If you are a more casual fan thats hoping for another Muddy Waters, or something that sounds like any of his other classics, then skip this one.
Redman is my favorite rapper of all time, hands down. For nearly two decades hes been dropping classic after classic. Whut was one of the first tapes I ever had and I been following his career ever since, and have not been let down once. Who knows what the story is behind this album, but its out, and I'm glad to have another Red cd to add to my collection. So what if after almost 20 years he wants to try something different? Red's signature rhyming and gutter flow are still present on every track. Whats mostly different about this album are the beats and hooks - and none of his classic funny skits. Theres tracks on here I really like, and then some I cant get with.
Intro - Great way to start it off. Red doing what he does best - tearing it up over a good beat. Leaves you wanting more.
Thats Where I be - Its a club kinda beat, I been skipping over this one.
Def Jammable - I dig this one. Nice beat with good Bass. His flow is a little different here, along with the chorus, but it sounds good.
Full Nelson - No thanks.
Lift it up - A Dirty South track, I say leave that to the Southren rappers. Not diggin it.
All I do - Sounds like a R&B kinda song. Not bad, take it or leave it.
Lemme Get 2 - The thought of Red doing a softer track makes me cringe, but this isnt bad, I kinda dig it. Red rapping about life and such.
Mic, Lights, Camera, Action - No thanks.
Cheerz - This has become my favorite track on the album.Read more ›
But a couple things stick out to me on this album.
First, he REALLY needs to get back to having E.Sermon produce his albums. This cheesy T-Pain auto-tune style is just not fitting for Red.
Second, he needs to ditch the dudes from Gilla House. They add nothing to the tracks. They drag it down.
Redman is not someone who needs to have other people rapping on his tracks. But if you insist on doing it, at least bring back Keith murray. These other dudes are just wack.
I listened to this album on the way to work today and i skipped through several tracks, not even able to make it to the end of the track.
I would say there are maybe 2 solid tracks on this album that I would listen to again. The rest i will just pretend never happened.
"Whut: Thee Album" (1992) --- 4 stars
"Dare iz a Darkside" (11/94) - 4.5 stars
"Muddy Waters" (12/96) --- 4.5 stars
"Doc's Da Name" (12/98) --- 4.5/4 stars
"Malpractice" (5/01) --- 4.5/4 stars
"Red Gone Wild" --- (3/07) --- 4/4.5 stars
On top of those I have 4 group albums he's been a Part of (Def Squad's "El Nino" from 6/98, and 3 albums with Method Man: "Blackout!" 1 & 2 and the "How High Soundtrack"), plus he has put out a decent amount of quality mixtapes over the years as well. This one has 13 songs; 1 is a Classic, 1 or maybe 2 that I'd skip over, the other 10-11 are good or real good songs. Guests are on 6 of the 13 tracks, and are mostly his normal guests from the old crew; 4 songs they are rapping on and the other 2 they provide the chorus. Production is on point for the majority of the album, (like he always provides our ears) but has a couple average or sub-par songs on here.Read more ›
