home from school, etc,” Redman told AllHipHop. “I’m independent now and my business skills turned way up! Music is the outlet to bigger and better business; that’s what I’m excited about. I can promise my fans what you see from me is what you get! No additives, no preservatives. Raw, uncut music!”
Redman’s latest video was directed by Riveting Entertainment, the same company that put together Ohio rapper Cal Scruby’s visual for “Do Or Die”, during which Red makes a rapping appearance.
