“Red Gone Wild” parties through America


Redman is finally going to promote his first album in over five years, Red Gone Wild. Overlooked by some and praised by others, the album was a fine return to form for the Funk Doc from Brick City. But kids who go to see him won’t care about that. They’ll want to hear the hits, and he has plenty of them, from “How High” and “Da Rockwilder” to “Time 4 Sum Aksion” and “Blow Ya Mind.”

Redman can hold down a stage by himself, but he’ll be taking two fledging acts along with him. Akir, a political-minded MC who has earned plaudits for his 2006 debut Legacy. Released on Immortal Technique’s Viper Records in 2006, Babygrande reissued Legacy last July. Then there’s Kidz in the Hall, a duo featuring Naledge and Double-O. Favorites of the Okayplayer.com crowd, they issued School is My Hustle via Major League Entertainment/Rawkus last fall.

So get to the venue early to see Akir and Kidz in the Hall, and be prepared to scream “Fuck You!” from Red’s “I’ll Bee That” at the top of your lungs. The tour dates are below.
